Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety. Notes: The entire 2nd generation Odyssey (1999-2004) is just one giant transmission problem waiting to happen.

Odyssey EX 3.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 130,000 miles


Sometimes you have to push the door from the inside to get it to unstick. It's either that or break the handles.

With a 6 year-old child this was really inconvenient. I had to climb in through another door.

Odyssey LX 3.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles

This could be extremely dangerous if you needed to get people out of the car in an emergency, not to mention the pain of having to have the kids climb in through the front doors on any cold morning.
