problem #1

May 012006

We purchased a 2002 Odyssey used and the alloy tires in our climate expand and contract loosening off the wheel lugs slowly including the locking lug causing one tire to fall right off and other to come loose. When we went for new tires the dealer had seen two other cases of the same thing happening to this year of car with these alloy rims. I have seen other Honda's with loose lugs that people had no idea. The dealer (non-Honda) told me that after 50 kms after the tires were changed that they wheels would have to be retourqued, and sure enough there were a couple loose after that time. We now check from time to time but after the second torquing they were not too bad. The dealer said one of his customers had seen a safety notification on this but I could not find it. Check your bolts!!!!!!!!!! often they are loose enough to move by hand.
