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.

problem #2

Jan 302007

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 17,000 miles


I own a 2005 Honda Odyssey touring with Michelin pax run flat tires. I was recently informed by Honda service that my tires needed to be replaced (were worn to 4/32nds) at only 17K miles and at a cost of $300+ per tire. Additionally, even to patch the tire with a small nail puncture would cost $90+. I feel that the premature wear on these tires is a defect and the owners of this vehicle are being faced with frequent and costly replacement of these defective tires and/or safety issues with worn tires.

Premature tire wear. Honda Odyssey touring has Michelin pax tire system designated as a high-end premium feature safety system. These tires wear out in 23000 miles, which is well below standard tires offered on other Honda Odyssey packages. In addition, the pax system is a proprietary design offered only by one tire manufacturer, is not compatible with standard wheels, and requires dealer/tire service garages to have unique expensive mounting equipment. Few tire dealers support pax. Example: Only one dealer in san diego supports pax. For travelers on the road who experience a failure, it will be difficult or impossible to locate a near by replacement. The Odyssey touring does not come with a spare tire, so the max run-flat distance of 100 mi may not be enough to reach tire store. The Honda sales representatives do not offer any of this information to prospective customers at the time of sale. The Honda Odyssey tour model can not be retrofitted with standard tires due to vehicle's computer system settings.
