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.

Driving down interstate when I heard a loud explosion. Heard wind sound and looked up. Sun roof was shattered completely with a very large hole in the middle of it. Could find no rock or evidence of anything hitting it.

While driving down the highway on an 80 degree sunny day an explosion sound above my head. Opened moon roof visor and glass was shattered. Stopped and looked at the damage. Looked like something pushed it out vs being hit by anything. There was an 8" hole right in the middle and all the shards of glass around it pointed up. Nothing hit us as both my wife and I where paying attention and no bang like a rock or debris makes when hitting the windshield.

Drivers side sliding door would not close by pushing the "open/close" buttons. Tried multiple times. Upon attempting to close door manually, the entire door fell off the van. Honda's response to the issue is that this is not a warranty issue and they refuse to accept responsibility for the faulty door and related repair costs.

problem #2

  • 1,000 miles
The automatic side door accidentally closed and squeezed on a 7-year-old child's fingers, and could not be openned by any method. We (as parents) tried all door open/close switches, door remote controls, as well as the door's manual handle in order to open the door to release the child's hand, but all effort failed to open the door to release the child's fingers. There is no safety manual override (in the door design) at all that can disengage/disconnect the automatic open/close mechanism when the automatic mechanism fails. The child felt great pain and cried in the meanwhile. Eventually, after 15 minutes, the child's fingers slipped out the squeeze. The door then fully closed and could then be opened again by automatical switches. This lack of manual override of the door's automatic open/close creates huge danger for any child. Can this product be recalled to fix the safety hazzard before it cause further injury to other children?

Thank you kindly
