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 #3

Nov 122013

Odyssey LX

  • Automatic transmission
  • 129,000 miles


I've had to fix this problem for the second time now for my Odyssey and it really bites! Total for both repairs is about over $800 more closer to $900 I'd say! This second time around I told the repair people isn't there a recall for this problem? I mean really, when I come in twice for the same issue and all they can tell me is no we haven't heard anything about it. I makes me wish at the time I was shopping for mini-vans I had spent the extra $3000. for a Toyota Mini-van so I could've had the roll down middle windows!

Odyssey LX

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35,000 miles

This occurred around 2012 as far I can remember. I had to take it to the dealership to get my vent windows fixed. I was not happy in finding out that it was going to cost me almost $500 to get this problem fixed. After getting it fixed about 3 years later I had to get it fixed again and of course the price had went up as well! I thought Honda's were supposed to be really dependable! To be honest I'm not 100% on the actual years but I know it was a three year gap before I had to get the repair done again!!!!
