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.

The contact owns a 2015 Honda Odyssey. While driving 71 mph, the front passenger side curtain and front passenger seat air bags deployed inadvertently. The vehicle was towed to the dealer for diagnostic testing. The diagnostic result was inconclusive. The vehicle was not repaired. The contact mentioned that the vehicle was modified for wheelchair accessibility. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 700.

Brand new 2015 Honda Odyssey out of dealership, there was a hissing sound in the steering hub (passenger airbag assembly). Dealer checked and informed an issue with airbag assembly. After all these recalls, issue in 2015 model is the last thing to expect! safety hazard and very disappointing. Should have stuck to my time tested Toyota!

I did not have an air bag incident. I bought a 2015 Honda Odyssey two weeks ago. I read the nyt article today, and called Honda to find out whether the air bags installed in my car are takata. Honda declined to tell me, stating that they don't give that information to consumers unless their specific vehicle is subject to recall. My complaint is that the issues leading to the recalls seem shrouded in non-disclosure, and that consumers should be able to find out information about their vehicles.
