Tranny has been slipping for 18 months.
Dealer wants $4K- $5k. Independent tranny shop and one Honda salesperson say welocome to the world of Odyssey.
Other than tranny and fw few minor electrical issues, I like the van.
Front end too low. Minnesota snow breaks the plastic.

I have 157,000 miles and the car is still very reliable. Only a couple of very minor repairs over its lifetime. Transmission still going strong (except for a pressure switch < $150 that needed to be replaced). Burns no oil. Great acceleration. Better gas mileage than most. Sliding doors are a poor design and stick often.

We purchased this vehicle used with 26k miles. Here have been the problems since: Transmission replaced at 48k by dealer Passenger side window regulator replaced Sliding doors constantly malfunctioning Front driver's seat jammed Annoying rattling coming from unknown source (dealer couldn't locate either) Front and rear lighter outlets dislodged (not from abuse, from poor design) Transmission being replaced FOR 2nd TIME at 105k In case you didn't catch it the transmission is being replaced for the second time!!
The Odyssey gains a number of improvements this year. Included with the Odyssey 2.1 upgrade is more power, a new five-speed transmission, standard rear disc brakes and side airbags, optional leather seating and DVD entertainment, two new exterior colors and minor interior storage refinements.
