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.

2004 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 252004

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,000 miles


While applying pressure on the brake pedal to reduce the speed because the traffic was slowing down vehicle in front of me stopped abruptly. I applied more and more pressure on the brakes, and nothing happened. Vehicle was not stopping any faster. I did not pump the brakes since Odyssey has ABS and they did not kick in though I applied a lot of pressure on the brakes. I collided with the vehicle in front of me and airbags did not deploy. Prior to this incident I was able to stop the car faster.
