Transmission problems @ 41000 miles

2002 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I purchased new back in Jan. 2002 and have faithfully followed the necessary scheduled maintenance. But guess what, with only 41200 miles, the transmission needs to be rebuilt. The check engine light came on and the code came up p0730 "incorrect gear ratio". Dealer told me that there is no extended warranty, as assumed by many people. The extended warranty applies only to 1999-2001 odyssey. The standard 3 year/36000 miles applies to my case which I no longer qualify. Dealer was quoting me $5000 to $6000 for a new transmission. I brought it to AAMCO and grudgingly handed over $3004 to rebuild transmission with a 12 months warranty. Again, what happen to Honda quality?!

Best Features

The comfort, spaciousness, and versatility are the pros for this van.

Worst Features

Honda needs to wake up and extend their warranty on the transmissions to the 2002 to 2004 Odysseys. The 1999 to 2001 Odysseys have the same defective transmissions as the 2002 to 2004 vans. Why are certain years covered and not the other years?? Honda 02 Odyssey is definitely NOT RECOMMENDED by me.
