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

Jun 062009

Odyssey EX-L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 98,000 miles


Transmission shop owner passed the buck and blamed a new worker for putting too much fluid in when installing our rebuilt transmission back in March 2009. This is our only family car that can seat all 5 of us so we had to ask friends to help take our car in to the shop. Our kids were 4, 2.5 and 5 weeks when this happened. Car ran well after this until April 2011 when the transmission died completely on our way to Disney in Orlando. It left us stranded in Ocala, FL with no options. What a stinking lemon!
