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.

problem #2

Nov 112007

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 67,800 miles


The transmission on my 2003 Honda Odyssey failed at 67,800 miles with no warning and no prior issues. This transmission has a history of premature failure and this one realized its prophecy.

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 63,734 miles
There had been a few clunking noises on 3-4 occasions my wife was driving the Odyssey when the transmission locked up Honda refused any assistance since the shop had taken the transmission apart even though the parts were clearly defective. I had the transmission repaired at the local shop at a cost of $3045.71.
