Bad Tranny
By scott1865 on

Vehicle

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 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.

Best Features

Handles well at 75 mph with 6 occupants.

Worst Features

Bumpers (front and back) seem to be broken on many of the Odysseys that i see. Lousy stereo. Difficulty keeping windshield defrosted unless you run the fan on high. Ground clearance too low.

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.
