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 #5

Odyssey EX V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 83,000 miles


When I press the switch to roll down the front passenger window, it fell into the slot today. After reading some comments about it, it sounds like I need to replace my window regulator. I searched on EBay and found the replacement parts. I have a hard time removing the panel. Can anyone help me with it?

Odyssey LX

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles

The motor on our rear windows has gone out. Found out that the replacement for the motor is about $300 plus labor. Sounds like this is a chronic problem. I have heard that replacement parts can be purchased on ebay or the junk yard. It is a great inconvenience as my children do not get any fresh air. I'm very disappointed with this vehicle. We went with a premier vehicle and have had nothing but problems.

Odyssey EX V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,000 miles

Our rear window motors (both left and right) have burned out 3 times. Cost to replace each motor is about $250 (parts and labor). I checked on EBAY, and the motors cost about $75. They are fairly easy to replace...

But, the main thing is that this is a problem in Odyssey (both motors burned out 3 times in 6 years!)

Odyssey EX-L 6 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 98,000 miles

One back window stopped working altogether and the other struggles. Seems that both motors are dying or are dead. We haven't had them fixed yet - we leave them closed. Just another in a long list of very unexpected problems with this vehicle. Very unhappy with Honda in general. Every time we bring it in for service, it seems like it's a minimum of $ 300. We paid premium dollar for the Honda expecting much higher quality. THIS HONDA SUCKS! Don't forget the timing belt replacement at 105000 miles at $ 750 bucks!!!
