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


Just got an estimate from the dealer for a new transmission in the amount of $ 5000 and that's with the old PCM (the computer module that dictates how the transmission shifts). It's another $1200 for a new PCM that will supposedly increase the life of these transmissions. This car is only 6 years old. The transmission should last longer in my opinion. I bought Honda because I thought they built reliable cars. This was a disappointment and I will no doubt look to other makes.

Best Features

Automatic climate control, heated seats, DVD player.

Worst Features

Build stronger transmissions and back it up with an unlimited mileage warranty like some other car makers.
