2nd transmission gone
By Ross_t on


2000 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan


Decent minivan, has some squeaks and rattles, struts are shot and the second transmission just blew. The first transmission went at ~58k, less than 40k on the second. I have kept the transmission fluid clean by drain and fills, has Honda trans cooler. Other items replaced have been wear items. I would be quite happy with this vehicle if the transmissions had been better engineered and reliable. Honda has been poor in standing behind their product IMHO and won't get another purchase out of me. (multiple Honda car owner.)

Please Honda, send your transmission designers/engineers to school! Learn how to make your automatics as good as your manual transmissions. Replacing these boat anchor lumps isn't a trivial expense.
