2003 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


We have only had ours for a year and a half. It has 95,000 and a DEAD transmission. Called American Honda and they told us ours has been serviced under the warranty in Feb 05. Well whatever they did only lasted 3 1/2 years and now we have a $4000+ bill for a new transmission and an Electronic Computer Unit. They told us take it to your local Honda dealer, let them diagnose and they will tell us if they can help cover any charges. Most likely if they can't help us it will be gone. We can't risk needing a new transmission every 3 1/2 years. If it weren't for safety ratings I'd have an American made van with a cheaper tag for parts and better service

Best Features

I absolutely love all the aesthetic features of my van and am very upset that the rest of it isn't so great. I guess it is great because I can sit out in my garage and look at a van I can't afford to fix.

Worst Features

Transmission, electronic control unit, recall, recall, recall these cars for a known problem and foot the bill for something you know is wrong!
