2012 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.

Vibration When Braking Due to Rotor Problem

The front brake rotors can warp and cause a vibration when braking. The rotors will need to be machined or in cases where they are worn to thin, replaced to correct this issue.

Noise From Front Suspension Due to Worn Stabilizer Links

A knock or clunk type noise may be noted from the front suspension over bumps. This is can caused by worm stabilizer (sway) bar links. Replacing both stabilizer bar links will commonly repair this issue.

2012 Honda Odyssey Recalls

Shifter May Move Without Depressing Brake Pedal

The shift interlock system is designed to prevent the shifter from being moved out of the park position unless the brake pedal is depressed. These vehicles are being recalled because during sub-freezing temperatures, the interlock mechanism may be slow to operate. The could allow the shifter to be moved from the park position when it should not be allowed to do so. As a result the vehicle could roll unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will install an updated shift interlocking mechanism to correct this concern.

The Airbag System May Not Perform as Designed

During manufacturing, some of the metal rivets used to secure components of the driver's airbag may not have been installed. A missing rivet could alter the performance of the airbag during deployment, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will inspect the driver's airbag module and replace it if necessary.

Possible Loose Nut in Right Front Suspension

A retaining nut for the right front lower suspension damper bolt may not have been tightened correctly during vehicle assembly. As a result, the nut may loosen over time. If the nut were to loosen, the front hub assembly would then be attached by only one bolt. This would allow the wheel assembly to shift to an extreme inward angle, resulting in loss of steering and increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will repair the vehicles as necessary to correct this concern.

2012 Honda Odyssey Reviews

Great mini van. Only have 4000 miles on it but have taken it on a 1000 mile trip. Ran great. The suspension is much stiffer than our old 2002 mini van but that makes it handle all the better.
