Unknown Or Other problem #1
The vehicle is a 2006 Honda Odyssey. Vehicle identification number (VIN): 5FNRL38616_. Have had intermittent vibration coming from engine compartment. Primarily occurs at any speed when the vcm or eco mode activates. Not sure what other issues this may cause but seems unsafe. Honda dealer diagnosed issue as a broken rear engine mount. Cost to repair is $866. This problem occurred on 10/17/2012.
Unknown Or Other problem #2
The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 5FNRL18623_. My husband parked our 2003 Honda Odyssey in our driveway, alongside the main entrance to our home. He removed the key and went inside, placing the key in the usual location. He changed his shirt, intending to remove from the car the 4' x 8' sheet of exterior plywood he had just purchased. When he went back outside, the car had rolled backwards down our driveway and across the road, and was floating in the lake directly in front of our home. The car slowly sunk to the bottom of the lake. A tow truck was called and a diver located the vehicle in the 15 foot deep water. The insurance company "totalled" the car, and said the incident was the fault of the driver, for not putting the car in "park", even though the key had been removed. The car was not stopped on a sloping surface, but the weight of the plywood probably caused the car to roll backwards onto the sloping part of our driveway. Since there has been no recall based on this defect, the insurance company places full blame on the driver. How can I get them to not charge this incident to driver negligence? he has never had a chargeable accident, and this should not have happened, with the key removed from the ignition. This unknown or other issue occurred Mon., Oct. 15, 2012.
Unknown Or Other problem #3
The car involved was a 2006 Honda Odyssey. I took my car in for an oil change and they advised me that my front engin motor mount has gone bad. I have not gotten it replaced however they are charging my $800. 00 for it. After reading thousands of complaints online it seems that Honda 2005's and above are having issues with them breaking more often then what they should be since the actual unit is tucked up right near the exhaust manifold and the rubber wears out quickly. I have never ever experienced a car where you had to replace the mount under 100k miles. This unknown or other problem happened on Oct. 19, 2012.
Unknown Or Other problem #4

Unknown Or Other problem #5
The vehicle was a 2002 Honda Odyssey. Driving under nomal conditions, the transmission started jerking and slipping losing traction. The warning light came on. I took it to my mechanic the next day.

This unknown or other problem happened on 09/27/12.
Unknown Or Other problem #6
The car is a 2012 Honda Odyssey. The VIN of this Odyssey is 5FNRL5H60C_. A/c stopped blowing cold air all of a sudden. Took car to dealer for diagnosis. Dealer stated rock punctured the condenser, and is not covered under warranty. We believe, and thousands of others, that this is a manufacturers defect and flaw in design that does not adequately protect this component, hence american Honda is making a ton of money off its customers for repairs. Contacting american Honda for resolution is useless, as they are standing behind a routine explanation of that they are not liable for this type of failure, in their design. We need help!. It was October 1, 2012 when this unknown or other issue happened.
Unknown Or Other problem #7
The car involved is a 2003 Honda Odyssey. Vehicle was parked. Driver used front dash auto open button to open side door on driver's side. 6 year old child in the back seat had gotten out of her car seat and as the door was opening her leg slipped into the open space between the door and the retractor bar. The door did not register that there was an object and continued to press on her leg until driver was able to exit vehicle and pull sliding door handle to reverse direction to free up the child's leg. Leg was painful but no serious injury on this occasion. It was Wed., Jul. 25, 2012 when this unknown or other issue occurred.

Unknown Or Other problem #12
The car involved is a 2007 Honda Odyssey. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was 5FNRL38417_. The tailgate of my van, didn't stay open. As soon as I leave my hand from it, instead of staying open, it just came down and closed. I was nearly hurt. . . . . I talked to american Honda, and they didn't think this is worthy of recall. Even though, 2008 Honda odyssy has a similiar defect and they have issued recall. But not for 2007 model. It was Dec. 1, 2011 when this unknown or other issue happened.
Unknown Or Other problem #13
The vehicle having this issue was a 2006 Honda Odyssey. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 5FNRL382X6_. Passenger side sliding door failed to disengage the lock. Had to take to the dealer where they removed the door panel and replaced the latch. Since the door would not open they had to do this from the inside of the vehicle. On 9/1/2012 the driver side sliding door also failed to disengage the lock. I have not had this repaired yet. I believe this is a safety defect. Luckily both times we were parked, but if it had been an emergency valuable time would have been wasted in trying to get a non-functioning door to open. This problem occurred on Saturday, September 17, 2011.
Unknown Or Other problem #14

Unknown Or Other problem #15
The VIN of the problem Odyssey is 5FNRL5H9XC_. Our brand new 2012 Honda Odyssey touring elite judders between 25-40 mph between shifts. The judder can be anywhere from mild and very transient to rough bucking that lasts for over 2 seconds before it smooths out. Under mild or heavy acceleration, I have not not noticed the judder. It seems to only happen under moderate acceleration. It also seems to occur more violently while going uphill. It happens at least 90% of the time during the shift between 2nd and 3rd gears under moderate (typical) acceleration. This judder results in a loss of expected acceleration and decreased control of the vehicle. While researching this problem, it became obvious that I am not the only person experiencing this issue and feel that Honda must recall these vehicles to permanently repair the underlying issue. This issue affects more than just the 2012 model year. It was Fri., Jan. 20, 2012 when this unknown or other issue occurred.
Unknown Or Other problem #16
Excessive shuddering / jarring with 2007 Honda Odyssey touring model. Problem was recognized when initially purchases used from luther Honda in hopkins, mn.

