2004 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

problem #3

  • 90,000 miles


Braking is "soft" or brake pedal has to be pushed very low before brakes will engage. I have had this problem for about 2 years and had the brakes checked numerous times and no one can fix it.

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Passenger air bag is turning off frequently. There is always a strong crack when you press the brake. There is a decoloring passenger air bag place. It eats gas if you turn on the back air conditioner. The passenger console had a big vibration. The Odyssey has gone to the dealer more than four times for the same reason but it's never fixed. They said those claims are normal for a model 2004.

Multiple failures. Brakes problem, transmission, rough idle & engine surging, steering column controls and others. The automatic door would not open or close, the transmission did not shift properly and the dealer was unable to duplicate the problem. The brake pedal shuttered, the brakes would catch without being applied. The consumer was told the steering column control switch had a short, however the next day the horn honked and there was an odd noise in the steering column and the interior lights flashed multiple times.
