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.

The contact owns a 2008 Honda Odyssey. The contact was driving 40 mph when the vehicle independently switched into low gear and attempted to stop without warning. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who ran diagnostics, but could not duplicate the failure. They also inspected the brakes and transmission, but the diagnostics did not generate any failure codes. The manufacturer was contacted who stated that they corresponded with the dealer, but could not find a problem with the vehicle, and could not assist. The failure mileage was 36,138 and the current mileage was 41,000.
