Gary S., FL (2014 Honda Odyssey EX-L 3.5-L V6)
Premature brake wear

"We bought this vehicle Honda certified and from nearly the beginning the steering wheel would shake when applying the brakes. We never had any grinding but after a couple years of dealing with the warped rotors we had the work done and haven't had any problems since. It was annoying to have this issue since the vehicle was nearly new, we purchased it was only around 14,000 miles"

Hartgraves T., IN (2014 Honda Odyssey EX-L 3.5-L V6)

"brakes needed total replacement at 55000 kms. most of my driving has been in town however, which may skew break wear."

David C., ON (2014 Honda Odyssey LX 3.5-L V6)

"It has had to have brake service twice since 2014. Apparently it’s weight is at the high end of the engineered capability of the brakes, therefore they tend to wear out early. I do not carry heavy loads so it is a design flaw, not me overloading the vehicle."

Anonymous, VA (2014 Honda Odyssey LX 3.5-L V6)

"After I had the pads and rotors replaced one year before, they wore out again. I am very easy on brakes, so it wasn't poor usage."

Anonymous, WI (2014 Honda Odyssey EX 3.5-L V6)

"Brakes very irritating when pulsating, appears to be an ongoing issue with Honda"

Alan M., OH (2014 Honda Odyssey EX-L 3.5-L V6)

"Before 50000 miles I had Honda turn rotors 3 times. Each time the pulsation and vibration returned. I had a private company turn the rotors and have not had difficulty. Honda just couldn't satisfy my requirement. Poor workmanship."

Richard H., SC (2014 Honda Odyssey EX-L 3.5-L V6)

"I replaced the brakes (pads and rotors) at 45,000 miles due to the vibration coming from the brakes. Now at 57,000 miles, I still have the same problem."

Robert C., TX (2014 Honda Odyssey EX-L 3.5-L V6)

"My wife (always the wife's fault right :-D). She did a long decent using the brakes rather than letting he transmission downshift. I just have to replace the front rotors. I know that the 2014 Odyssey's have a problem with this anyway so it's not really her fault. I plan to do a brake job this weekend."

"When we got the car we complained about the shaking when braking, but Honda did nothing, so we replaced the rotors with the recommended replacement. We needed to replace AGAIN one year later and auto parts would only sell the top of the line rotors for our honda, so we knew the rotors were faulty.. Brakes still aren't great, but haven't had to replace since then."

David D., SC (2014 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite 3.5-L V6)

"The front rotors are not built to stand up to the weight of the vehicle and so it develops pulsing and vibrations when slowing down quickly on the highway. This happened even after the first couple of years"

Anonymous, MD (2014 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite 3.5-L V6)

"When traveling down hill in mountainous regions at a 6% incline and using the brakes, the vehicle shakes so bad that it is difficult to hold on to the steering wheel. This has been happening since about 6,000 miles on the car. I have had 3 different Honda service centers examine the brakes and all tell me there is nothing wrong with the brakes. This also happens when I travel long distances in a day, traveling at about 70 miles per hour, and then exiting the highway and applying the brakes. The shaking may not be as bad as when in the mountains but it is still pretty bad."

Daniel B., AZ (2014 Honda Odyssey EX-L 3.5-L V6)

"Front rotors warped at about 22,000 miles causing a front end shimmy when braking at highway speeds. The dealership claimed due to hard braking but I know that wasn't the case, brake pads are still good and Honda came out with a new rotor design with more cooling. They offered to turn the rotors but my research showed that they would warp again in a few thousand miles. Opted to replace with the redesigned rotors at my own expense $450. After writing to Honda they did send me a gift card for $150 but I'm disappointed in Honda for not addressing a design flaw!"

I replaced the rotors, brakes and one of the caliper pins was frozen. I cleaned it up, put honda brakes and rotors on. Stopped perfect after this."

Roger L., PA (2014 Honda Odyssey EX-L 3.5-L V6)

"I was experiencing front wheel shake through the steering wheel when braking at highway speed as though the rotors were warped. Honda turned rotors at 16K and at 27K for the same issue. I had a private shop turn rotors at 37K for the same shaking issue. Right now I have had rotors turned for warping 4 time. Honda dealer wanted to replace rotors and pads at a cost of $520. My response was why should I trust Honda's replacement parts when they couldn't fix original equipment? Parts are bad or technicians don't pay attention. I have a case number from Honda as I registered my complaint. Honda needs a recall."

Rough shifting

"Shifting not smooth. Corrected with software update."

Anonymous, AZ (2014 Honda Odyssey LX 3.5-L V6)

"Shifting gears was very noticeable and sometimes rough, particularly if decelerating and then accelerating shortly after the deceleration. Honda service techs said they did a computer update about 9 months ago and shifting has been normal since that time. Actually, it now shifts better than when it was new."

Michael M., MD (2014 Honda Odyssey Touring 3.5-L V6)

"Terrible problem with shifting. The problem is most noticeable then slowing down - coasting and then accelerating and / or when turning right and accelerating. The transmission is unable to determine which gear to select. At times there is a very loud bang and lurching sensation. I am currently working with a law firm and this is a big litigation. I'm surprised CR has not been mentioning it as I have informed you in previous annual reports. I have been a member of CR since the mid 1980's."

"Corrected by a transmission fluid change. The maintenance schedule does not call for a fluid change but fluid was worn out by 60000. There also is no mechanism for the owner to check the transmission fluid level or visually inspect the transmission fluid condition."

