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

problem #3

Apr 222011

Odyssey EX 3.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 150,000 miles


Volume sticks while going up, not down. Now it's blasting and nothing you can do but reach for the dash. Or does not respond to buttons whatsoever.

problem #2

Sep 202006

Odyssey EX 6 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 63,000 miles

Evidently, this problem is fairly common. Brought it to Honda dealer, and they offered no solution. Found the part online for $20.00 from,2575&groupid=51862&subgroupid=5351&make=12&model=Odyssey&year=2002&catalogid=2&displayCatalogid=0 . If you can spend only $20 on a car repair, then it's a good day.

Odyssey EXL 3.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles

Volume controls change station. Channel buttons change volume or don't work. Down volume button increases volume, etc.
