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.

2011 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 132011


  • 30,000 miles


My 2009 Honda Odyssey ex has 30,000 miles and has ongoing brake issues. The brakes are soft and goes to the floor and the van does not stop unless I pump the brakes. The brakes also make a loud grinding sound when trying to stop quickly and when going downhill:(freeway off ramps). It is not the ABS braking system. There is no pulsating feeling on the brake pedal. The van does not stop when the brakes have this grinding sound. My Honda dealer has looked at the brakes and they say "no issues". they say brake pads and rotors are fine. They were check at every oil change at the dealership. I had the same soft brakes issues with my 2007 Honda Odyssey. The dealer also said no problems but there was a recall with soft brakes problems. I'm worried when I have to go up to the mountain and come back down the hill. There has to be a design flaw to have other Honda Odyssey owners complain about their brakes.
