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

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

After much research on minivan safety, we purchased a 2005 Honda oddysey in January of 2005. Within months, we noticed a grinding noise when braking hard or coming to a quick stop. Unfortunately, this comes and goes and has not been able to be duplicated for the service department. We have still complained about this and still nothing has been done to attempt to try and correct the problem. We are currently looking at another brand (our second choice of minivan) which should have been our first choice.

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Multiple issues and incidents. Overall significant cooling system design flaws combined with tow package install mistakes leave the cooling lines un-secure and unprotected. 2 ac line punctures, 5 power steering grinding repair attempts to no avail.
