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.

My 2006 Honda Odyssey has a problem with the brake feeling 'soft'. I have to press the brake almost to the floor to stop the car. This is similar to the recall for the same model from 2007 to 2008. However, dealership will not fix this issue because our car is from 2006 model year.

I was driving down a hill and had to stop suddenly and it took my van about 6-8 feet to come to a complete stop. I had to apply pressure with both feet. I had to turn the wheel to the left to avoid rear-ending a truck. This is the second time that this has happened with this van while going down hill. The first time, in 2008, resulted in a rear-end collision. The first time it happened I did not realize that there was something wrong with my brakes. The second time, I had to turn my steering wheel again the same way to avoid an accident. It seems the brakes don't catch when going down a hill and need to come to a quick stop.
