 I'm filing this complaint to report three ongoing problems and one new problem, all related to the rear sliding door latches, locks and handles: 1. the door latch on the rear passenger-side sliding door of our 1999 honda odyssey lx becomes loose while the vehicle is in motion, causing the interior lights and rear door-open indicator to flash on intermittently. 2. the rear sliding doors often are extremely difficult to open from the outside. the van has been serviced for these two problems at no cost on three separate occasions by a local honda dealership (trickett honda). 3. sometimes the locks on the sliding doors don't engage when the automatic lock button is pushed. 4. the outside door handle on the rear passenger-side sliding door does not retract back into the indented slot and no longer opens the door. *nm

 I will be driving and my car will just shut off, i also have the extended stopping problem and braking causing me to manually steer. i have also had trouble with the car not starting or starting slowly. i was told there were several recalls before i purchased the car and they were repaired - the abs was done last year but the problem continues. i would like the abs replaced. i checked your website for outstanding recalls and found. i called the dealer and was told the abs was done 2/04 but the truck continues to have the same problem - extending stopping. i have had my passport 3 years and have only received one recall - but the problem currently exists ... extended stopping distance. the only recall sticker in the door is for the pedal. additionally, i have also had a problem with the truck turning off in the middle of a turn (forcing me to manually steer my car) 98v70 (describes it completely) my truck also refuses to start properly. it starts and then shuts off - sometimes it takes up to 3 times to turn on and stay on. (sb03-03-s003 describes this as well) since i cannot determine who performed the other recalls, how can i be certain they were done or done properly? my vehicle continues to have the identical problems associated with the following recalls: nhtsa campaign # 02i002001 - service brakes, hydraulic; anti-lock (5/29/02) 98v170000 - electrical system - wiring, front underhood (7/23/98) 98v170002 - electrical system - wiring front underhood (7/23/98) 00v058000 - suspension, rear (2/29/00) 97v206002 - other (11/11/97) i have not had any accidents as a result, but i am afraid to drive with my children in the car if my car just shuts off in the middle of a turn, or on the freeway and at low speed. i have also had it accelerate while on the freeway revving the engine constantly - these have all happened for the last 3 years with no recall notices.*jb
