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.

2003 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

problem #3

  • Automatic transmission

When the brakes were applied the pedal would descend to the floor with poor braking response. The probable cause of the problem was isolated to having the (ABS) modulator, the master cylinder and the brake booster replaced. The consumer was concerned of the extent of parts replaced with such low mileage.
