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.

Right tail light filled with water, requiring replacement. Now the left one is full of water too. Vehicle stationary when water observed each time, of course.

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 201 van (I.e., the back up lights). There is apparently a design or manufacturing defect in the sealed light system. I have had the gasket on the left tail light replaced in my 2010 Odyssey due to water penetration & collection. The problem has returned and the dealer confirmed nothing is wrong with the gasket.

Rear taillights on left and right sides fill with water after rain fall. Accumulating water has lead to water flow into interior transferring caustic substances into passenger area that have burned interior carpet in rear compartment fortunately chemical burning was discovered and neutralized before major fire ensued. Dealership stated not a known issue, not covered under warranty. State inspection site will not pass vehicle safety inspection because of electrical fire danger.

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.

The backup lights one my 2010 Honda Odyssey are not bright enough to see anything. My local Honda dealer stated this was a common complaint and there was nothing they could do to remedy the problem. I have had no accidents or injuries due to this problem yet. I have only had the vehicle 3 months.
