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.

When doing down hill on the fwy about 65 miles the brakes start to shake and vibrate. Which is very scary. I have read online everyone is having the same issue problem and Honda is refusing to fix it. They stated the router needs to be resurface but this is only 16000 miles on the car.. which makes no sense.

Tpm(tire pressure monitor) light indicating low pressure when there is no error. Dealer (san marco, Texas) claims the issue is due to cell phone charger interference with tpm system. Dealer claims Honda is aware of the issue and sent out a service bulletin to limit the cell phone charger to less than twenty minutes to prevent the tpm fault code and dash light from being set. In my professional option, Honda America has what is known as a 'conductive electro-magnetic interference" issue with their system. Based on what has been communicated, I believe there is an elementary design flaw with their system that allows either the transmitted energy or internal generated signals of cell phone to be coupled into their system using the battery lines.

My 6 month pregnant wife was driving our van from work to home and was on a state highway driving at approximately 55 mph. The right rear tire burst out catastrophically causing the vehicle to go out of control for a brief moment before she managed to pull over to the shoulder. The vehicle has less than 15 K miles and is less than 2 years old. The tires are Continental make that came with the new car. The vehicle (and the tires) has been maintained as required by the car maker and the last tire rotation and re balance was performed approximately 1 month prior to the incident. We strongly believe this is a major manufacturing defect with the tire and this was a safety related event that could potentially have caused a crash. We have further details of tire if needed.

2012 Honda Odyssey has a shuttering at various speeds. This seems most prevalent around 40+ miles per hour, however, it can happen at varying speeds. I have set an appointment with Honda dealer (lehigh valley Honda for Tuesday, January 31. I was informed by the service consultant that this is a known issue, but that there is no fix for this at this time. I filed a complaint with Honda motor corporation regarding this issue. This van is approximately two weeks old and experiencing this shuttering problem. You can feel the vibrations in the steering wheel and in the drivers seat. Additionally, you can hear it as long as you are in a quiet environment. Please investigate as other consumers seem to be experiencing this same issue regarding model years 2011 & 2012. Thank you.
