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.

There is no accident. Seat belt (shoulder portion) is fraying. Not sure if this seat belt is safe or if this is the type of safety issue that NHTSA wants to review. I want to make sure this is not a defect affecting other Honda vehicles.

I was installing a car seat in my Honda Odyssey and noticed that the retractor lock doesn't work on the middle row of my van. Therefore I can not install a car seat safely using the seatbelts in that row.
