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.

CarComplaints.com Notes: The entire 2nd generation Odyssey (1999-2004) is just one giant transmission problem waiting to happen.

Wife driving her Honda Odyssey was hit head on. She wazs traveling about 30 mph and the other car about 10 mph. Air bags did not go off in a head on collission. We have brought the car in about 5 times to get the air bags checked out because the service light came on. Twice they had to replace components of the air bag system. Basically in the 2 1/2 years we had the 2002 Honda Odyssey, we have had to bring it in for air bag service. They claim (and have admitted) that cell phones cause interference with the air bag system. They said that since not enough people have complained, no recall is done yet. My wife was hurt in the accident and I believe that if the air bags went off, she may have been less injured. A recall should be done about this!
