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.

I have found 1000+ people with this exact same problem and yet cannot find that Honda has done anything about it. The audio for the wireless dvd input stops after 10 - 20 minutes of watching a dvd. It just starts to buzz and fails to work. I have found threads where some Honda dealerships are not charging for the fix while others are. The audio works on the wireless headphones on all other inputs (am/fm, cd, aux) just not dvd.

I have a 2006 Honda Odyssey and on a recent trip to California my air conditioner stopped working. I brought it into my local dealership to have it checked out and was told at the time that if it was struck by a rock it would not be covered under warranty. About an hour later the service technician contacted me to tell me that sure enough a rock has hit my A/C condenser and it would cost $700 to fix it because it is not covered under warranty or extended warranty. The service technician also stated that this has been happening quite often. I decide to google my A/C condenser and was not surprised to find countless forums with hundreds of people all stating the exact same story complete with the same exact comments from the technicians. My suspicions raised, this begins to sound like a rehearsed story of "a rock has hit your ac condenser putting a hole in it". it would appear that Honda neglected to include a simple grill in the area beneath the license plate frame that would have prevented this from occurring. The stock grill has too much space so debris are able to get in. This should be recalled by Honda and fixed since it's their mistake.

I have a 2006 Honda Odyssey LX minivan. The ac stopped working. Twice. Within warranty time/mileage. The dealer told me that the ac condenser was damaged by stone, causing leakage of cfc. I called Honda, they claimed that they have nothing to do with it. Even the front grille they installed in their newer models are "for any number of reasons, not necessarily to fix this design flaw". cfc kills ozone layer. I feel bad my van dumped two tanks of cfc into the (already badly polluted) atmosphere. Honda's bad design causes big time pollution, and it is a problem that can be fixed with a tiny cost added to the vehicle. Honda cuts corners, and this is a bad one. It causes consumers so much, because Honda wants to save a couple of bucks. Other car makers may have the same issue - they do not cover fragile part in the vehicle properly.

I am unaware of specific events which led to this occurrence. At the first sign of warm weather, I attempted to use the air conditioner; it would only blow warm. We took the car to the dealer on 3/17/08, and were told something had hit the condenser and rendered it inoperable. This dealer quoted $773 to repair, and we declined. We took the car to another dealer on 4/4/08, and were told the same thing. The cost to repair was $829. An online search revealed many other owners have experienced the same problem; this is obviously a design defect which should be covered by Honda.

The A/C started blowing hot air on 6/10/07. The dealer informed us there would be a $195 inspection fee before repairs were started. We were informed a rock hit the condenser, and repairs would not be under warranty. We were shown no evidence of the damage. The dealer implied this was a rare problem, yet insisted that american Honda would not cover any part of the response, as the dealer had dealt with them on this issue in the past. Not wanting to waste the $195 inspection fee, I gave the go ahead to what I found out later was an over-priced $840 repair. This is an obvious design flaw, one that american Honda told me was addressed in the 2008 model redesign. I am pursuing this issue with the attorney general's office.

The contact owns a 2006 Honda Odyssey. While driving 75 mph on a windy day, the contact heard a rattling noise. The noise intensified to a thumping sound and the contact pulled off the road. He discovered that the rear spoiler was hanging from the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who stated that the hooks failed and the spoiler could not be defective. The current mileage is 12,780 and failure mileage was 12,400.

Concerned with advertisement for the Honda odyessy. Commercial shows two children in a the van watching a dvd. Van is parked in the driveway in apparent warm months as depicted by the clothes worn by the actors and appearence of leaves on trees, flowers, etc. Commercial highlights the features of the vehicle, but it also shows a parent shutting the vehicle's doors with the kids in the vehicle watching the video. This could be misleading to some kids encouraging them to play in a vehicle. Kids don't think about the dangers of heat in vehicles.
