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.

2003 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

problem #6

  • 142,615 miles


I purchased four Goodyear assurance touring P225/60 R16 97T tires at sam's club in March 2011. These were installed on 2003 Honda Odyssey LX. Vehicle, including tires, were well maintained; tires were balanced, rotated periodically and monitored biweekly for the correct level of air pressure. The wheels were aligned. The van is non-commercial; only family / personal use. After 26 months and 27900 miles, one of the tires failed unexpectedly while in use. There were no warning signs of impending failure. Passenger side rear tire failed by blow-out at 65 mph. Vehicle including tires had been subjected to state safety inspection 16 days before the incident and had passed. Nothing was noted about the condition of the tires on the occasion of the state inspection. The tires had been visually inspected by driver at the last fuel stop before the incident with nothing out of the ordinary observed.

Today on I77-N close to charlotte, my rear tire was shredded to pieces and the vehicle had to be pulled over completely to the ramp. I had the vehicle on spare tire and got a brand new one put on. The tire that got busted was a Michelin 60R16 fitted at costco in winston salem.

Odyssey 6-cyl

My vehicle, a 2003 Honda Odyssey, is completely unsafe in snow/ice, no matter how little snow or ice. Less than 2 years old, it has only 23,000 miles and all original manufacturer equipment and tires. All regular maintenance has been done at the Honda dealer where it was purchased. Vehicle lacks traction in snow or ice, wheels spinning out of control (whether traction control system is on or off). Vehicle cannot go up slightest incline. Cannot stop normally in any kind of snow or ice, skidding past destination (taking me through a red light with children in back seats). A huge safety concern / risk. Both manufacturer and dealer refuse to address the problem saying that ABS and other equipment is working properly. Dealer alleges problem is tires. Given low mileage and factory original tires, this does not make sense to me. Neither is willing to do anything. This vehicle is the most unsafe vehicle that I've ever had. To further clarify, I very much like Honda - so much so that I also own a civic. However, my civic handles snow extremely well, while the Odyssey is very, very dangerous.
