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


I loved this van! I do a lot of driving as a taxi mom of three children-135,000 miles to be exact. Then, I had three lights appear on the dash that indicated that the transmission was going out. I got a quote for $3500 from Honda and $2800 from a local transmission guy. The local guy told me that the month before I talked to him that he replaced more Honda transmissions than GM cars. Honda doesn't make the cars that they used to. Quite frankly, they don't care because they are selling plenty of vehicles. Please investigate this before making the same mistake that I did.

Best Features

I loved the room and the comfort. I loved the reliability until the transmission fiasco.

Worst Features

Honda must fix this transmission problem.
