problem #3

Jul 152018

Odyssey EX-L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8 miles


We purchased the car three days ago. When we brought it home that day, there was a problem with the lock. When we used the key fob, it wouldn't unlock the driver's side lock. We had to use the key and manually open it. Once the door was opened, we couldn't lock or unlock it using the button on the door. The next 30 times we tried to open the door or use the lock/unlock button on the door on the inside or use the key fob, it was the same thing - the lock would not work. Then on the 31st time, it did and it continued to work for about 12 hours. Then it started happening again so I scheduled an appointment. It didn't work all morning until I got to the dealer. Then it started working again. The problem is intermittent and the dealer says that they can't even look at it unless it is actively happening because it won't show up on their diagnostics if it's working. I think there is a wire loose. I'm SO frustrated that my BRAND NEW car is possibly defective.

Car starts intermittently through the day, I guess we need to ask this 2018 HONDA ODYSSEY, when she feels like driving. Wife again call me that the van locked her out. Of course after a long day at work I have nothing better to do than to go and try to help my wife get in her brand new HONDA, good thing I'm still driving a strong 1990 TOYOTA CAMRY, to find out that the car won't budge to let her in, after awhile trying, decided not to camp around the car and drove wife back home preoccupied and concerned.

This is just great, brand new 2018 HONDA ODYSSEY, tried once again to open van. But after trying different things I saw that only lights were coming on inside and out, but the car could not be opened, not even after the towing personnel tried. Had no other alternative but to have it towed back to the dealer.