"Rough shifting and transmission computer are related. When slowing down to under 10 mph and then accelerating the transmission would make a clunking noise and a hard shift into gear. It took two trips to the dealer to figure out that there was a memo on this problem, which was caused by the computer. The computer adj was made and it has operated fine since then."

Ellen H., WI (2014 Honda Odyssey EX-L 3.5-L V6)

"From time to time the transmission acts as if it is not fully engaged. It upshifts too early and downshifts too early as well. In those cases, driving seems to be less lively. When the transmission is woking well the ca is very responsive. The dealer can't figure it out. Flushing the transmission seems to help. One funny thing: when the transmission is working well the brakes work better. Figure that one out. Is the transmission somehow connected to the power brake booster?"

What Owners Say

Doors or sliding doors

"The driver's side sliding door doesn't always latch closed and will pop back open, sometimes several times before I finally lean on it as it's closing and then it will latch. It's very annoying but my mechanic wasn't able to replicate it on demand and so it hasn't been fixed yet."

"The doors are manual and they are constantly failing. I've spent over $1700 to repair the two sliding doors. Either the rollers needed replaced or the handles both broke."

Shocks or struts

"During the cold weather months -28 degrees Celsius I developed a very pronounced noise from the front suspension when going over a bump. Turns out it was coming from both front struts, especially in cold temperatures. The noise did not seem as pronounced the warmer it got. To correct the noise issue I needed to have the struts replaced, however the struts were still functioning properly. I replaced the left strut as the noise on the right or passenger side was not as loud, cost approximately $650 + taxes. I was disappointed to have encountered this issue so soon in the ownership of this vehicle, 3.5 years and only 66,000 kilometres. I have a 2009 Honda Accord with 160,000 kilometres and have had no issues with the struts. I contacted Honda Canada about this and asked if they could provide some goodwill on this repair due to the fact that I have bought 2 brand new Honda's from their dealer network and only service them thru this same network and felt that this was premature wear of the front struts. Unfortunately Honda Canada would not come to the table which speaks volumes of how they treated a loyal multiple Honda vehicle owner. Needless to say I was disappointed with the lack of any assistance from them."

They were awesome, diagnosed the problem, and changed the burnt out spark plug charging us only for the plug, only $25.00! Told us this issue should be covered by a recall and that the engine needed work or issue would reccur. Contacted our local dealer and our van is a 2014 and not covered by recall, only up to 2013 were covered. Our van actually came off the line in late 2013. They Looked up our vin # to, and was supposedly manufactured after the problem had been fixed. Just had to replace spark plug again 8 months later, we are trying to avoid a $5,000 engine repair! Will not buy Honda again as the car had under 100,000 km and needs it’s engine repaired and Honda will not cover it."

Transmission Major

Transmission rebuild or replacement, torque converter, clutch replacement.

What Owners Say

Torque converter

"At about 70,000 miles, a hissing noise would occasionally come from the area ahead of the driver's feet. It only occurred going up hills and at a very specific set of circumstances. The vehicle was taken to the dealer and the transmission was flushed and the software updated with no noticeable effect. The vehicle was in the shop again at about 95,000 miles and the issue could not be identified. The vehicle was returned to the dealer at about 99,000 miles and the problem was identified as the torque converter. Our third party extended warranty company (Fidelity) decided to replace the transmission instead of just the torque converter. They also agreed to pay for the rear seal to be replaced as well as pay for all of the fluids. We are not overjoyed about the torque converter, but we could not be happier with Fidelity and the treatment we have received."

"As previously reported - there appears to be a problem with torque converter and software when the vehicle is slowing down and then accelerating at low speed. For example approaching a red light which then turns green and a driver accelerates and the transmission doesn't know which gear to choose and there is a large lurch or banging sound. Similarly, slowing down and making a right and then accelerating."

"Judder from torque converter lock-up clutch, service bulletin 16-060. Judder is felt between 20-60mph. Honda stated that they have a fix and flushed the transmission fluid 3 times and updated the computer. Ultimately the judder doesn't happen as often but it still occurs. Honda deems it fixed and that no long term issues will occur."

"There is a service bulletin that the dealer did not tell me about. But they did the work after I brought it to their attention. "Torque Converter Judder" is experienced if the trans fluid is bad due to heat degredation. Solution was flush and refill trans 3 times (11 quarts used) to the cost of ~$300"

Transmission rebuild or replacement

"On several occasions the transmission started manifesting problems while still under warranty. The dealer/service department indicated that it needed a software upgrade that would fix it. After 2 different attempts to repair with upgrades, the dealer/service contacted Honda directly with the severity of the problem and authorized a new transmission replacement."

"We have experienced a noticeable hard shifting, nearly halting of the vehicle while ascending hills on a routine basis. Our local Honda dealership replaced the transmission fluid to help reduce/resolve the issue, but their body language and spoken word suggested there was no real fix for this issue. When we researched the issue, we noticed that Honda has had this issue with Odyssey's for many years now, yet they appear to not be in a hurry to permanently resolve the issue"

Oil leaks

"Car had an oil leak that destroyed the alternator and drained the battery causing the car to stop while being driven! Two months later a failed oil sensor provided a signal that the car should not be driven. Six months later car had another oil leak that was caught before it caused damage but was expensive to fix."
