The rear tire went flat rather suddenly. Honda does not make the camber adjustable (unlike other manufacturers), which leads to inner tire wear. This affects the handling and ability to break. We did not have an accident this time, but I am not comfortable that this won't be the case in the future. Honda does this so that the customers have no choice but to have costly routine maintenance and purchases (new tires). It is shameful.

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • 5,000 miles
The same problem that occurred in Dec 2012 when Honda issued a transmission software update, but only worse. I was driving at approx 18mph and the transmission locked then slipped continuously. It was worse when I was on a hill causing the van to jerk backwards. It continued to occur and when on a flat road I almost lost control of the vehicle because it jerk so hard when accelerating to 20mph. I ended up having the van towed to the dealership who can't duplicate the problem, Honda said they are unaware of the issue. I am afraid to drive the vehicle and it only has 5000 miles on it. This is my 4th Honda minivan in 10 years and this is not typical handling for the vehicle and the dealership is trying to get me to believe... [please try to help so no one gets injured in this vehicle.... thanks,

The contact owns a 2012 Honda Odyssey. While traveling 5- 10 mph, the contact noticed an abnormal sound coming from the front end of the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where the struts were replaced but the failure was not corrected. The current and the failure mileages were 150.