The car is a 2000 Honda Odyssey. I am having transmission problems, when shifting from 1st gear to second it slips and suddenly goes into gear, also when in 4th gear it tends to slip, rev up then jumps back into gear. I think its very dangerous and may cause an accident. I read the fourms on problems with the trans on the Odyssey and noticed there is too many complants on the same problem. I hope you can look into this issue and help resolve this issue for me and all the other Honda Odyssey owners. Thank you. . . . . . This unknown or other problem happened on July 8, 2012.
Unknown Or Other problem #23
The vehicle involved was a 2011 Honda Odyssey. The VIN of the car is 5FNRL5H67B_. The van has, on numerous occasions (approx 1 per 1000 miles) failed to accellerate on command, in fact, it actually seems to stall out for 1 to 5 seconds. The longer it stalls out, the more explosive the accelleration, once it comes. This condition seems to crop up most often just after slacking off on the gas. For example: in traffic, if I and have taken my foot off the gas to maintain space from the car in front of me, then try to accellerate to get into an opening in the adjacent lane, the van just hangs there, as if the ignition has been turned off. Then suddenly, the car responds to the accellerator with a jerk. My theory is that it has to do with the fuel conservation system that turns various numbers of cylinders off and on, depending on demand. I have reported this to the dealer who sold this to me and they asked me if I could take it out for a drive and duplicate it for them. I told them it would be okay if they were willing to pay for the gas because I can't "make" it do it on command. I've just become aware that what I describe is the most common circumstance: steady or slight accelleration followed by slacking off, followed by an attempt at rapid accelleration. The attempt at rapid accelleration results in hesitation and then rapid accelleration, either of which, could create the situation for an accident. This issue happened on Wednesday, November 17, 2010.

Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 5FNRL384X8_. On 12/17/2011, I took my 2008 Honda Odyssey in for service to have the transmission checked since there was fluid leaking and what felt like transmission slippage. Because I purchase the car new, had all of my services completed, and because the van only had 84,000 miles, you can imagine my surprise when sons Honda (same place where I purchased and had all services completed) informed me I needed a new transmission and quoted me a price of $4,105. Because the mileage was over 60,000 miles, when I filed a customer complaint with Honda customer relations, I was informed there was nothing that could be done. This unknown or other issue occurred Dec. 17, 2011.
Unknown Or Other problem #33
The vehicle identification number (VIN) is 5FNRL38707_. Dera sir: we bought this vehicle (Honda Odyssey, 2007) in may 2007 in michigan. Since last 18 months, we have been experiencing serious issues with this vehicle. One issue was power steering (not able to maneuvering), I went to Honda. They changed the power steering unit twice in the last 12 months (I purchased extenede warranty, otherwise it would have been an expensive thing for me). Again, I had same issue this week, then I went to Honda. They mentioned "right side inner and outer tie rods loose and were completely worn out". They did mentiioned to me that it is dangaerous to drive this vehicle. They kept my vehicle overnight and installed a new part. I believe there is serious flaws in the design of this particle year model. Today I am experienceing different problem, shaking engine at 40 mph. They did update the software but still there is problem in this vehicle. I apreciate if nha would take a look into this matter. I almost spent more than $10000 on this vehicle and I realized I bought a piece of junk from Honda which I thought was a reliable maker. Information redacted pursuant to the freedom of information act (foia), 5 u. S. C. 552(b)(6). This issue happened on Monday, July 4, 2011.

