I just spent $1K replacing the rear engine mount after 60K miles.
After researching further, discovered this is common part failure, and will re-occur every 50 - 60,000 miles.
Will definitely trade off this vehicle before another 60K miles and will never buy another again.
This is a vital part and should not fail so frequently.
I expected better quality from Honda.
I have had a few significant problems. First is was the soft break pedal which was a known technical service problem "fixed" by applying silicone to the known leak. At 9K mi transmission quit. They tried to blame me. They said they could find out what I had done for $180/hour. Needed my car so 2 days later they found a loose wire connector re-connected it "under warranty". Shortly beyond the 36 mo warranty (13K mi) again a soft to the floor brake pedal. I found the original TSB for the brakes and insisted they perform that "fix"a new VSA stability module I paid $400
for the part. Now they say soft is normal but I just got a recall notice for a brake defect, they got caught 5 yrs later
It was love at first sight, but after 26,000 mi, I'm close to filing for divorce on my 2008 Odyssey! "How do I unlove thee? Let me count the Defects!" 1. Rattles and window whistles from day one. 2. Mushy brakes: Recalled 3. Shutter and maddening erratic shifting: Re- programmed Transmission. 4. Loud Power Steering noises: Replaced plugged Power Steering Reservoir. 5. And, finally, failed Torque Converter: Replaced. I really what to love her, but she's making it awfully difficult. I guess, like some beautiful women, she's great to look at but she's nothing but trouble on the inside! I hope Honda doesn't run out of parts before the warranty expires!
Have had this car for 8 years and have had no problems. Would buy again without hesitation. Only down side was mileage, but don't know what similar vans do. Can haul 4 adults plus 2 smaller people on backseat with no problem. Runs great with same acceleration. Easy to get in and out which becomes more and more difficult as you get older and joints don't not move like they did when younger. Van is a 2008 Honda Odyssey bought new.
This car is a lemon and has transmission and engine problems. Torque Converter problem with transmission is a known problem they can't fix. They keep getting service updates for the computer but still can t figure it out. Seems like Honda is on its way to Toyotaville. So many problems covered up so the reliability of Japanese cars is now just history. Too bad.
