2004 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan w/Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Just had the transmission replaced by the dealer at 84,000. Vehicle was purchased new and serviced regularly at local Honda dealer. Even brought in at 50,000 miles due to concerns I had with the transmission but everything "checked out". Unfortunately my vehicle wasn't including under an earlier transmission recall but Honda did cover a chunk of the $4100 trans repair. Steering wheel radio controls don't always work and driver side rear power vent window does not work. When vehicle was in for transmission replacement was also told that motor mounts needed to be replaced for approx $700. Never had motor mount or transmission issues with any other vehicle, including 4 other Hondas
ride quality has been good and the vehicle is roomy
design a better transmission, from what I've read it's still an issue with later model Odysseys, V6 Accords with the automatic transmission and the Acura MDX. also, the cabin is very noisy. need better insulation to drown out more of the road noise. tried different tires and it didn't help
