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. Notes: The 2014 and 2015 Honda Odyssey shows an early trend of transmission problems with clunking/jerking when shifting gears.

Most of these Odyssey transmissions are still under warranty, but so far Toyota generally hasn't been able to diagnose or fix the clunking problem — that's the reason for our low rating. Some owners have reported it was a stuck solenoid, & in a few cases Honda has replaced the entire transmission.

As more of these Odysseys start exceeding the 60,000-mile powertrain warranty limit, buyer beware.

2014 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

The 2009 rule requiring changes in head restraints (commonly called head rests) has resulted in a design found on many vehicles (the Honda Odyssey is just one example) that incredibly uncomfortable for many drivers. In your attempt to help keep people safe you have created an unsafe environment. The angle of the head restraint pushing my wife's head down and forward causing pain and preventing her from seeing out the window properly. This creates a serious driving hazard and essentially eliminated any vehicle made since 2010 (we have tried GM, Chrysler, Honda, Toyota so far). This could be solved by allowing the driving to adjust the angle of the head restraint - you know, by treating us adults capable of making decisions on our own and determining what works for us. I find the head restraint uncomfortable but I can "live with it" after adjusting it. Thanking for keeping us safe and ruining driving for my family. Great job! trying googling "uncomfortable headrests in new cars" to see how many people have a problem with this law.
