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.

2003 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

problem #1

I can't open the rear passenger side door on my '03 Odyssey - with or without the remote opener or pulling on the handle - inside or outside. Strange thing occurs after the car cools down (it's been a hot summer) - then everything works like it should. Let it heat up and the thing goes into "no go" mode! The other rear door hasn't been affected - yet. Dealer says he's never heard of such a problem and I can't imagine how much it will cost to fix. Anyone have an easy fix??

Update from Sep 28, 2010: Turns out the problem had nothing to do with temperature - or electrical - it was that the roller assembly was shot. Had the dealer repair and all was well. Exactly 2 days later I had problems closing the driver's side rear door - made a very loud metallic sound and it turns out the roller assmebly on that side had gone as well! I bought the part for about $80 and got some coaching from a tech at the dealer and did the job myself. Involved taking off the interior panel, rear light and the small body panel that covers the door track. The door has to be supported by something or someone - suggest someone since it is only attached to the vehicle by the roller assembly and the bottom support - the upper guide will pop out of the track if given the opportunity.
