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. The headlights running on dim on hilly county type roads make no light above about 10 feet. When going down an incline as the van is tilted forward the lights shine directly into the road with no sign of light forward to see the road ahead. Contacted the dealer and Honda they say this is normal.

Driving a 2005 Honda Odyssey, down a 2-lane country road at night in November, a deer was in the field. I slowed down because I did not know what the deer would do and there was another car that was going to pass me coming the other direction. When the deer saw my headlights, he ran into the passenger side breaking the headlight and denting the panel above the tire. No air bags deployed. I got out to check the damage and realized the van was still drivable. I put on my hazard lights and drove slowly less than 25 miles per hour. I than saw flames coming from the hood on the passenger side near the broken headlight. I pulled off the road onto the grass, turned off the car, got out and called 911. By the time the fire department came, the van was engulfed in flames under the hood and the flames were hitting the grass. The passenger side tire popped under the heat of the flames. The insurance company deemed the van a total loss. Information from insurance company said the computer behind the halogen light was the cause of the fire.
