Purchased 2003 Odyssey new from the dealer (had to preorder because they were in such demand?) NHTSA tranny recall @ dealer 8/2004 w/39,000 miles.
Last week, with 164,000 highway miles (never TOWED) slipping btween 2nd & 3rd gears & lock up 2x on busy highway.
Extremely scary could have been hit and killed. Dealer diagnosed "internal transmission failure". American Honda is useless & tried blaming us.
Dealer agreed to discount AFTER we asked, they never offered.
Inherent well-documented serious tranny problem.
Shame on Honda.
Just traded our '93 Ford Aerostar w/just 157K miles & never had tranny problem.
Wonder why Hyundai is America's #1 Car Dealer....No more Hondas for us!!!
