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

Nov 172006

(reported on)

Odyssey EX V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 42,000 miles


This has happened since day 1, which is why I entered my mileage as 100. I currently have about 42,000 miles, and it is still happening. I never brought it to the dealer because I assumed that it was just a sloshing sound within the full fuel tank. I must have guessed correctly (I hope!)

problem #2

Dec 072003

(reported on)

Odyssey EX

  • 6,000 miles

Loud thunking sound from rear under vehicle. Only happens with full to half tank of gas. Was told by dealer that this is characteristic of SOME Odyssey's. The sound is a result from sloshing fuel in tank and too bad for me that mine does it. They will not fix this most annoying problem. I already own a 98 Accord and a 03 Civic. You bet I will NEVER buy another Honda again!
