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 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

My 2002 Honda Odyssey has some features I was not told about. Every time you step on the brakes in a new direction, forward or reverse you hear a loud clunking sound as the brakes engage the rotors. I believe this is a hazard as well as an annoyance. I don't believe the brakes are engaging as soon as you step on the peddle. Their P.R. spin says they manufacturer room for heat expansion in the brake pads. I have never ever had a vehicle that exhibits this problem. The second problem is their noisy gas tank sloshing that is very prominent in the vehicle. This one is more of an annoyance.
