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.

problem #1

Jan 012008


  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles

$931 for two "rollers" . I had an extended warranty that is still in effect, but the dealer told me that the rollers weren't covered! Had to pay out of pocket for a defect that I know has happened to many others. We had the problem when the car was about a year old, also. The door would stick and couldn't be opened or shut easily. They fixed it that time. This time the door wouldn't shut at all and would fly open when driving. The right hand sliding door couldn't be opened at all, so the kids had to go in the front doors and climb into the back. This problem should be covered under ANY warranty as it is a defect of the van. Very frustrating.
