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.

Consumer states while driving, sometimes all the indicator dash lights came on. The consumer was told by the mechanic, since they were unable to duplicate the problem, they could not repair the vehicle. Then she states the same thing happened again and she took the vehicle to the dealer, this time she states they told her that the problem was her alternator, which they replaced. Then she states on 4/16/04, while she was driving all the indicator lights came on again, but this time she heard a funny noise. She states that her spouse, then got out of the vehicle and lifted the hood. There he found that the serpertine belt had come completely off.
