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.

2008 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

problem #2

Odyssey 6-cyl

When the second row seats are folded down (ie. Some one enters the third row).to return the seat to the original position you have to lean over the seat to release the mechanism, which sends the seat back up violently causing a blow to the head and face and breaking glasses, let alone a severe headache. This has happened on several occasions to several people. Please check if others have reported this safety situation. This occurs with second row captains seats.

My child folded down the third row seat in my 2008 Honda Odyssey and the seat collapsed and fell on his hand, breaking three of his fingers. I contacted Honda and nothing was done.
