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 transmission problem. At 20,000 miles, the transmission has started to slip. Also, it rolls backwards when it is in drive in our driveway. Our driveway is not steep. It did not do that when we first got it. The dealer said that was normal. We almost slammed into a car that was parked in front of us on a hill. We were facing downward. I put the van in reverse, then I took my foot off the brake to make some room so I could get around the car parked in front of us. The van rolled forward and I had just enough time to avoid causing major damage. I had to find the owner of the car in front so he could move out of the way so I could get out of there.

Consumer complained about two problems. The first problem involved the sliding door located on the right side which did not close when it was opened. Took vehicle to dealership six times. However, problem recurred on July 19, 2005, and the dealership told him to bring the vehicle back. Consumer has repeatedly been told by the dealership that there was no problem. Dealership replaced some parts, but consumer saw no improvement. He was concerned about the door malfunctioning when opened. What if it would malfunction when it was closed and it opened while driving. The second problem involved transmission. He received a recall notice that was dated spring/summer 2004. He took the vehicle for service and they said there was no problem. Transmission hesitated while driving.

My 2004 Honda Odyssey has lurched and loss forward power/motion for just a few seconds while driving normally at speed between 40-60 mph. This has happened during the first 7500 miles. Cruise control was not on during these events. I have checked recalls and other owners and found similar comments. This could cause an accident if passing or additional power is needed while driving up incline. Have had fuel pump recall item corrected. Please investigate!

Multiple failures. Brakes problem, transmission, rough idle & engine surging, steering column controls and others. The automatic door would not open or close, the transmission did not shift properly and the dealer was unable to duplicate the problem. The brake pedal shuttered, the brakes would catch without being applied. The consumer was told the steering column control switch had a short, however the next day the horn honked and there was an odd noise in the steering column and the interior lights flashed multiple times.

2004 Honda Odyssey manufacturing defect. The vehicle was on and the consumer had to children inside it. The consumer put the vehicle in park and exited the vehicle to retrieved something. When she returned and attempted to get into her car it began to roll backwards down the driveway. The vehicle crossed the road before it came to an abrupt stop on the curd. The dealer was contacted and explained that the gears may have somehow become stuck between park and reverse and then popped into reverse. The consumer contacted the manufacturer requesting a new vehicle and an investigation.

When shifting up from a lower gear (from 1st to 2nd) most notably at low speeds, around 20 to 25 mph, the engine feels like it is revving higher than normal before shifting into the next gear. When it does shift, it shifts hard and makes a clanking noise. It feels as though the transmission is sticking, preventing it from changing gears in a normal fashion. I have not noticed it occurring at any specific time, it seems to happen at random intervals when driving at lower speeds. I have taken the van in for inspection and the technician could not recreate this problem. Took van on July 08, contacted Honda, the problem still has yet to be resolved. This is one of six problems I had to take the van in for. After having the van for two weeks, only two non-mechanical problems were partially resolved and one non-mechanical problem was resolved completely.

2004 Honda Odyssey lurched backwards while in idle then accelerated out of the garage. The consumer contacted the dealership who told the consumer their best guess was that the gear was stuck between park and reverse and eventually popped into reverse.

Van shakes horribly after reaching 60 mph and is really bad from around 70 mph. Taken it in at least 3 times for the same thing and it is still not fixed. They changed out tires and balanced but to no avail.
