2004 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

problem #4

May 242013

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • 125,000 miles


The transmission failed upon entering the freeway. Vehicle suddenly lost power and forced to pull over. Almost rear ended by other cars also entering the freeway. Honda Odyssey are known to have transmission problems and this body style 1999 to 2004 are defective. From my readings a large quantity of the transmissions failed at 80,000 so at least we made it to 125,000 miles. I regularly changed the transmission fluid. Spent $3200 at aamco getting it fixed.

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.
