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.

problem #1

Dec 042009


  • 22,500 miles


The contact owns a 2008 Honda Odyssey. The contact stated that one day after turning the ignition off and taking the key out, she could not get out of the vehicle. She could not use the door locks and she could not re-start the vehicle to get the windows down. The alarm also went off but she could not stop it. After 5 minutes, she was able to get out after the vehicle seemed to reset itself. On another occasion, the rear sliding doors would not function. Once again, after about 5 minutes, the problem seemed to correct itself. She called the dealership but the dealer told her that there was nothing they could do. She had not spoken with the manufacturer to-date. The current mileage was approximately 25,000. The failure mileage was approximately 22,500.
