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 #1

My car is a Honda Odyssey touring 2006. I remotely opened the tailgate and stepped under it to put up the third row seat. The tailgate unexpectedly began to lower and hit me in the head pretty hard. I then tried again thinking it was an error and was almost hit again. The third time I tried to stop the door from going down but could not. Now the tailgate will not remain open and I can no longer safely get access to my children's things in the back of the van. It was scary and unnerving to me when this happened because I could not stop the tailgate from going down. There was no safety for me to stop it.
