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.

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

I purchased four after market built in video/dvd monitor head rests that broke apart upon impact when the middle row seat was flipped forward into the front seat of my 2008 Honda Odyssey. The metal support pole was only attached to plastic. This is clearly a defect substandard design which causes concern for me of what would occur during an accident if by just the seat flipping forward into the other could break the housing. The head rest is made by tview mobile entertainment solutions (universal electronics Inc) 5721 savoy St. Houston tx 77036. 800.559.6580 or 832.251.2000 email info@tview.us. The model is T920pl-gr 9.2 tft. I purchased the video head rests from national auto sound located at 11001 E us hwy 40, independence, mo 64055 phone 816.356.8700 www.nationalautosound.com I was told when I purchased the head rest that they comply to safety standards but after the above incident they clearly do not. So my question is what are the standards for after market head rests and are there safety standards companies need to comply to?
