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

Odyssey 6-cyl

Passenger air bag is turning off frequently. There is always a strong crack when you press the brake. There is a decoloring passenger air bag place. It eats gas if you turn on the back air conditioner. The passenger console had a big vibration. The Odyssey has gone to the dealer more than four times for the same reason but it's never fixed. They said those claims are normal for a model 2004.

1month ago I opened the passenger side automatic door on my 2004 Honda Odyssey and it pinned a publix bagger and shopping cart between my vehicle and another vechile. The door did not stop and continiued to Ram itself open. Thankfully, the bagger was not injured, but the my vehicle has several significant dents and scrapes. In Dec. 2004, we had taken the van in for door problems; not shutting properly, stopping during closing for no reason etc. I'm very concerned about the door's safety features, especially regarding my 2 Y/O. the dealership 12/04 & 7/25/05, states that no abnormalities were found. I'm very concerned and will seek legal advice.
