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.

Transmission overheats and stops working completely. Have to change fluid about every 750 miles to keep it moving somewhat

The drive (D) light on the gear shift started blinking while I was driving. I pulled over and shifted to park, but the light continued to blink. I turned off the engine, and when I turned it back on the blinking had stopped. American Honda has told me that this may be related to a 2004 transmission-related recall, and that if so Honda will pay for the repairs. However, it must be diagnosed by a dealer, and Honda dealers charge a $115 diagnostic fee. Both the dealer and american Honda have told me they cannot waive the fee. However, I feel that the fee should be waived as this is a safety issue, and the only purpose of the diagnostic test is to determine whether Honda will pay for the repairs. If they will not pay for the repairs, we do not intend to have the repairs done.

There was no incident. My complaint is about the paint peeling significantly on my navy blue minivan. Got an estimate for out of pocket repainting and was quoted $800 just for the hood. Paint is peeling in more places. Decided to check online to see if this was a common occurrence and it is. I have owned the van for over 9 years and never received any recall or reimbursement for paint peeling problem.

Received news from a local Honda dealership that all 4 engine mounts were broken for a cost of $925. When looking for parts happen to see the amount of chatter regarding engine mounts on several model years of the Odyssey. Lesson learned... perhaps check this site before buying any vehicle. Seems Honda should cover some of the cost at least.
