2005 Honda Odyssey Problems

Electric Sliding Door Issues

There have been some issues reported with the electric sliding doors. Our technicians remind us that proper diagnoses will be necessary to determine the cause of various faults which may occur.

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.

Power seat failure due to detached cable
On some models the power seat can become inoperative when a cable becomes detached. Replacing the cable will fix this issue.

2005 Honda Odyssey Recalls

Front Airbag Inflator Module

This limited regional recall is for vehicles currently registered or first sold in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and equipped with Takata-brand air bag inflators. Upon deployment the passenger airbag inflator could rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will replace the affected airbag inflator modules to correct this concern.

Potential Fuel Leak

The affected vehicles are being recalled because a fuel leak can develop from the area of the fuel pump strainer cover. Parts to permanently repair this concern are not yet available. Honda will first send owners an interim letter, followed by a second letter when the remedy parts become available. Parts are expected to be available beginning in the summer of 2014. Vehicles currently leaking fuel from the pump cover will get a replacement using the part currently available. All recalled vehicles will receive a revised cover once the part becomes available.

Possible Brake Fluid Leak From Master Cylinder

Use of incorrect brake fluid may cause a rubber seal in the rear of the master cylinder to become dry and leak. The leaking fluid will enter the brake booster and may not be visible externally. A loss of brake fluid can reduce braking efficiency, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the affected seal on all master cylinders, leaking or not. This recall is scheduled to begin during December of 2010. The Acura recall number is R52; the Honda Recall Number is R51.

2005 Honda Odyssey Reviews

I purchased the 2005 Honda Odyssey Touring in 2005 and have averaged $12,00.00 per year for maintenance. I have 153,400 miles and I have replaced the PAX tires three times at $1,300.00 each time. I think I am about to replace the tires again. I just finished doing a maintenance summary with Excel and I was surprised how much money I have spent on the Honda van.
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 wo...
