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.

I wan on vacation 500 miles away from home. Driving the 2006 Honda Odyssey as normal on the highway. All of a sudden the engine started over-revving and the van slowed down. I pulled over safely. The van would not move in drive although the engine was fine. It had to be towed 100 miles to a transmission shop where we discovered the transmission had to be replaced at great cost.

I have had my Honda Odyssey inspected several times and have complained about a clunking noise coming from underneath vehicle when it comes to a stop. I recently was told by a Honda representative (mechanic of Honda) that some of the Odyssey (2006 model) the noise is from the gas tank bumping. I was told this is just a characteristic of the Odyssey. I told them that sometimes the noise is really a loud and a hard clunk. I then was told just check and see how full the gas tank is at the time. I have researched and learned others have complained about the same problem. I don't how thiscould not be a safety issue when gas is involved? I think they should be doing something to correct this problem.
