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.

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • 65,000 miles
While casually accelerating from a stop, the transmission will start shuttering somewhere between 15 and 35 miles per hour. In order to get the transmission to stop shuttering, I must press down harder on the accelerator to get the van to shift to a higher gear.

Rebuild transmission due to worn out differential bearings that caused the transmission fluids to break the axel seal and leak a lot of fluid which could of destroyed transmission all together.

I have a 2005 Honda Odyssey exl and it has a severe vibration when operating in the eco mode. Research online shows the known cause is premature failure of the rear engine mount. There are literally thousands of forums and complaints for the identical problem. Honda has not issued a recall and the repair cost is $650.

Odyssey

  • 97,000 miles
The contact owns a 2005 Honda Odyssey. The contact stated that the vehicle began exhibiting unusual vibrations while driving at approximate speeds of 35-40 mph. The vehicle was taken to a local transmission shop where the contact was informed that the drive train needed to be replaced. The contact called the manufacturer and was informed that there was no longer an active warranty on the vehicle. The vehicle had not been repaired at the time of the complaint. The failure mileage was approximately 97,000. Updated 11/03/10.

I am a member of the 05' Honda Odyssey growling club. I started having a vibration - growling noise in the driveline @ 60 to 70 mph and @ 2000 RPM. This started 7 months after ownership and 9900 miles later. I have also noticed on the forums that may other complaints on this same item - I have taken into shop three times and both dealerships state that all the noises are normal. Sound appears to get louder - is that normal??
