Transmission denial for Honda Corp.
By amd6577 on


2005 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan w/Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Purchased 2005 Odyssey EX-L DVD in 2011 from Hendrick Honda in Easley, SC. Bad idea. 1 year later with <100K miles, trans shakes and stuck between 2nd&3rd gears. Take to trans shop (we were out of town) and they repair trans (including replacing torque conv) for $2500. 4 months later we get a letter from Honda Corp. that the issue is being covered under ext warranty and to submit documentation.
Today, I got a call from "Ron" at Honda Corp. (who said he has *no supervisor* and refused to provide his last name), saying that our trans. issue is, in fact, not covered.
Oh-- and no appeal process.
I am 100% done with Honda.
Not a quality product anymore. Buying an Odyssey is flushing $ away.