The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 5FNRL38407_. Rear liftgate struts on 2007 Honda Odyssey experienced sudden failure causing the rear liftgate to suddenly close on me when standing under it. Struts are manufactured by stabilus part # 6826ur 0810n 334/06 c7. The part number is 74820-shj-a012. There was a previous safety recall for the 2005 Honda Odyssey for this same issue. The NHTSA action number ea08015. There is no recall notice for the 2007 sudden strut failure. This problem occurred on Oct. 25, 2011.
Unknown Or Other problem #36
The VIN of this vehicle is 5FNRL38767_. 2007 - 2010 Honda Odyssey owners are targeted to receive notification of a "warranty extension" to replace the power steering pump under certain conditions. I received the notice for my 2007 Honda Odyssey, suffered with the "hard to turn" condition (see TSB 10-076) and associated pump whining noise that is described in TSB 07-005 (defective pump reservoir). Although the pump was extended warranty replaced at university motors (missoula) I was required to pay for the replacement of the reservoir ($66. 08). My understanding is that the reservoir defect is what causes the pump to fail. I believe that a recall should be required and all owners that have been required to pay for the reservoir (or pump) should be 100% reimbursed. American Honda automobile refused to reimburse for this replacement stating that the extended warranty applies only to the pump. Please review huge complaint data base. This problem occurred on Monday, November 21, 2011.
Unknown Or Other problem #37
The vehicle involved was a 2006 Honda Odyssey. Recently I have felt a "shuddering" at speeds below 40mph. I take it to the shop for that problem as well as another issue with my power sliding doors. This is not the first time I have had problems with my doors. I have already had to replace the motor in the driver side sliding door(which was covered by warranty at the time). And now I am look at replacing power door center rollers in both power sliding doors at an estimated $560. 00 (and no longer have warranty). Since I have had the vehicle it has been a hassle with the power sliding doors. They close have way on my children getting in and out of the car all the time. And dont work the other half of the time. The issue with the "shuddering" is due to front and rear engine mounts needing to be replaced at an estimated $1355. 00. I have done some research online about this problem and it seems that alot of the 2006 Honda Odyssey's have had the same issue and some happening again shortly after it has already been replaced once. I think that Honda shoould do a recall on the "defective engine mounts". This cannot be safe to ride in. I have also read that Honda is aware of the problem and is calling it a "known issue" but still not fixing the problem or reimbursing people the cost of repairs. How many more people have to complain about this or even get injured before Honda will do something about it???. The failure date was Jun. 15, 2011.
Unknown Or Other problem #38
The car is a 2006 Honda Odyssey. Our car started having a louder engine/transmission noise during acceleration and going uphill. When the dealer checked it out they said that the rear engine mount would need to be replaced (at a cost of $800 plus). After doing some research on this, I believe that this is a design flaw with the Honda Odyssey that occurs because of the variable cylinder engine, which cuts out 2 cylinders when they are not needed and thus saves gas mileage on these cars. My understanding is that the rear motor mount on these cars was designed to help dampen any vibration caused when the 2 cylinders were not in use and has been wearing out before its regular life (some at 50,000 miles). I request that NHTSA look into both the design of this device and also the excessive cost of the part for these cars (other engine mounts are considerably cheaper) -- and I propose a recall to replace the part. Thank you. This unknown or other problem happened on 10/20/2011.
Unknown Or Other problem #39
At less than 80,000 my Honda Odyssey have been diagnosed as having a broken rear engine mount causing vibration/ratlling noise. Several Honda Odyssey van owners have similar complaint. The failure date was 09/26/11.
Unknown Or Other problem #40
The car is a 2006 Honda Odyssey. The VIN of the car is 5FNRL38646_. Failure of exhaust system heat shields could cause vehicle fire. Consumer has no way of knowing that the safety shields are no longer in place. Dealer indicated exhaust system heat shields were loose and missing and had to be replaced. Dealer indicated failure to replace could result in melting of insulation on electrical wires. I feel the heat shields should have been manufactured using stainless steel to prevent corrosion and loss of this important safety feature. At $615 to replace, it is unlikely many people will have this work performed, especially as the vehicle ages. There are normal/expected safety features that car owners expect to replace (tires, wiper blades and bulbs). The consumer has no way of knowing if the safety shields have fallen from the vehicle. When contacting Honda customer service I was told it was my responsibility to keep the car operating in a safe manner. But if I was not told (by the dealer) that I had a safety issue, I would have had no way of knowing. There are likely many other unsuspecting Odyssey owners with this potential safety/fire hazard. It was Friday, September 2, 2011 when this unknown or other issue occurred.
Unknown Or Other problem #41
Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 5FNRL38636_. In the summer of 2009, my 2006 Honda Odyssey developed a strong, foul odor for which no source could be found. I vacuumed the carpet, left containers of baking soda inside, and even threw away the rubber floor mats, thinking they had deteriorated in the summer heat. The odor did not go away. (the car had been garage-kept until around that time. ) in 2010, when taking the car for a routine service appointment, I asked the service manager to check for the problem. He wanted to replace the cabin air filter, which I had already done myself. In September, 2011, after hurricane irene, the tailgate hatch would slosh and spill water when opened. This past week, I went to drive the car on an extended trip. When I went to lift the rear seats, which had been folded into the cargo area, to the upright position, I discovered that the seats were covered in mold and rust and were dripping with water. The cargo area carpeting was saturated. Upon researching this problem on the internet, I learned that this has been a problem since at least November, 2010. Besides the heath risks associated with exposure to inhaling mold, the rust may have compromised the integrity of the hardware securing the seats to the floor, to say nothing of the cosmetic damage to the leather of the seats. The failure date was Jun. 15, 2009.
Unknown Or Other problem #42
The VIN of this Odyssey is 5FNRL387X5_. My 2005 Honda Odyssey is taking on water in the hatchback/liftgate.

The car involved is a 2004 Honda Odyssey. VIN not available: car currently in service on Monday, 12/19/2011, the Odyssey accelerated even after applying brakes to slow down. Had to pull into service shop and drive until the car could be safely placed in park, and had to shut off the engine. Was told the electronic throttle position sensor (part #047211) would have to be ordered from Honda and replaced. The car was available for pick up on Tuesday 12/20/2011. On Wednesday, 12/21/2011, while traveling east on the new york state thruway the car began to accelerate again above the speed limit without stepping on the gas. The cruise control was not on. The car continued to accelerate after depressing the brakes. I had to pull to the side of the road and into a service station. Continued to drive around parking lot until I could put the car in neutral and, again, shut the engine off. Even when car was turned back on the engine accelerated. The car is currently at a certified Honda repair shop in yorkville, n. Y. Being evaluated. They are telling us they will need to check engine and transmission mounts on the vehicle (due to being in an accident in 2009, but was reconditioned in 2010 by another Honda dealer), also will check cable between throttle body and gas. Still waiting to hear if anything has been resolved. This car is the main car for our household which includes 4-year-old triplets (one has special needs). Only the operator was in the vehicle when both incidents occurred. It was Mon., Dec. 19, 2011 when this unknown or other issue occurred.
Unknown Or Other problem #49
The car was a 2003 Honda Odyssey. While driving on a highway 65 mph with my kids in the car, the drivers side automatic sliding door opens all by itself. We had to find a place to pull over and shut the door. The door opens fine but will not latch on and close properly anymore. The interior cal lights go on and everything starts beeping and dashboard starts flashing. It is not only very distracting but also very dangerous. The door just won't shut anymore.

