Complaint corrected by Honda corporate. Strong gas smell on Honda Odyssey 2005. Was told I had a cracked fuel pump and repair was $565. I saw the other complaints online so I call Honda corporate via Honda.com and complained and told them I did not have the money. They said take it to a Honda dealer to verify the problem, and they gave me a reference number. And said they will see if I can get an out of warranty fix as a good will jester. Today I dropped the car off to hoehn Honda in carlsbad and the repair was approved for free as a goodwill jester, and Honda is also fixing a seatbealt since the sr light was on and airbag. I am so thrilled. I encourage others to call corporate an let them know that you have seen other complaint on this site, that are to be investigated. Happy day, today!!!

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • 65,000 miles
A strong gasoline smell in the cabin and on the outside of the 2005 Honda Odyssey van. I called Honda in October about it they said take to dealer to check fuel relay switch, dealer said it was okay, but to diagnose the smell they have to charge me $120. I did not have the money so I had to leave. Been sick with dealing cancer appointments and, had no time or money to deal with car, finally I took it on 12/6/2016 to a private mechanic for only $40 and they said it had a crack on top of the fuel pump casing. But the whole fuel pump had to be repaired and was going to cost $563. They advised me not to drive it around, so I contacted Honda and they said if I take it back to the dealer they might help me with the repair, because they don't want the car to blow up while I am driving it. I inquired as to a recall for this problem and the service adviser stated that she was not aware of any recall notice for the fuel pump problem, but would see if I could get out of warranty help, I told her that I have read online and had printed out so many people stating their 2005 Honda having this same problem. I would like to have this investigated for a recall. Just because I don't have the money to fix this faulty casing which is a common problem, I should not have to risk mine or anyone else's life. I will repost the outcome, Honda gave me a reference number and said someone should contact me by the end on 12/09/2013 to let me know if the can help with the cost.

After filling the gas tank; a gasoline smell filled the cabin and continued to exist until the fuel pump was replaced by the Honda service department. I inquired as to a recall for this problem and the service adviser stated that he was not aware of any recall notice for the fuel pump problem. A crack was discovered on the top of the device. Would Honda be responsible for the replacement of this failed part?

Noticed a strong gas smell outside of the vehicle and a faint one inside. Took it down to the dealers and the said it had a crack in the top of the fuel pump. Honda covered 1/2 of the service charge but not the entire cost since the car was out of warranty. Honda paid half in "goodwill".

The contact owns a 2005 Honda Odyssey. The contact stated that the vehicle failed to start. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer and the fuel pump was replaced however, the repair did not completely correct the problem and the dealer had to replace the fuel pump relay. The contact then located NHTSA campaign id number:07V097000 (fuel system, gasoline), but the manufacturer stated that the vehicle was not included in the recall campaign. The VIN was not available. The failure mileage was 90,000 and the current mileage was 95,000.

The contact owns a 2005 Honda Odyssey. The contact stated that a strong odor of fuel emitted outside of the vehicle near the rear passenger's tire. The driver noticed the cracked fuel filter unit had caused fuel to spray out and filled up the ridge around the fuel filter system whenever starting the ignition. The vehicle was towed to an authorized dealer where the fuel filter, fuel pump wire harness and three O-rings were replaced. The sending unit was included in the replacement. The manufacturer was notified of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 45,444..... updated 10-17-13 updated 10/30/2013

The vehicle engine is shutting off with no warning. There have been approximately 6 instances of the vehicle being operated and then the engine will cut off. The first incident occurred in a parking lot when in reverse. There have been 3 incidents at low speed, while making turns, and 2 incidents while traveling at speed (one at 40 mph and one at 70 mph). The vehicle has been taken to the dealer on 3 occasions but the dealer has been unable or unwilling to address the issue because there are no codes sent to the on-board computer. The most recent incident on 3/6/2011 was while traveling at 70 mph on the interstate highway. We referred the service writer to NHTSA campaign id numbers 05V132000 and 07V097000 but he was unwilling to consider that our issue was related to either of these previously noted failures.

Have a 2005 Honda Odyssey van, it hesitates, or has a flat spot when accelerating at stop sign or traffic light. Have had trouble soon after purchase, and does it way to often. Had a 2002 Odyssey which did the same thing so I replaced it with the 2005 and still have the same problem. Yet the Honda dealer tells me they have had no other reports about such a problem. At present it is at the dealers. They called me yesterday, and said they could not find the problem. I asked them to keep it a while longer and drive it and maybe they could find the problem.
