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

Odyssey LX

  • Automatic transmission

I am annoyed at the fact that Honda is supposed to be a good car to drive, but while driving when it wants to my car decideds to shutt off on me while on the free way. This has happend more than once. Awhile back while I was on the SF bay bridge with my kids. Scared because of the fast paced traffic and no room to pull over thank god when it did I was so close to space that was available. I can't imagine the outcome if I didn't make it. The engine light is on and having it taken in to do the recall on the air bags is annoying as well. I don't understand why there seems to be always something coming up on them yet. I am very discouraged about this whole situation and want a car that will be safe and benefit me and my large family. My main concern is for the saftey of my kids. Please do something about it and stop sending cars out that end up having some problems later on. Those problems should be simple and not added problems. Now my passanger window won't open, nor the back windows for my kids to get fresh air. If it's not one thing it always seems to be another. I am very irratated about this whole situation!

Hope you'll listen to a Mom that wants to put safety first. Now on to trying to schedule an appointment and trying to bring in more money to get these things fix that will end up costing me an arm and a leg. This is coming from a family of 7 and only having a part time job, less than 29 hrs a week if even that. Trying to fit it in the budget will deffiently be a struggle.

Ok Rant over now just PISSED!
