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


We bought our van used, but it only had 43K miles. At 52K miles we noticed that every morning it would hesitate shifting, or shift hard. Once it warmed up, the problem wouldn't appear until the next morning. We took it to the dealership, and they said it needed a new transmission. I am a die hard Honda lover, but am disappointed with this flaw. We buy Honda for their reliability.

Best Features

Versatility of the van for families and peace of mind knowing it will be a reliable vehicle for years to come.

Worst Features

Issue a recall and have owners bring vehicle in for inspection. Extend powertrain warranty to cover those who don't experience this problem until powertrain has expired.
