2014 Honda Odyssey engine problems: excessive oil consumption

Excessive Oil Consumption

2014 Honda Odyssey

CarComplaints.com Seal Of This Might Hurt

CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2014 and 2015 Honda Odyssey shows an early trend of transmission problems with clunking/jerking when shifting gears.

Most of these Odyssey transmissions are still under warranty, but so far Toyota generally hasn't been able to diagnose or fix the clunking problem — that's the reason for our low rating. Some owners have reported it was a stuck solenoid, & in a few cases Honda has replaced the entire transmission.

As more of these Odysseys start exceeding the 60,000-mile powertrain warranty limit, buyer beware.

problem #2

May 012017

Odyssey Elite 3.5L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 30,500 miles


engine is burning oil. The light came on and took to dealership and they acknowledge that engine is buring oil and told me to come back after 500 miles. Went today and they said yes looks like engine oil is burining and told me to wait till next light comes on as they need a diagnostic code. Meanwhile I was told to top off oil if I see stick level is low after 300 miles or so. Does not make sense as why shoud I top oil inbetween regular maintenance. I will complain to American Honda and this will be my last honda

Odyssey EX-L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13,000 miles

Our 2014 Odyssey which we bought new in Dec. 2013 has been needing service every 3000-3500 miles due to low oil since we bought it. This is our 4th service in 1.5 years of owning the car and it only has 14000 miles on it. Dealership said it's due to in town driving and it is normal. We have owned several Siennas before, had the same pattern of driving and have never seen the same problem. What's going on? Is it really a normal oil consumption for a new car?
