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.

Took car in for recall. On pickup of car noticed SRS light illuminated. Dealer will not fix light unless I pay money. But light came on after "fixing" airbag recall.

Problem: SRS light has been on since 11/07/10. At initial visit to Honda dealer on 11/11/10, problem diagnosed as faulty seat belt buckle. Honda stated part on back order until 11/24/10. Now Honda says part on back order until approximately 12/09/10. With SRS light on it is questionable as to whether air bags will deploy in a crash.

The consumer believes the positioning of the seat belt in the middle seat of the back row, which comes down from the ceiling to buckle into the seat, is unsafe and uncomfortable. The seat belt comes down, across on the torso and usually across the neck.
