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

Feb 052007

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,480 miles


Purchased a new 2006 Honda Odyssey ex-L with res and nav in July 2006 in New Jersey (planet Honda). Twice I noticed on very cold mornings (outside temperature was around 10 degrees Fahrenheit at 9:30 am) that after starting the engine the air-bag indicator light came on and would not go away. After driving around for 10 minutes (with the air bag indicator light still on) I switched off the engine and restarted the engine after 5 minutes. This time the air-bag indicator light did not stay on. I brought this problem to the dealers attention. They had a look and concluded that the side impact sensor was malfunctioning (part number 77970-shj-B81). They have ordered two numbers "?? how can this be " this is a brand new minivan with only 5000 miles on it and no collisions not even the least minor ones what so ever. Seems there are some gaps and quality control issues in Honda's manufacturing process now that this minivan is entirely being built in usa. I am just plain lucky that the air-bag (whether side or frontal, I don't know) did not inflate in my face.
