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 #2

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • miles


During acceleration or deceleration, the steering and transmission shudders between 30 and 45 mph. When this condition happens, the vehicle becomes difficult to control and can easily become unsafe. While accelerating, the vehicle can shudder and easily shift to one side. This condition has occurred over the past year. It is now happening repeatedly and with increasing severity. I have replaced tires and checked alignment. I have also replaced brakes and turned rotors. The dealer indicated today that the problem is related to the torque converter and transmission.

The failure occurred when the contact drove between 30-40 mph. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where the contact was informed that the torque converter needed to be replaced. The vehicle had not been repaired. The current and failure mileages were approximately 97,000. The VIN was unavailable.
