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.

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • 61,416 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

While driving on I-81. I heard a brief, unusual sound inside my Honda Odyssey, then the left rear tire suffered an immediate catastrophic failure. The tire tread just peeled off the tire. Fortunately the tire did not deflate. I was able to safely park off the interstate and call for assistance. The van sustained significant body damage from the tire thread debris. I was towed to the nearest Honda dealer. They had to replace both rear tires with another brand because they did not sell toyo and it was after 6 P.M. they also were able to make the van safe for highway travel by removing broken body parts and securing other body components that allowed me to continue my journey back home without any further incidents.....updated 05/23/12 updated 06/06/2012

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 22,000 miles
Purchased a 2006 Odyssey touring model and the dealer misrepresented the vehicle's "top of the line tires" by claiming superior wear of tires, their value, benefits, overall cost and environmental friendliness... was informed that this was a superior tire that would last just as long as standard tires if not longer and they were much safer - told 50,000 miles before having to consider replacing them; would provide superior road handling; quieter rides; better gas mileage; and because of the expected life of the tire and improved gas mileage, it would benefit the environment (less waste created). Was also told that they are just a bit more to replace than conventional tires because of the gel inside but well worth the additional 10% it would cost over traditional tires because of their safety. Also informed that I should not worry that the vehicle did not come with a spare or jack because the tires can run flat for 150 miles and that the majority of Michelin and Honda dealers in the us are able to repair / replace the tire and they are everywhere. Told that they came with a great warranty and that Michelin would replace the tire if anything happened to them during their warranty period because the vehicle did not come with a spare. Dealer misrepresented the actual replacement and maintenance cost of the tires that now appears to be on an 18 month 20-25,000 mile basis. Based on my past experience, a good set of tires average 5 years 45-50,000 miles and have a cost of 50% less to maintain / replace. Bases on their actual cost and the rate of ware, the tires will cost me 4 times as much as a comparable standard set of tire. There is only a handful of dealers in my local area that are equip to deal with this tire and I am concerned that because of the type of tire and special training needed to replace the tires, nationwide, there is limited availability of dealers that could handle a blowout promoting for potential price gouging.

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 27,500 miles
In November 2005, we purchased the 2006 Honda Odyssey touring mini-van. Upon questioning the pax tire system (a selling point for the touring edition), we were told by the dealership that replacement would cost approximately 10-15% above similar tires. At approximately 27,500 miles (just 16 months after our purchase and regular routine maintenance), we were told by the Honda service technicians that we needed to have all 4 of our tires replaced due to excessive wear (3/32 tread). Upon calling around to several dealerships in our area we discovered the cost to replace all 4 of the tires was $1200. Much, much more than 10-15% above a regular set of similar tires. While we were made aware the additional cost in tire replacement, we were not made aware of the higher frequency this would occur. In fact we were assured by a certified Honda technician that the tread wear of the Michelin pax tires was superior to that of similar mini-van tires. If we had known that there would be a $1200 maintenance cost in the tires alone every 1-1.5 years, we would never have purchased the touring edition of this vehicle. We contacted Michelin who told us to have the tread checked/verified by a certified pax dealer, and they would have a case open. Upon verification of excessive wear by discount tire, Michelin offered a 35% discount on the replacement of the pax tires. Unsatisfied, we proceeded to contact Honda's corporate office in an effort to have the ex model wheels put on the vehicle (at Honda's expense). The corporate office referred us back to our local dealership, who claims the lighter ex model wheels cannot be put on the heavier suspension system of the touring edition. Our current options are to replace with another set of pax tires and hope we donżżT face this excessive expense again in another 12-15 months or replace with after market wheels and tires.
