2002 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Tranny has been slipping for 18 months.
Dealer wants $4K- $5k. Independent tranny shop and one Honda salesperson say welcome to the world of Odyssey.
Other than tranny and few minor electrical issues, I like the van.
Front end too low. Minnesota snow breaks the plastic. UPDATE- We ended up getting a new tranny ($3,200) two months after my original review. Fifteen months later we had catastrophic engine problems and put the car down. Since then a friend bought a used 2006 Odyssey. Tranny died four months later. We bought a 2015 Sienna and love it.

I got one of these vans not to long ago from a Honda shop in town. the mechanic said that he has seen the issue before and *most* of the time the fix is a $300 external solenoid but many places will try to sell you a whole transmission. If you haven't gotten it fixed yet ask about it first. The worst that could happen would be that it doesn't work for you and you need a new transmission.
