Motor mounts got broken and are bad designs from Honda. The cost to repair is very expensive. And it is a safety hazard. Poor quality from Honda.

The van vibrates horribly due to a faulty rear motor mount. It is clearly a default in manufacturing. I was also referred to mention complaint# 10425453.

In the summer of 2009, my 2006 Honda Odyssey developed a strong, foul odor for which no source could be found. I vacuumed the carpet, left containers of baking soda inside, and even threw away the rubber floor mats, thinking they had deteriorated in the summer heat. The odor did not go away. (the car had been garage-kept until around that time.) in 2010, when taking the car for a routine service appointment, I asked the service manager to check for the problem. He wanted to replace the cabin air filter, which I had already done myself. In September, 2011, after hurricane irene, the tailgate hatch would slosh and spill water when opened. This past week, I went to drive the car on an extended trip. When I went to lift the rear seats, which had been folded into the cargo area, to the upright position, I discovered that the seats were covered in mold and rust and were dripping with water. The cargo area carpeting was saturated. Upon researching this problem on the internet, I learned that this has been a problem since at least November, 2010. Besides the heath risks associated with exposure to inhaling mold, the rust may have compromised the integrity of the hardware securing the seats to the floor, to say nothing of the cosmetic damage to the leather of the seats.

I have replaced the both the right and left liftgate struts on our 2006 Honda Odyssey. Now the right replacement strut has failed. That's three failures in under two years. Surely there is a problem here judging from all of the similar complaints. This problem needs to be addressed before someone or someone's child gets seriously injured!

2006 Honda Odyssey excessive vibration from engine when at idle and especially when eco mode engaged or during slow acceleration. Honda dealer states the cause to be a broken motor mount which is a special design and costs over $500 - $600. The van has only 80000 miles but that puts it past warranty. See Honda service bulletin tsb 06-083 for a more detailed report from Honda. The reason I bring this to you is the many web sight blogs with similar issues and Honda's unwillingness to help with costs and or replacements. This could become a serious safety issue if someone can't afford to replace them and if the mounts design is at fault, simple replacement will only result in future failures. If this issue is allowed to persist for too long the other mounts begin to fail and the motor dropping out becomes a real possibility. This should be a recall by Honda and a redesign of the mount should be investigated.

The contact owns a 2006 Honda Odyssey. The contact stated that the heater was not working and she took the vehicle to the dealer. The dealer discovered that the heater pipes contained mice droppings. The dealer cleaned the heater pipes and air way four times, but they could not correct the defect. She found that the pipes were made with a chemical that attracts mice, which contracted an airborne bacteria. Her two children were treated for the bacteria. A report was filed with the manufacturer and they stated that it was due to an environmental issue. They further stated that nothing could be done to remedy the issue. The failure and current mileages were 54,000.

2006 Honda Odyssey. Air conditioning condenser damaged by road debris and required replacing the condenser. Dealer stated damage was caused by road hazard/debris and so was not covered by warranty. The condenser is very exposed on front bottom of vehicle with no protection from flying debris. Similar event has occurred to many owners of 2006 Odyssey. Honda should be held liable/responsible to provide a product to protect the condenser on this model. The 2008 Odyssey comes with a grill covering the condenser. So it is obvious they are aware of the old bad design.
