2005 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

problem #8

Small rock hit the air conditioner condenser on my 2005 Honda Odyssey (with approximately 12,000 miles), causing a hole in the condenser. The condenser is located just behind the front license plate and is unprotected. Went immediately to Honda dealer when I saw and smelled freon coming from the front of the van. Paid around $800 to replace the condenser. Dealer said the repair was not covered under warranty even though the condenser is not protected because of a poor design.

A/C stop working. Honda dealer stated that a rock hit condenser which will now need to be replaced at a cost of $1000. Contacted my auto insurance provided and received approval by adjuster to have a new condenser put in.

We have a 2005 Honda Odyssey with 22K miles. Air condition stopped working last weekend. Took the car to dealer and was told a tiny stone hit the ac condenser. The damage is not covered by manufacture warranty. Repair cost is over $800. The damage in fact is caused by poor design and defective condenser. There have been many complaints on ac condenser problem across almost all Honda vehicles. Please investigate the issue and protect consumer right.

Air conditioner on 2005 Honda Odyssey went out. Dealer claimed condenser has hole due to road damage. I found numerous complaints of this nature on topix.net. Dealer themselves claimed to get a few per month. Since it is considered road hazard, it is not covered by warranty. Dealer cost to fix is ~$800. Though not a safety hazard, it certainly seems to be a design problem in that Honda is not sufficiently protecting this component.

2005 Honda Odyssey ex while driving at 45 mph and above, loud whistling sound is heard in the van. Noise is unbearable and distracting on long drive. This is serious issue distracting driver's attention while on long drive. Honda dealership have no solution for this. American Honda should be forced to resolve this asap.

I have a 2004 Honda oddysey. I backed out of my driveway at approximately 5-10 miles per hour and contacted a parked vehicle with the back right corner of my vehcle. I had a child safelty seat loacted on the left of the 3rd row of seats which was tethered to the back left tether attachment on the inside of the bumper. Upon impact, the bolt attaching the tether strap to the bumper came out, basically making the tether useless in a crash. I had the bolt replaced as it was stripped by the impact. There were no injuries since the collision only happened at about 5-10 miles per hour, but I imagine thing would have been much worse in a high speed collision.
