problem #2

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


2008 Honda Odyssey. Consumer states brake pedal depresses. The consumer stated when the brake pedal was depressed in an emergency condition or in a panic stop, the pedal would travel below the accelerator pedal which would cause both pedals to be depressed simultaneously which also caused the vehicle to lurch forward when the brake pedal was released. Also, there was a problem with the steering wheel indicator lighting. There was a very noticeable difference in the consumers vehicle illumination intensity of the steering wheel indicator lights and the rest of the vehicles lighted indicators on the doors and dash fixtures. In the dark of night, out on the open highway, the consumer could easily read the lighted door and dash indicator, but he could not read the faintly lit indicators on the steering wheel. The dealer stated the steering wheel light indicators were the same as all the other Odyssey's on the lot.
