2001 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

problem #4

Mar 312003

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 49,432 miles


I drive a 2001 Honda Odyssey and I have 50,000 miles. Now I have to replace my gas tank and alternator. When I call the manufacture they say I had to drive the car to a dealer my car was already at a repair shop. Tank was broken in half and all my gas was leaking. I had been driving around for who knows how long with this problem I drive four children at all times. When I was going to purchase this van, I did a lot of research and I choose this vehicle because it was the most reliable car. I am very upset with the fact that I have to put so much money into this car to replace parts that should still be in great condition.

A thumping sound eminates from inside the fuel tank when it is full to half full. The service department at the dealer where the vehicle was purchased was notified. I was informed that this is not an isolated incident. Many other Odyssey owners have expressed concerns about this. Honda claims there is no problem with the vehicle as this is part of the design. A vehicle in this price range should not have annoyances of this sort.

This happens mostly when the vehicle is started from a standstill to move out of the driveway, for example. Once underway, the problem is no longer noticeable. I have contacted the service department at the dealership where the vehicle was purchased. I was told that this is a normal occurance in this vehicle as it was designed that way. Honda says there is no need for concern. I feel this is a concern. I purchased this vehicle after many months of research and feel that I was not fully informed by the literature that has been published. No where was it written that this was a common occurence in this vehicle. Had it been, I may have considered a different vehicle to suit my needs. No safety defect described.

Fuel tank is knocking around and consumer can hear fuel splashing inside tank while driving. Dealer notified, and informed consumer that was normal, and all Odyssey do that. The consumer believes the vehicle had defect and was unsafe to drive.