The car involved was a 2003 Honda Odyssey. 2003 Odyssey left my wife in a terrible situation. It suddenly failed when she was in the middle of traffic with children in the car. With no warning, it would not move the vehicle and ground to a stop, leaving her almost out of control of the vehicle. Honda is supposed to be a manufacturer with well designed, reliable products, but it is not so with this transmission. When a manufacturer realizes there is a problem with a vehicle, but year after year after year does nothing to remediate the problem, it is irresponsible and reckless to continue to manufacture the vehicle with the problematic transmission. It was 09/16/2011 when this unknown or other issue occurred.

The vehicle was a 2003 Honda Odyssey. The VIN of this Odyssey is 5FNRL18023_. On the freeway when all of a sudden without warning slipped and lost power. Very scary with small children in the car and was barley able to make it off the freeway without getting into an accident. Only by the grace of god did we make it safely off the freeway. Honda dealer said we needed a new transmission. I had the extended warranty up to 106,000. Just a few thousand miles over warranty and Honda would only grant %50 coverage. Still cost me $2797. 00. Honda of America knows all about this transmission problem but still does not compensate loyal Honda customers. My dealer replaced this transmission (that had a previous recall in 2003) with a "re-manufactured transmission" now on September 19, 2011 the tcs light came on with the engine warning light and the car "shuddered" badly at 30 mph. Brought to the dealer but they are denying that it is a transmission problem? we bought the Honda Odyssey for its safety features and reliability. Honda and their dealer are not standing behind their product. I will look elsewhere for my next car purchase. This unknown or other problem happened on Monday, September 19, 2011.

The car is a 2003 Honda Odyssey. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was 5FNRL18093_. This vehicles came equipped with p225/60r16 tire sizes. The normal load index of this type of tire 98, which can carry a maximum load of 1653 pounds. Thwe maximum load the front two tires can carry is 3,306 pounds. The curb weight of Honda oddysey is 4. 509 pounds. Normally 70 % of the gross vehicle weight is on the steering axel. That means that front of the vehicle should have about 3,200 pounds of weght without any driver or pessenger in this vehicle. A normal driver and passenger would weigh about 350 pounds together. Thus it can be seen that Honda Odyssey tire sizes was selected inadquately to meet its loading requirements. The tire size were designed inadequately to carry the design load of this vehicle resulting in premature wear out of tires or possible tire busting due to continuous over load on designed capacity. This vehicle should be recalled for corrective actions. For your information new Honda Odyssey now comes standard with 235/65r17 tires, appropriate tire size fo loading capacity. Why consumers of 2003 Honda Odyssey are punished for manufacturing defects and possible harm in operting it. ?. This problem occurred on Friday, February 5, 2010.

The vehicle was a 2002 Honda Odyssey. Transmission was not shifting correctly ---loud noises and the engine was revving and van was going nowhere---could only move if speed was kept under 20mph kept in first gear----------brought vehicle to my mechanic for diagnosis( he told me the tranny was bad and needed to be replaced ) only having mileage in the 54000-55000 range and knowing the vehicle was driven around town and the occasional vacation trip since we bought it new. I called Honda and was given a case number and they told me they would not honor my mechanics diagnosis and I needed to bring it to a Honda dealer. They agreed and told me the transmission needed to be replaced also and charged me $120. 00 for my "diagnosis". They also informed me they could replace the transmission and computer for $7800. 00. They told me both the computer and transmission needed to be replaced at the same time in order to have a "warranty" applied to the new transmission. I asked which item was bad the transmission or computer that told the tranny to shift at the correct rpm. They would not answer the question just that the home office has set this precedent ---both need to be replaced at the same time. Seems as though they don't have an idea what is going on or just covering themselves. My mechanic replaced the transmission and computer with genuine Honda parts for a little under $5000. 00 and I have the "warranty" they offered as well. I am still waiting for Honda America to review and help me out with paying for repairs that I feel were very premature for the age and mileage of their outstanding and best selling minivan prior to the replacement the dealer offered me $750. 00 for my fully loaded minivan ------great people these Honda dealers. . . . . . . . . . . . . You decide-----me I can't wait to sell this piece of cra_. This unknown or other issue occurred Thursday, July 7, 2011.

