Honda Odyssey Problem Report
Honda Odyssey Various Automatic Transmission Issues May Develop
Erratic operation of the transmission, which may or may not be accompanied by illumination of dashboard warning lights, would indicate internal transmission faults. Replacement of the transmission is generally required to correct this issue.
Transmission problem light illuminated. Dealer told me I needed to replace Transmission quoted $3000. Went to another dealer service man suggested it needs a pressure switch on the 4th gear, same problem allegedly with Acura's. Had the pressure switch installed, cost me $220.62 Car still running well, has 187,800 miles and is now going in for new motor mounts. Love this car however, have had difficulty finding dealer who seems to know solutions to problems. - car geek.
Automatic transmission "clunks" when shifting into 2nd gear. We have to "baby" it very carefully when starting. Problem has been there for two years and seems to be getting worse. Have not had it repaired. - terrydny

Transmission failed spectacularly. No warning in advance. Never used van for towing or any sort of aggressive driving. Even though I've been disappointed with the 2000 Odyssey due to many mechanical issues, Honda really impressed me by replacing the transmission at zero cost to me. They know when they screw up a design and seem to try to make things right. (This was the 1st model year for the new Odyssey) - Visitor

Rough, hesitant 1-2 and 2-3 shift as if motor cuts out. Worked perfect, no problems, then one day the tranny no longer shifted smooth. Will talk to local Honda dealer tomorrow. - Visitor
Dealer estimated $6700 in So Cal. for new transmission. Said the low milage contributed to the problem since it has not even hit 90k in 12 years so less maintenance has been done. - Visitor
