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

  • 34,000 miles


I have a 2005 Honda Odyssey with 34,000 miles on it. The left rear shock is blown and needs replaced. A vehicle with such low mileage should not have a blown shock. The power steering has problems as well. After the van has been running for 15-20 minutes the power steering makes loud noise during turns and when parking, the power steering becomes very difficult to turn. I have contacted Honda dealer and they are not willing to cover the costs for either repair since I'm past the 36,000 mile or 3years warranty period. From what I have researched, the steering issue is a big problem. Why hasn't this been a recall issue!!!! it's very dangerous to continue having this problem.

Very loud pusating sound when rear windows open. It vibrates and is so loud I thought I had a flat tire. My ears and my childrens ears hurt. It occurs when we are driving 35-40 mph.
