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.

2014 Honda Odyssey Owner Comments

problem #3

Nov 302016


  • 38,000 miles


The steering wheel shakes when braking at highway speeds. This started at about 30,000 miles. I took the car to the dealer, and they immediately said I needed the brakes resurfaced before they even drove the car. This tells me they are aware of a recurring issue. At this point it was out of warranty at 38,000 miles because I had already purchased brand new tires thinking that was the problem. I had them align the tires that day, and the shaking did not go away. Honda needs to take responsibility and recall faulty brakes. They should not need costly repairs at this low mileage.

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..