In 12/08 I had to replace my transmission cost 1298. 00. I was never informed by Honda that there were problems with the 2000 Odyssey automatic transmission. On June 23 2010 while traveling from canada on I-95 the transmission blew with heavy thick black smoke which obscured my vision. Thick black oil spewed everywhere and we were traveling through macon GA. The vehicle began hesitating and it stalled right in the middle of the heavy traffic on I-95. This could have been a disaster because another vehicle could have crashed right in back of us. I had my entire family in the car, my wife and 4 children ages 16,15,11,9. I was able to coast the car off of the ramp. We were greatly inconvenienced and had to stay in macon GA for two additional days and it cost me additional 525. 00 to replace the transmission that I just replaced in Dec 2008. Honda never informed me about the 2000 Odyssey transmission problems that they were aware of since sept 2002. In Jan 2007 I complained yet again of transmission problems with the same dealership. On 11/26/11 the transmission failed in the middle of the turnpike which it began to smoke and spew oil. Again this could have been a disaster because someone could have crashed in back of my vehicle. Fortunately I was able to coast the car off the ramp at bird road and call aaa. The care is at rick case Honda. This is a very serious problem.

Just imagine a van traveling @ 55/hr and suddenly stopped on a busy 1-4 in orlando florida. Looking at the Honda Odyssey's forum, this is not an isolated incident.

We own a 2005 Honda Odyssey, which was purchased in July of 2005. We started having problems with it in April of 2008. First the catalytic converter went out, then there was an oil consumption problem. We had many oil changes at the dealership and faithfully changed the oil when the computer in the car told us to. But then, it would dump two quarts of oil without any notice. For instance, on may 23rd, 2010, we had a oil changed at the Honda dealer we had purchased the vehicle from, in anticipation of a 400 mile trip. The car started acting up on our way there and we ended up spending the majority of June 14th sitting in a dealership. We left the dealership and almost made it home before the car started acting up again. We limped into the driveway, but it required towing to the Honda dealer in santa cruz, CA for more repairs. They accused us of not maintaining the car because it was two quarts low, yet we checked the oil before it was towed to the dealership and it was full in our driveway. The dealer said it was because we checked the oil while it was off. It wasn't even driven in between until the dealer did diagnostic on it. Then they told us all cars need a value adjustment at 80,000 miles. We have spoken repeatedly with Honda of America and Honda care and they have repeatedly acted surprise with our problems. They deny that they know or suspect that there is a problem, yet a search on the internet reveals many pages of complaints about several models of Honda cars with oil consumption problems. This issue happened on Jun. 23, 2010.

The vehicle was a 2007 Honda Odyssey. Vehicle identification number (VIN): 5FNRL38467_. Component failure: a/c condenser, due to small object hitting it. A/c no longer works and dealer wants $1,000 to repair. This is a problem that Honda has known about since 2004 at least, I. E. , the a/c condenser is susceptible to damage from small road objects (stones mostly). Honda refuses to acknowledge their fault, claiming damage is "accidental". My position is that this is a design flaw that Honda was aware of and could have easily prevented. In 2008 model year, Honda covered the condenser with a shield to prevent further problems. My dealer is offering to add this shield for $70. 00 (in addition to the $1,000 repair bill) to prevent further occurences. This may not be a safety problem but it surely smacks of a consumer rip-off. Honda poorly designed the shielding for the condenser, knew about the problem for years (just google the issue), and then allowed its dealers to charge $1,000 for the problem they created. Obviously, the delaers are happy with this common problem. Extended warranty does not cover this repair either. Honda claims the damage is like a stone hitting the windshield. However, the purpose of the windshield is to prevent a stone from hitting the car's occupants; no one would argue Honda is responsible for the windshield doing the job it was intended to do by preventing a stone from hitting the occupants. With regard to the condenser, Honda could easily have prevented the problem by placing a shield over the affected part(s). It chose not to with the full understanding this common problem would cost its customers hundreds of thousand (if not millions) of dollars to repair. It was 06/24/2011 when this unknown or other issue occurred.

The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Honda Odyssey is 5FNRL18003_. I am writing today with concerns about my 2003 Honda Odyssey. The vehicle was recently at the dealership for a timing belt replacement. Much to my dismay, I received a call saying that the front and side engine mounts were bad and needed to be replaced at a cost of $516. 81. I must say that I have never heard of engine mounts going bad on a vehicle and needing to be replaced. We bought a Honda Odyssey to have as a reliable family van that we planned to keep for a while. One of the main reasons we bought a Honda is because of the noted reputation for being a safe and reliable auto brand. The dealer stated that the motor mount replacement should correct another problem that we reported with the van. The transmission regularly makes a terrible clunking noise when it is shifted from park to reverse. We also reported this same clunking and some slipping in the transmission when the vehicle was under warranty and were told that it was not a problem. These problems have never gone away and we have great concerns about the viability of the transmission in our Odyssey. Fortunately it has not left us stranded on the roadside and stuck with a huge repair bill yet. Our concerns seem to be validated based on the information we have read on various web sites about the problems and failures of the Odyssey's transmission. We went ahead and spent the money to have the engine mounts replaced. However, this has not fixed the problem with the â€œclunkingâ€� noise when shifting the vehicle from park to reverse. I would like to think that we could drive this van for several years to come and accumulate well over 100,000 miles based on the purported reliability of the Honda brand. It looks like the motor mount issue as well as the transmission problems should prompt a recall for this model year due to the volume of issues. The failure date was Sunday, July 10, 2011.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2008 Honda Odyssey. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of this Honda Odyssey is 5FNRL38607_. The ac stopped working on our year old vehicle. When taken to the dealership for diagnostics they advised a leak was found on the ac condenser which was caused by road debris. They indicated that type of damage was not covered under warranty and handed me a repair estimate for $764. 92. I declined the repair bid and took the vehicle home only to find out there are hundreds of other Honda Odyssey owners reporting the same problems and the same story given by the dealerships. After finding this information I confronted the dealer and attempted to bargain with them gladly offering to pay for the labor to install the new condenser but not for the part. Needless to say my efforts were futile and I was referred to Honda customer service. In January I filed a case with Honda who after about a week contacted me and informed that because the damage was caused by road debris they were could not be responsible. I certainly can not hold Honda responsible for road debris damage such as a cracked windshield or punctured tire. However, I still hold them responsible for their poor design and placement of such critical and fragile part in a place where is more susceptible to get hit by road debris. With years of car design experience you would expect a company like Honda would take this into consideration. However, they did not and expect the consumer to pay for their design flaw.

