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.

My Odyssey was involved in a front collision at 45 miles per hour. T-boned another vehicle when they pulled out in front of the Odyssey. Neither front air bags deployed. I had just in the past few months had the air bags replaced due to the recall. My mother who was driving received neck, shoulder and back whiplash and a seat belt burn. The passenger in the other vehicle broke his hip and femur and went into surgery yesterday. Why did the airbags not deploy?

According to the safety recall notice, I was to make an appointment to have my driver's airbag replaced immediately. It has now been 3 months since I called to make an appointment and I have yet to hear about scheduling me in. Its the only vehicle available to me so I have no choice but to drive it...always concerned that I may get into an accident and have the airbag malfunction. What gives?
