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

Dec 192005

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,500 miles


New, 2006 Honda Odyssey, purchased new driven for 7 weeks. Leaking noticed on garage floor. Service department said there was a crack in the transmission casing that occurred during manufacturing process, that the mold it was made from must have been defective. Unfortunately, Honda refuses to replace the transmission with a new one, but will use a mish-mash of parts from 2005 & 2006 and claim it as refurbished. They will not guarantee that the parts did not come from vehicles damaged in hurricanes. Our new vehicle will now be a substandard vehicle. I think other vehicles that have transmission made from this lot should be investigated for the same factory defect, and that unsuspecting consumers not have to be forced to underwrite Honda's failed factory inspection process.
