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.

2002 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

Head restraints (hr) do not work as described on pgs 14 & 104 of owners manual. I have a long torso and the fully extended head restraints hit me below the bottom of my skull. From the top of the fully extended hr there is still 10" to the roof. I called the local dealer & Honda am about alt. Hr's with longer posts. I was told none exist even though I can't comply with the safety instructions of their manual. To me, Honda can be suied for faulty eq. If I'm rear ended and received neck/spine injuries. The local dealer parts dept said I'm not the first to ask about the short posts on head restraints.
