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

Jan 042007

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles


- while driving a 2003 Honda Odyssey at a speed of 50-55 mph on the highway, the vehicle briefly shifted into reverse prior to going into the next gear. The contact brought the vehicle to a dealership that same night of the incident on 01/04/06, and they stated that the transmission had failed and needed to replace. The contact is concern because in April of 2006 he brought the vehicle into his local dealership for NHTSA campaign id number : 04V176000( power train: Automatic transmission), and he feels that the dealership didn't inspect the vehicle properly to identify if any of the transmission gears were experiencing discoloration due to overheating.
