2006 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

problem #5

Jan 242014


  • Automatic transmission
  • 123,000 miles


Like others here, pedal pulsation led to replacement of pads and rotors -- fronts lasted 2 years.

This is the 3rd replacement in 124000 miles.

Odyssey EX-L 3.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 5,000 miles

I currently have almost 90,000 mi on my van. Have replaced rotors and pads 4 times not including grinding the rotors. Basically will not buy Honda again!! Honda made me believe that the car is durable, but instead you are paying more on the maintenance! (Timing belt, adjust the valve due to noise, brakes horrible!, too many recall items, that tells you!) My transmission also has some whining noise too, when accelerating and decelerating.. Brought that up to the dealer and they said is normal!

I've had many issues with brakes on my Odyssey. Back brakes were squeaking when backing up. Had to replace, mechanic said they got so hot they broke off. The back brakes are once again making the same noise. I had vibration in steering wheel when stopping. Rotors were warped and replaced on the front. 1 year later I have vibration in my steering wheel again. This is my 3rd Honda. I've never experienced anything like this.

Odyssey LX V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles

Honda said this was "unusual wear". They blamed me for it saying I drove the car with the emergency on, I rode the brake, and it was driven in salt. None of this is true. I think Hondas have problems with their rear brakes. My rotors and brakes wore out with just 45K miles. My daughter's CRX wore out with the same mileage. And my daughter-in-law's Civic needed new rear brakes and rotors in the high 30K miles. These should last much, much longer. About 70% of the braking occurs on the FRONT brakes.

I've owned probably 35 cars in my life. I have NEVER had to replace rear brakes anywhere close to 45K miles. I called Honda Customer Relations to complain telling them although I've bought six new Hondas since 1976, I won't buy another. That was fine with them.

Odyssey EX-L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,000 miles

My brakes started grinding about 6 months after I bought the van. There was also a clicking noise coming from the front of the van while I was driving it. We brought it into the Honda dealership and they said the brakes and rotors needed to be replaced. It also had a loose tire rod that had to be tightened. The van only had 12,000 miles on it! They jokingly made a comment that I must be really hard on my brakes. Come to find out later that this had been a big problem with them having to repair or replace alot of these brakes and rotors on these vans. I am waiting to see whats going to happen next. I don't think I will buy another Honda.
