2004 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

problem #2

Jul 012006


  • Automatic transmission
  • 66,000 miles


: the contact stated there was a metal plate that came loose in the steering wheel column. This failure interfered with the radio controls. The contact expressed concerns that this could cause a problem with the steering capabilities. The dealership was contacted and determined there was a bulletin issued for the plate that instructed dealers to tap the plate back into place. The vehicle was currently at the dealership awaiting repairs.

Odyssey 4WD 4-cyl

2004, Honda Odyssey- steering column busted, vechicle was unable to switch from drive to park, which leaves you in dangerous situation because you have a running vechile that you can not stop. For those of you have a similiar vechile it means the rear passenger doors do not open. This is not a good situation when you have your children in the back of a moving car with no way out. The 1st attempt at a Honda service center was pleasant and the problem was thought to be corrected, however the 2nd time not so good. I was treated very poorly my situation was not handled appropriately. After 5 hours at a service center I had to bring my vechicle to another center simply I am in the process of writing a letter to Honda. I am very concerned about the saftey of my family.
