A Very Comfortable Car to Sit in While We Wait for AAA
By bigdaddymoho on


2012 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan w/Navigation (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


With 6 occasions in 11 monthsafter purchase
where the car could not be started, and 5 trips back to the dealer to try to fix the problem, (and a new battery after the first one died just one month after the car was purchased new) this car is headed for lemon law arbitration. I have owned 7 Hondas. This car shows how badly Honda has slipped. It's a shame that it's such a piece of junk, because on the occasions when it decides to run, it's a very comfortable vehicle.

We have had the same problem too: we had our 2012 new van for over 2 years now and the battery died on us 3 times. Seems like something is draining it intermittently. Wife is still stuck at the dealer, and I just authorized a $170 battery replacement before they run more diagnostics. New batteries last longer than 2 years (34,000 miles). Did you guys find out what was the problem?
