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: Aside from peeling paint, the 2008 Honda Odyssey is a pretty reliable, generally trouble-free minivan.

The contact owns a 2008 Honda Odyssey. The contact stated the air conditioner cracked spontaneously, as a result smoke was emitted from underneath the hood and the battery power was draining. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who diagnosed that the condenser compressor clutch and the coolant clutch needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The vehicle identification number was not available. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileage was 39,000.

2006 Honda Odyssey - rock or some type of road debris punctured air conditioner condenser. This resulted in a repair bill approaching $1000. The condenser unit is located in the front of the vehicle without any protection. This is a definite design flaw with this vehicle which should be recalled and repaired by the Honda motor vehicle corporation.
