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. Notes: The 2007-2009 was, at one point, the best selling minivan in the United States. But 2007 owners got the short end of that deal.

Peeling paint, a whining steering pump and an easily breakable A/C condenser are all top complaints about the 2007 model year. And anyone who doesn't think a busted minivan A/C is a big deal has never taken a summer road trip with kids.

The approximate failure mileage was 124,105....updated 08-26-14- the consumer stated as the fire was taking place the airbag warning light illuminated, then the dash and panel control lighting flashed intermittently.

I have 2007 Odyssey ex-L with dvd. The light in car like head and tail light, room light etc is blinking all the time even I drive my car. I already went to dealer ship two times, they just take a look at the battery during the day time and said everything looks fine. At night, my boy can't read a book in the car because of blinking. It looks the generator has problem.

My complaint regarding my Honda Odyssey may be more of a manufacturer oversight that may not pose an immediate harm to its occupants/other drivers, but rather potential harm to its occupants other drivers. The problem is with the lights. The interior dash lights are on continuously, but the headlights only go on manually. While this is fine during the day, it poses the potential harm at night when the dash lights go on and they headlights do not. I live in a city and a few times at night while leaving a very lit area, I have failed to turn on my headlights because with the dashlights on I have forgotten. While these occurrences were my error, I feel that with car lighting it needs to be all or nothing. While the manufacturers may see this feature as a convenience I see it as a hazard. If the dash lights are on all of the time, then the headlights should be on. Driving without headlights on at night is hazardous to all around and as I said, I live in a city where it is brightly lit and many times the streets are so bright my headlights do not make that much of a difference for my lighting but rather just make me noticeable to others. I feel that this issue needs to be addressed and rectified. I know that other cars have an auto function, where the headlights can be left on all of the time to go on when it gets dark and this would be a safer feature than having them manually operated when the dash lights are on all of the time. Or they can make it so that the dash lights go on when the headlights are turned on. Like I said, with lights is needs to be all or nothing (all manual or all automatic, not half and half). It is just too confusing and in my case, likely to be forgotten. While this issue may not have caused harm yet, I do believe that it has sufficient potential to cause harm and therefore should be addressed. This is a failure on the manufacturers part to save money, but it has made a mini van (which is known for safety) to feel unsafe. Estimated date.