Crash was involved with the Honda Odyssey. I was driving my 2007 Honda Odyssey. As I was coming to a stop, I became involved in an accident. Over the recent weeks I thought it was taking longer to stop my van, but had my van in for service the week before. I was assure that everything was fine and all fluid levels were correct. ***note: on my first service visit the service adviser told me that I should not be concerned about brake fluid levels that the van would notify me when it was time to replace the breaks and that the van was designed to do so. The police were called to the scene of the accident. I could not explain the accident and the officer coaxed me in to saying that I had been distracted. I was in shock. My son was in the car with me and I could not think much of anything else other than whether he was safe. I believe I had come to a complete stop then hit the vehicle in front of me. My airbags did not deploy. Ever since the accident I have continued to notice that I must press the brake pedal all the way to the floor at times to stop the van and other times I don't in normal driving circumstances. All along I had believed the dealership that everything was fine with my vehicle. Now I have damages to pay and a ticket I am facing as a result of what I believe to be break failure. I will be making a follow-up report with my local police department, faxing a copy other similar break failure complaints to my insurance company, contacting Honda and hopefully will be able to get some answers on the problem with my van. This problem occurred on 05/14/2008.

The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) was 5FNRL38667_. My 2007 Honda Odyssey has a problem with "memory steer". When you make a turn to the left them the car has a problem with pulling to the left. When you make a turn to the right then the car has a problem with pulling to the right. This condition seems to be worse to the left. This is a major problem. The vehicle will change lanes into oncoming traffic or head toward the ditch very quickly. This condition caused driver fatigue in that you have to constantly grip the steering wheel tightly fighting against the pull of the car causing you wrist and hand to hurt on longer drives (over 30 to 60 minutes). This problem occurred on Friday, October 30, 2009.

I have a 2007 Honda Odyssey and the sliding doors do not latch properly, which could open while driving with my children sitting in the car. I get an audible chime telling me "a" door is ajar, but no warning light on the dash. When I come to a stop by hitting the breaks I hear the door finally close. This is a very scary knowing that I could be driving down the interstate and my doors could slide open at anytime. I have taken my car to the dealership numerous times in which they have replaced a failed door latch and tightened the chain and the problem still has not been corrected. I have seen many issues with this in other forums and I wonder what it is going to take for a recall to be issued. This issue happened on 03/01/10.

Bought a 2006 Honda Odyssey in may 2006. Less than a month later, on a very hot day, air conditioner stopped working. Took to dealer. It was determined that a "rock or something" hit and pierced the condenser while driving the vehicle. Since it was not a manufacturing defect, it was not covered by warranty. Have read several other reports on internet of this same thing happening. Obviously, this is a design defect that could be fixed by a grill cover. Yet, Honda refuses to do so, and charges customer for repair. This problem occurred on June 7, 2006.

A/c problem 6 months after purchase. We purchased a new 2006 Honda Odyssey in June 2006, and in December we started having a/c problems. It was diagnosed as having a hole in the a/c condensor which the Honda dealer stated to be caused by a rock. The van had less than 11,000 miles on it, and we purchased an extended warranty when we bought the van. Surely, the original warranty or the extended warranty should cover such a problem, but Honda said no. Being only 6 months old, we find it very frustrating to have to pay for something like this when it appears to be a design flaw by Honda. The a/c condensor is just sitting there exposed to all the elements of the road with no grill in front of it. The american Honda rep agreed to pay half as a "good will gesture". It still cost us $275 for the repair. Lots of others are having the same issue with Honda odesseys as seen on the internet. Honda should be forced to recall these vehicles and install a screen in front of the condensor to protect it, and should be forced to reimburse everyone any money spent to correct this problem. This unknown or other issue occurred 01/08/2007.

The car involved is a 2006 Honda Odyssey. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 5FNRL38736_. The grille design on the Honda accord 2006 causes a rock to come through the grille area and damage the condensor causing it to fail to blow out cold a/c. This vehicle is practically brand new and because of their design the end user is getting screwed over with vehicle fixtures costing me over $1000 to fix this problem. The condensor needs to be replaced, a diagnostic was done and then labor brings this up to $1000 range. This is ridiculous, because of their design they are not taking responsibility for this and the end user has to pay for this; the dealership says this could happen again anytime and then I would be on the hook for it again. This issue happened on Monday, April 23, 2007.

