85k miles and the transmission needed to be replaced
By mykiddos on
2005 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Our family has been a loyal Honda family until this van.
We will NEVER again purchase another Honda vehicle.
This van has been nothing but problems.
Let me just start off by saying this is a one owner vehicle and all maintenance was done on time or early.
My transmission went out at 85k miles.
Called Honda and they told me to "remember you have ALL those miles."
Refused to do anything about a well documented problem and told me to get an attorney.
A/C compressor went out (another well known problem).
Some of the dash lights have never works and they can't figure out why, battery needs replacing every year, brakes keep making the noise despite the recall.
I could go on and on.
Size of the van
Make a transmission that works.
It is DANGEROUS.
The van just stalls when the transmission goes out.
It isn't as if you turn off the van and then it doesn't start again.
It just stop.
Fortunately I was in a parking lot and not going down the highway at 70 miles an hour.
I will be getting rid of this van as soon as I save up to buy a new vehicle.
To me, it isn't worth the risk with my children.
I know there are some people out there who swear by Honda, but after this van and their response, I am no longer one of them.
