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

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 500 miles


Bought the Honda in May 2004. Noticed a slight hesitation at times when engine was not warmed up. I complained about it in my new car survey form and each time it was serviced. On 8-5-05 they replaced egr valve, as it sometimes would cause this failure. On 2-5-07 it totally quit as I was starting a turn into pep boys parking lot, if anyone would have been coming out I would have run into them as I had no steering nor brakes. Took it into the dealer and said I wanted it fixed before I would have an accident. I had mentioned something about the lemon law and they said I would have to contact Honda of America, which I did. End result was dealer took car for three days in March 2007. They tested it but could not make it fail so nothing was done. Both Honda of America and the dealer gave me their final comment: If they can't see a failure there is nothing they can do for it.