We own a 2006 Honda Odyssey and a 2004 Honda accord. The 2006 Honda Odyssey's air conditioning stopped working. We took it to the local dealership and were informed that it was a hole in our a/c condenser. We were told it would be around $700 to repair and was not covered by warranty. I discovered that the a/c condenser is exposed at the bottom of the bumper in the opening of the bumper. I proceeded to tell the dealer that this is a design issue and should be taken care of. The dealer told me to contact american Honda because that is out of their hands. I contacted Honda and after two and half weeks they responded back by saying this is a goodwill and they will cover at half at the warranty rate. I agreed after suffering thru 3 weeks of no a/c in the dead of heat. I started doing some research because my concern stayed the same, this is a design flaw and will happen again. To my surprise this is a very common problem with most later model Honda's. The design must be similar in all of the models, because the cr-v, Odyssey, civic, accord and so on are having the same issues. Honda needs to step up to the plate and recall these vehicles and put a fix to the grills so the condensers are better protected. It appears everyone is getting the same story from Honda and when you call they act like you are the first to have this happen, when in fact it is becoming a wide spread problem and costing consumer major dollars. This is my third Honda and probably my last after the way the whole situation is going down. Honda is sticking their head in the sand and hoping to ride the storm out. It appears also that dealerships have been rehearsed on what to tell consumers, because it is a common theme when you read other complaints. The failure date was Jul. 10, 2007.

Once this happenned, it continued everytime the brake was used. The brake did not work as good as it did before, I can notice it took longer to stop. At the dealership, drum surface was recoded. The van had 3/4 of the brake left and the drum just needed a resurfacing coding. . . It only takes one hard brake for the problem to come back all over again. Once back the brake does not holds on the tire like it did previously. I have gone back to the dealership, and they told me the oddessy has a lot of problems with the brake and it is very common between oddessy drives. The problem keepes coming back, and it does not make me any safer because it is a common problem for the oddessy drivers. This unknown or other problem happened on Sep. 20, 2009.

After visiting the dealer I was told that rear motor mount has to be replaced at a cost of $1000. I did research on this issue and it appears that many 2005 and later Odysseys have the same issue which points to a manufacturer defect. Honda is refusing to replace the part even though their representative told me that they are aware of the problem. This problem occurred on Wed., Apr. 6, 2011.

The vehicle having this issue was a 2006 Honda Odyssey. The VIN of this vehicle is 5FNRL38456_. Ac condenser cracked and caused the air conditioner to not function properly. Dealer stated damage due to road debris hitting ac condenser. Honda original design has condenser exposed at front bumper. Dealer repair included new condenser and heavy gauge wire screen to protect condenser from future damage. Clearly Honda knows they have a poor vehicle design and is covertly addressing the issue at customer and insurance company expense. Dealers are encouraging customers to file insurance claims for road damage. Repair cost was $722, with $415 for the condenser. Thankfully or safety was not in jeopardy. Since our Honda Odyssey model year, Honda has changed design to include a think plastic insert into the front bumper to protect the condenser. Van is 2006 with less than 60,000 miles. It is driven mostly in the city. The damage appeared immediately following an oil change at Honda on grand in elmhurst. Prior to the oil change, the van was not leaking any fluids. Post oil change, the condenser started leaking. At first, the dealer thought it was oil leaking. They diagnosed the problem a week later after fluid continued to drip and leave large spots on the driveway. This unknown or other problem happened on 03/01/2011.

The vehicle was a 2005 Honda Odyssey. Crash was involved with this problem. I have a 2004 Honda oddysey. I backed out of my driveway at approximately 5-10 miles per hour and contacted a parked vehicle with the back right corner of my vehcle. I had a child safelty seat loacted on the left of the 3rd row of seats which was tethered to the back left tether attachment on the inside of the bumper. Upon impact, the bolt attaching the tether strap to the bumper came out, basically making the tether useless in a crash. I had the bolt replaced as it was stripped by the impact. There were no injuries since the collision only happened at about 5-10 miles per hour, but I imagine thing would have been much worse in a high speed collision.

I found numerous complaints of this nature on topix. Net. Dealer themselves claimed to get a few per month. Since it is considered road hazard, it is not covered by warranty.

The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) is 5FNRL38645_. We have a 2005 Honda Odyssey w/less than 65k miles on it and just had to replace both the rear and side motor mounts. The repair bill was $1041. 65 plus the labor to diagnose this issue both by leith and bayleaf. The cracked rear motor mount noticed by leith Honda on capital rd. In raleigh, nc. They quoted close to $900 for just the rear motor mount replacement, and they said that the other motor mounts could be broken but that they would have to take the motor out to see. We had bayleaf tire and auto repair repair it because they were recommended to us and their quote was lower. They found that the side motor mount was broken as well. Chris of bayleaf said that they have had Odysseys around the same model year come in for the same issue and had called Honda to tell them about the issue. I have seen plenty of evidence online that this is a design flaw in the motor mounts related to the eco mode (dropping from 4 to 3 cylinders to save fuel) being instituted in the Odysseys in the mid-2000's without a corresponding change to the design of the motor mounts which could not handle the additional vibration.

