2005 Honda Odyssey Recalls (Recent)

Body, Interior & Misc., August 30, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Water may enter the frontal impact sensors because they may not have been sealed properly in manufacturing. If water enters the sensor, corrosion can occur and the sensor can short circuit internally. The SRS warning lamp will illuminate if this happens and the front airbags may not deploy in a crash, which can increase the risk of injury. Dealers will replace the front impact sensors free of charge. The recall began August 30, 2005. The Honda recall number is P80.

2005 Honda Odyssey Reviews

front wheel wear and tear on right side of the wheel. In 5 years 5 sets.
We allign , rotate and all Honda keeps saying there is no problem.
Also had to change the transmission for a common jumping at 40 MPH. The 6 to 3 cylinder goes off also, after 5 years this car is starting to give big headaches

I've owned my Odyssey for over a year now (bought it used.) It's a great van! I wouldn't want any other minivan over the Odyssey.

It's great for anyone with several children. There's lots of room and it's great for traveling. My only critisms are that there can be a little road noise in the interior (but nothing horrible) and although it gets respectible gas milage for a large vehicle, it would always be nice to get more MPG.

Overall, it's very stylish and reliable, well built, and lots of convenient features.

On my maiden voyage in my Odyssey, a trip through Hersey, PA. the transmission began to slip and I wasn't able to maintain a speed greater than 40 mph. With just under 4000 miles on my new van, I was most unimpressed with the fact that I had to walk down the highway with my three year old to a pay phone to have a flatbed truck haul the Odyssey to the garage. With 3782 miles on the odometer, the transmission failed. As I am from out of state, actually, out of country, I had to pay for the repairs in advance. After the replacement transmission was installed, three days later, I was informed that I would have to "break -in" the transmission like I did when I initially purchased the van. I was on my fourth day of a seven day trip, and only half of the way to Richmond, VA. when I had to return home.

I had lost all confidence in this van and 6 months later, I sold the Odyssey and the headache to someone else. I purchased a Chevy Uplander, not my usual brand but the price was excellent, and I haven't had an issue since. It rides a little more like a truck but then it also keeps going passed the gas stations.

I have had this van for about (30) day's and I really like it. So far so good!!!
