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.

2009 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

Subject: 2008-2009-2010 Honda Odyssey tail light defects comments: 2008-2009-2010 Honda Odyssey tail lights are susceptible to water penetration which will eventually short out the tail lights. This applies to the portion of the tail light which is attached to the rear hatch door. Water accumulates in the white part of the lens which is at the bottom of the tail light in these model years (I.e., the back up lights). There is apparently a design or manufacturing defect in the sealed light system. I have had both tail lights replaced in my 2010 Odyssey due to water penetration & collection. I have photographic evidence to support this claim.
