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

The steel wheel on driver side front was found to have a major crack in it. Upon examination by Honda of westport, fetzer tire and hank may it is their conclusion that the wheel has structural issues that could lead to a catastrophic accident. The wheel was purchased at hank may in stamford ct., who got the wheels from wheel fix it in freeport long island ( they refused to acknowledge any issue or responsibility re: The wheel. In addition, these wheels I have learned....never did 'fit' the Odyssey. They were machine lathed poorly and bounced on the hub spokes, causing vibration. Again, wheel fix it denies any issue with the quality of the product. I have photo's of the cracked wheel which I have taken off the car, of course.

When vehicle shifts from 2nd to 3rd, there is a delay(grind). A and B pillars are week and produce a whistling noise starting at 35 mph. The rear bench (the bigger part of the split bench) will not latch down to the floor. Pax run flat tires are deflating with no age or puncture related problems. All of these are safety hazards. Rear lift gate struts failed and will not lift up rear door and can cause the door to crash down.

Please tell Honda not to sell / manufacture defective wheel locks. My Honda dealer sold be a Honda Odyssey van (brand new) with wheel locks. The wheel locks were manufactured by Honda. The wheel locks have got stuck in the tire and impossible to take out. This became a safety issue as when the tire blew out, I and 3 different tow companies could not remove the wheel lock. The car had to be towed in to the dealer.

2005 Honda Odyssey ex-L. both rear wheel bearings/hubs needed to be replaced. Started making rumbling noise at about 63,000 miles; replaced at 69,000 miles. Vehicle is used for light duty - no trailoring or heavy loads.

The Michelin pax tire system: Honda used this pax system on touring versions of the Odyssey mini van in 2005 (and beyond but mine is a 2005). These tires wear extremely fast and unevenly. They are either an extremely poor design or are defective. Replacements can only be found at Honda dealers. This is mostly an annoyance and ends up costing the owner thousands of dollars more over the life of the vehicle. However, it may lead to safety issues in the event the average owner doesn't think to check their tires as frequently at a rate that would catch a problem.
