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 #2

Jul 172013

Odyssey EX 3.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 170,000 miles


Was bad enough that the AC compressor went out, now you can't open the passenger window.

It's Memphis, TN. Hot doesn't cover it.

While driving to Little Rock, the passenger door glass suddenly dropped into the door. Had to fish it out and immobilize it in the closed position with bailing wire from inside the door. The window is now "permanently" closed.

I love this van so much. NOT.

problem #1

Dec 282002


  • Automatic transmission
  • 100 miles

When the temperature would go below -5 C (23 Fahrenheit) the electrical windows would freeze, making it impossible to roll down the windows. Solution ; keep driving until the car warms up (15 minutes).
