2009 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Sold 11 yr running Dodge Caravan, bought 09 Honda Odyssey. Had for about 3 months, took out west. Before return home took drive to Sedona, AZ, lost power on National Forest Road w/few places to pull over - van towed to dealership on Sunday. Monday told the whole upper engine destroyed by disintegrated bolt, needed days to repair. Afraid to drive it home about 1800 miles to Ohio. Informed insurance agent of manufacturer defect - if something else happens to investigate van. Seriously worried we could have been in bad accident. Honda disinterested in our concerns - repaired to their satisfaction not ours.

Best Features

too disappointed to pick any

Worst Features

A defective bolt? someone should be making sure bolts do not disintegrate that are integral to an engine - unbelievable that such a small part caused so much damage.
