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.

(reported on)


  • miles
Rear brakes started making a metallic clicking noise around 3000 miles when vehicle shifts direction. Honda stated that this was normal; however, the noise has got increasingly worse with additional mileage. It is believed that the increase in noise is due to the to increased travel in the brake pads after shifting directions. This is thought due to either warping or distortion of the caliper brackets.
