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 #1

Jul 102010


  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles


Dealer has replaced bracket, belt, tensioner pulley THREE times, the last time about 10 days ago. Bracket is already cracked again and squealing. Dealer reports that Honda admits that the problem is common and involves the mounting holes being incorrectly created.

Currently working with dealer, they are hinting around that the only fix may be replacing the engine block which would run over $6500! (I'm not even sure the car is worth that as a trade in)

So they sell me a car that was made wrong and now I'm the one they want to pay to correct the problem? Makes me wonder why they replaced it all those times before coming to this conclusion. I shouldn't have to pay for their quality mistake. If I end up replacing the car, pretty sure I wouldn't be able to buy Honda again....
