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 #1

Nov 072006

(reported on)

Odyssey LX 3.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 34,000 miles


This Odyssey is over 3 years old but less than 36,000 miles so in the gray area for the warranty. 3 months ago had to have the steering rack replaced, Honda covered this with a $100 deductible. My suspicion is that they screwed up installation of the towing package the year before. One month ago we had oily leaks so took it in expecting the transmission. Maybe Honda would cover it, maybe not but if not it's minimum $1000, maximum $4-5k. We took the risk, cracked engine block, factory defect. Honda is covering the cost of the new engine but will not warranty the new engine and would not pay for a loaner car. The dealer said this is why we were given the opportunity to buy an extended warranty. I'm done with Honda and this dealer.