The 1999-2001 Honda Odyssey roof top carrier crossbars may be unsafe. The roof rack crossbars sold by Honda for this vehicle are not acceptable for use with cargo boxes. This is what many people attach to them. There is no warning on the installation instructions or owners manual warning against use for this purpose. Honda admitted the crossbars might not withstand lift forces from the box and the crossbars could separate from the side rails and damage the vehicle or vehicles following it. Honda said they would offer no remedy, warning or solutions. Some of the major cargo box manufacturers are aware of the crossbars shortcomings and will not warrant their boxes or accept liability for damages caused by the separation of the crossbars, however, this is not always divulged by the salepersons and would most likely not be known if buying a used box. Please make Honda send a waring to all purchasers of the crossbars and include the warning in their owners manuals, advertising litereature and installation/use instructions. Thank you.

The VIN of the car is 2HKRL18641_. I bought this 2001 Honda Odyssey in sept. 2001. In 2007 I had problem with its transmission. The dealer replaced it free with Honda extended warranty in August 2007. In December 2010, about 3 years after getting a new transmission from Honda, the new transmission also went bad. The dealer will not replace it free stating that I am out of warranty at 113,000 miles now and that the new transmission they put does not come with any warranty! the dealer quoted $5,285 for a new transmission. I feel that Honda installed a lemon transmission in my van the second time and should take responsibility for that. This problem occurred on Dec. 20, 2010.

I have a 2000 Honda Odyssey. Two weeks ago, my sliding door sensor went off for no reason. The doors were closed but when the vehicle was placed into drive the alarm in the car would sound as if one of the doors was open. I checked the doors and after a couple of times of opening and closing them, the alarm did not sound. I was due to have the car serviced for its 75,000 mile service so I waited to bring it into the dealership. When I brought the vehicle in for it's routine service, as I do for each scheduled maintenance, I was told that the door switch was the problem and that it would cost $1,100 to fix. I explained that the vehicle was under an extended warranty that I purchased at the time I bought the vehicle. Honda in turn told me that they had called the warranty company (apparently the warranty was not a Honda extended warranty. Although, this is what rosenthal had portrayed it as) about the repair and that it was not covered. They told me that I could call the warranty company to complain if I felt so inclined to do. I called the warranty company and they said that the warranty had expired because of the mileage. The vehicle is just over 75,063 miles. They did not care that the warranty had expired. My question is how can this be a non-recall issue if a number of people have had the same problem. This situation is the exact reason why I purchased Honda's extended warranty. I believe that Honda is responsible for the repair. If I had know the doors on this vehicle would cost that much to fix I would have never purchased that van. This issue happened on 10/12/05.

I bought a 1999 Honda Odyssey in April, 1999. It now has about 13,000 miles. On 11/13/2000, my wife was driving when she started to smell smoke. Within a mile, all engine indicator lights illuminated, the engine quit, and smoke started coming out of the engine compartment. She got out of the van; within a few minutes, the engine was engulfed in flames. The fire department came to extinguish the fire; they say the fire was caused by an electrical short and that there is $18,000 in damage. My insurance company has investigated; they say there is $19,000 in damage -- a total loss. My questions: 1. What's the likely cause of the fire -- a Honda design or manufacturing defect, or a dealer installation error? (I had the local dealer install a Honda cassette deck in November, 1999; I had to take the van back for repairs a few days later when I noticed that certain electrical accessories no longer worked correctly and my battery went dead. ) 2. What leverage do I have to get special treatment (e. G. , a good deal on a new van, temporary transportation) from Honda and the dealer? (my wife is 6 months pregnant, she had our 20-month-old daughter in the van with her; they are fine, but a bystander had to help them get out of the van -- they could have been seriously injured in this incident. ) I have contacted the dealer, who has contacted Honda. Neither wants to provide temporary transportation (my insurance doesn't cover it); the best they've offered is to expedite delivery of a replacement (at least 2-3 more weeks). At this point, I don't know if they'll charge me msrp or give me a discount. This issue happened on Nov. 13, 2000.

The car involved is a 1999 Honda Odyssey. Beginning in 2000, when the car was less than one year old, we have experienced major equipment failures. First, the egr valve malfunctioned; it was eventually repaired at Honda's expense. Next, one of the motors for the side power doors failed. That cost approximately $800 to repair. Then, the transmission failed, and Honda eventually covered the full costs under an extended warranty. For at least four years, we were plagued with an erratic "check engine" light, and sometimes the computer code was inadequate to direct a repair. In 2003 the radiator rotted out, and the replacement/repair cost us $800. In 2004 the catalytic convertor failed, and that replacement/repair cost us $1400. On July 22, 2005, the rear a/c vents failed to cool, and I called for an appointment at our local dealer to have that checked and repaired. The repair was scheduled for July 25, 2005. When I was driving the car on July 23 with the a/c turned on (the front vents continued to cool), the engine died while I was driving at a speed of 45 mph on a local highway. I managed to pull off into a nearby parking lot, and I was able to restart the car after turning off the a/c. It is now at the dealer's shop, and the labor costs alone to determine the cause of the a/c failure will cost more than $350. After inspecting the system for more than three hours July 25, the dealer's mechanic still could not locate the source of the problem. Needless to say, I hate this car! I have had many more problems than I ever expected, and the responses from american Honda and from the local dealer have been disappointing. Neither establishment knows how to relate successfully to customers. This car has been a real lemon, and I am struggling with my decision about what to buy to replace it. Although Honda has a good reputation, I have not found this car to be reliable. In fact, it is a major source of stress in my life, causing me to gnash my teeth when I am driving it, for I have no confidence in it at all. It was Saturday, Jul. 23, 2005 when this unknown or other issue occurred.
