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

Jan 102007

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 6,000 miles


I was advised when I first had the oil changed (6/06) in my 2006 Honda Odyssey (purchased 10/05) that there was apparently an oil leak from the engine. I then took the van to the Honda dealer in springfield, il. Where I purchased it, and I was told the problem was with the oil pan seal. This seal was then changed. When the oil was again changed in late December, '06, there again was an oil leak noted from the engine. After some testing, the Honda dealer first said he would have to remove the transmission to identify the source of the leak. They thought it would take about a day or so to repair. The next day, I was told he would have to order a "part" which would take about a week to receive. After complaining to Honda usa, I was told that the problem was a cracked engine block and that they would have to replace/repair the engine with a new "short block" from Honda. The dealer was only willing to let me use a Honda civic as a "loaner" for my van, but after further complaints to Honda usa, they arranged for me to get a rented van from enterprise. They have also agreed to give me a six year extended warranty for the vehicle. As of this day, I am awaiting the repair/return of my Odyssey.
