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.

2005 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

problem #1

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 500 miles


Brake and transmission failure of Honda Odyssey. We leased a 2005 Honda Odyssey from Honda West in las vegas on the 21st of June 2005. This is 2005 model. The VIN # is: [xxx] in a week, we found a defective brake that was causing a significant problem to stop the car. I immediately informed the dealer and it appeared they did not pay that much attention. I myself was very confused as I was under the impression that Honda makes one of the safest cars in the world. My wife is the primary driver and she is a 1st year resident at the university medical center, las vegas, nv. After working she was driving the car to home and she tried to stop the car at red light and the car did not stop. She ran red light and by the grace of god a disastrous accident was avoided. This is a matter of life and death. So, she went to the dealer immediately and they were not polite and were not in a position to look into the problem. However, she forced them to look into it and after two days of investigation they found that the brake was not installed properly at the manufacturing plant. The transmission also has the similar kind of problem, when trying to accelerate will not accelerate but when trying to push the brake will accelerate. We have already informed american Honda and unfortunately they will not listen.the car is still with the dealer. As a responsible citizen of the country I feel obligated to let you know the safety issue of Honda. It is ironic that the american car manufacturers easily admit their safety problem whereas the Japanese makers will not admit such because of business issue. My question is: Which one should come first the safety of the citizens or the money? I will highly appreciate that you look into this matter as soon as possible to prevent a disastrous accident else where in the country. I hope that no one has to either die or injured before the investigation starts. Sincerely, [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6)
