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.

Recently, while driving my car on the freeway my car decideds to shut off which is scary and has happended more than once and not having the speed of control of trying to get over when you are in the fast lane. This has happened numerous of times. My main concern is how many other people have this happened to before. This is very dangerous and a serious situation because you don't know if the car behind you will slow down. I always end up pressing my emergency light right away, hoping the other drivers are paying attention because I am driving with my children in the vehicle. Five kids I take to school everyday and my main concern is there saftey at all times.
