2005 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I followed consumer reports recommendation and purchased the odyssey. Overall I like the car, but am disappointed with the service I have received at the dealership and repair problems. At 74,000 the catalytic converter had to be replaced. Five days later the check engine light came on. I was told the rear converter needs replacement! Does the car really have two converters or are they giving me the run around! I'm currently waiting for the new part to be installed. Thank God I don't have to pay for the repairs (covered under the federal emissions warranty)... I was overcharged for a previous repair by $300. It took over a week to straighten the problem out!

Best Features

My favorite feature is the interior comfort.

Yes. There are 2 converters, one for each bank of 3 cylinders. If they both needed replacing at 74,000 miles there is something else wrong with the fuel management system, coolant leak, fouled plugs, etc. More probably the dealer read the code and replaced the wrong converter (there is a separate code for bank 1 and bank 2.
