I followed the service for this vehicle to the letter with the dealer doing all the repairs. Got to 112,000 miles and the ring went bad in cylinders 1, 2 and 3. Found out there is a recall for this on the 2011, 2012 and 2013 model years. They don't pull the engine, they just pull off the oil pan, crank and pull the pistons out. Replace the rings and shove them back into the block. I would love to know which government agency to complain to about this to get my year on the recall too. $3700 dollars later I got my car back and it is running fine but come on Honda. This is outrageous.
Overall in spite of its size a great city and cross country travel vehicle. Only major negatives were replacement of short block at 37000 miles which was under warranty and rear suspension problems at 50000.
Bought this vehicle 6 months ago, to date it has exceeded our expectations. Every option the Touring Elite trim has is useful and comes in handy. My only gripe is I wish the built in vacuum would have had more power.
BEWARE! This update will NOT let you set a default to turn OFF the "voice" that gives you directions or even turn the volume down!! It can only be done EACH time you start your car through a 5-step process. It's a pain! I asked my local Honda dealer to take this updated navigation out of my 2014 Odyssey bc I wanted my old navigation system back and they are UNABLE to reset it! Ugh! How irritating! Come on Honda. Certainly you can do better than this.
