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.

problem #2

We were coming down a mountain and even though I was using the engine to slow down the brakes started pulsing and the steering wheel started shaking. Since that time the problem has gotten worse and now happens at highway speeds. The problem does not go away until the brakes have cooled completely down. I checked on line and found out that this has been a problem with the Odyssey's for years and happens even after replacing the pads and rotors. Our vehicle now has 74,000 miles on it and when the problem occurs the shaking of the steering wheel can be severe.

Brake rotors showed abnormal wear with little notice. In previous two weeks, the brakes appeared "soft" and have required firmer braking. When I took the vehicle in for new brake pads, the mechanic showed the rotors to us as warped and unable to be machined. We have about 55K miles on the vehicle and are not heavy brakers. Looking at the online forum, it is clear that there is an issue with the brake system and in particular with premature wear of the rotors. As an aside, we have never replaced our rotors in our 2003 Honda civic with 150K miles.
