Honda's transmission is terrible!!!!!
By burgh2 on


2008 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan w/Nav, Rear Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


This is the second Honda I have owned..it will be my last.
The Acccord I purchased had a bad transmission in the model line, but I was lucky and it ran fine for me.
This time, I landed squarely on a terrible transmission.
It shifts constantly at highway speed.
55-60, 60-65, 65-70, 75-80mph...I've tried setting the cruise and it just keeps shifting.
It's like riding in a vehicle that is hiccupping all the time!!!
I've owned Toyota's and Nissan's in the past and have had great success, so long Honda!

Worst Features

You have a switch on the van to keep it in third gear???? Really? I want a choice for overdrive only, not a third gear. Maybe I could keep it from continuous highway shifting if I could keep it in a 4th gear and out of overdrive.
