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

Apr 102004

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 19,350 miles


Un-inteded acclerate while cruise control is on during low speed. I notice if the cruise control is on, even the cruise speed is not set, during the wait of traffic light the throttle will acclerate. I need applied extra force on the break-pedal to restraint the van move forward. I has been cautious on this, no accident been cause because of this. But Honda should exam their electronic throttle control program.
