| ||Model||Odyssey EX|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car?||Obviously the transmission. I have found the sliding doors overly temperamental as well. Until Honda perfects these aspects, I can no longer recommend this vehicle.|
| ||General comments?||I bought my 99 Odyssey EX three years ago and have put 85,000 mostly wide open highway miles on it. In spite of numerous recalls, I have enjoyed the vehicle immensely and was thinking of buying a new model next year. |
That was until last week when my Malfunction Indicator and Traction Control lights suddenly came on while I was driving on the freeway. I took it in for service and was informed that I need a new transmission to the tune of $5588.
Having always had the services done on a timely basis at the intervals recommended in the manual and which often included an inspection of the automatic transmission, I simply cannot see a reason for this failure other than factory defect.
