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.

The low beam headlights distance is limited by a horizontal blackness. This is not enough distance to drive safely. Low beam headlight 55W (H11 halagon type, same bulb used for fog lights on these vehicles.. according to triple a these are not safe over 35 mph on a unlit highway. I find the headlight to be very annoying and unsafe by limiting the distance viewed on the road ahead.

Headlights work very poorly. - difficult to see the road when driving at night. When driving at night, it is difficult to see the road when using the low beams. High beams help, but switching back and forth when in traffic is not a safe, or legal, option. The low beam pattern appears to be set too low, particularly on the driver side, and can not be adjusted. Headlights are projector lamp style, so even replacement of bulbs do little to correct, as the primary issue seems to be a poor design. This issue has been ongoing since purchase of new vehicle.

Odyssey 6-cyl

  • 88 miles
My insurance company bought this Honda Odyssey ex 2014 van for me to be modified for handicapped equipment as a replacement. It chose and delivered the van to: Better life mobility centers of riverside 7239 Indiana ave., riverside ca 92504 9516863152, who then disabled my steering column adjustment controls resulting in defective turn signals, horn, lights etc. No notice was given to me of such disabling of these safety equipment and they simply left the control for the "tilt & telescopic steering column" in a plastic bag on the console. Honda cars of corona (888) 568-0582 informed me that no warranty or servicing or diagnosing of this car would be made by Honda because it had been modified for handicapped driving which voided all warranty of any shape or form. It appears that "better life mobility" has not complied with federal regulations in the disabling of my steering column, turn signals, etc. Please investigate this business and their conduct. The total cost of this van was $34,547.53 before modifications and now is unsafe to drive until diagnostic and repair of the steering column, turn signals and related safety equipment. I have driven with hand controls for over 24 years, and have never encountered anything like this..
