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.

2005 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

problem #2

My 2005 Honda Odyssey van did not stop while I was braking during a stop at a traffic light. The brakes got to the floor and I hit the car in front of me causing a minor traffic accident. I have not taken it to the dealer yet but I have scheduled an appt. I was found "at-fault" and the vehicle I hit received compensation for collision. The owner of the vehicle also claim he was injured.

I purchased a new 2005 Honda Odyssey ex-L in December 2004, and I have experienced multiple incidents in which the brakes make a very loud grinding noise with medium hard braking. The grinding has not resulted in any apparent loss of braking ability or loss of control however this is a concern to me since I drive with a 5 year old in my care. I took the Odyssey to the service center in may O5 for this issue and they replaced the brake pads and resurfaced the rotors. Again this month (July) I noticed the problem again, I took it in two days ago and Honda refuses to fix the problem saying that I have to wait until September to have the issue resolved. They tell us that they won't have the parts in until then. I feel that they are avoiding the fixing the problem as to avoid the lemon law since this is their second time fixing this problem. I have brought the vehicle in for several other issues before this such as broken cd player....slow draining of battery, and problems with dvd and vehicle interior. Overall I am very concererned when my car is having problems with the brakes and this company refuses to fix the problem.....I am scared to drive this vehicle but do not have the money for a rental until September.
