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.

2015 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 012015

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • 2,000 miles


On February 1, 2015, vdc (vehicle dynamic control), ldw (lane departure warning), and fcw (forward collision warning) all failed simultaneously while driving conservatively at 25 mph on snow covered roads during heavy snow fall. All three systems remained failed for the remainder of the key cycle, which was approximately 45 minutes. During other driving later that day, ldw and fcw recovered, and those lights went out on the dash, but vdc remained failed. The van sat for a week, then I drove it again on Friday February, 6, 2015, for approximately 20 miles. At the very end of that trip, the vdc recovered, and the light went off. I went to germain Honda of ann arbor, mi to have the trouble codes read. They told me there were no codes stored.
