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 Odyssey had a increase in braking distance. ***** the vehicle would stop far short of the consumers intended stop. While driving 70 mph, the vehicle would produce a low frequency noise while in low gear.

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 125 miles
The contact owns a 2005 Honda Odyssey. The vehicle was purchased on July 25, 2005. He stated that with only 750 miles on the vehicle the automatic transmission needed to be replaced. Three people from the dealership did an investigation, two people confirmed the failure and one did not. The vehicle was making a sound while driving at 70 mph, it like a very loud humming noise. He heard the noise the day before the vehicle was taken to the dealership at 40 mph, and this was the first time he had heard the noise at a low speed. It occurred more traveling up or down a hill or when you put stress on the engine. The dealership did some additional testing and did not hear the noise the first time. They did not hear it the second time. The third time they did hear the noise. After the additional testing they found that the transmission needed to be replaced. There was one other complaints filed with the NHTSA on the automatic transmission. Initially, this vehicle would do this sound more often at higher speeds. But sometimes it occurred at lower speeds as well.
