After reading your jumbled review, the question I'm left with is why did you buy an Odyssey if you are so unhappy with all of these issues? It sounds to me as though you did your research after making the purchase. Shouldn't your efforts and research be done before you decide to buy?Report it
Well, after 1400 miles and 4 months of ownership of the van I could no longer stand this van and sold it back to the Honda dealership at a big loss, since I tried to sell by private party for 3 weeks it at below invoice at the 2011 kbb value. Transmission grinds when you put it into first gear after backing up, I am talking about a complete stop and then putting it into first. Odysseys do this, especially the 5 speed automatics. 7 trips to the dealer to fix numerous flaws, I have had enough. What a joke of a product, Honda needs to step up and have better build quality, I am not surprise they are going back to the drawing board with the 2013 civics. They need to do the same with the odysseys. I have decided to purchase a 2012 sienna, guess what no problems with paint, no problems with the transmission, it has a 6 speed auto standard. No headaches so far so good.Report it
I appoligize for my jumbled review in my first posting due to running out of space to write and having to edit my posting. My mistake was not taking a look closer and doing a little more research about the van before purchasing it. Of course, since this is the second year model of release there will be limited consumer complaints and most have not mentioned the problems that I have had. I am only speaking from experience with my own personal van and warning others who are considering buying this same van. This has nothing to do with me, it has everything to do with Honda quality control in Alabama. Everything that I have complained about , Honda has replaced or have fixed due to my due diligence about these flaws. I will tell you this, I will not purchase another Odyssey again. The Honda dealership as well as Honda of America has not given any consideration to my own personal time and gas money for the 6 trips into their dealerships to fix these issues since taking ownership of it 6 weeks now. 6 round trips to the dealership in just 6 weeks of ownership, 2 of the trips I had to leave the van there for 2-3 days that is ridiculous.Report it
