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.

2006 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

problem #4

Sep 242007

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 32,000 miles


Our Honda Odyssey is equipped with automatic sliding doors. My 3 year old daughter got her fingers caught in the rear part of the slider and the door closed all the way. It appears there are no safety features as we thought in the rear part of the door. This to me seems to be a design flaw.

  • Automatic transmission

The contact owns a 2006 Honda Odyssey ex. The contact stated that the automatic passenger side sliding door closed on her child's hand on two occasions. The door usesd a sensor when opening, but the sensor failed when closing the door. The child sustained finger and hand injuries. The contact has photos. The current mileage is 40,000, and failure mileage was 35,000. There is no sensor on the back half of the door. Update 07/03/07.

problem #2

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120 miles
: the contact stated that the shortness of the steering column creates fatigue while driving 65 mph for prolonged hours on normal road conditions. The vehicle's doors cannot open without pressing the unlock button first which creates a delay in case of emergency conditions. The vehicle's doors will not lock if one of the doors are not closed. The contact expressed that the rear windshield wiper only works intermittently which creates a rear vision problem.

If side sliding doors are closed electrically they can not be opened unless the transmission is in "park" or "neutral with brake pedal depressed". if an accident occurs where the driver is incapacitated and cannot move the shift lever to the park or neutral position, the doors cannot be opened manually since they are held closed by the electrical assembly which operates them. Even if the driver is not incapacitated he/she must have the presence of mind to move the shift lever to the appropriate position before the sliding doors can be opened. To not have a manual door over ride prevents the rear passengers from emergency egress! I consider this a serious safety defect and should either be corrected or a warning should be plainly visible to the driver to "disable the electrical door system if passengers are in the rear seats".
