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 #2

Jul 052013

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • 186,000 miles


Terrible wet traction in rain and snow. Could not get vehicle to go without a push in 1.5 inches of snow on flat, gravel driveway. From a stop, tires spin on wet roads. Vehicle veers sideways as tires try to grip. Have nearly been hit pulling into traffic expecting vehicle to go and tires spin out on wet roads.

Own 2004 Honda Odyssey, original owner, purchased new, 130,000 miles. Check engine and traction control systems lights illuminated last Wednesday. I believe I am one of many Odyssey owners with bad transmissions. Approximately $3500 to fix it.
