The alternator will not charge the battery most of the time. Then I will have sometimes where the alternator will just start working. I have check the fuse. It was good I still changed it. I have had the positive lead cable changed also. I had the alternator checked 3 times before I took it to Honda 1 out of the 3 times I actually took the alternator off the van and brought it to a part store to have it tested on their tester. All them times everyone said it was good. But as soon as I take it to Honda they run the expensive computer test they tell me it is the alternator. I am thinking how can that be? Does anyone have any ideas??

While driving, my battery light came on, indicating the battery was discharging. Had a fairly new battery in but it tested dead. Replaced the battery but the van still won't start. I'm also seeing some smoke and smelling a slight burning odor, even though the car isn't running.
This problem just started yesterday.
Poor gear selection or a delay in gear selection

2005-2010 Odyssey has a poor suspension in all model lines and even Consumer Reports notes this. I have an 08 Odyssey LX and would like to know if I were to swap the EX-L or Touring suspension into my LX would it help it to be more stable yet still have good riding comford? I got 96000+ on the stock spring but 3000 on monroe struts and shocks.Dont like the set up at all, poor control,soft, sway around corners, but If I change every thing I want to stay with all Honda parts because I dont think mix and maching parts on suspensions is a good idea.
Dealership has had my car for 7 weeks. Has misdiagnosed the issue now twice and replaced parts that didn't need to be replaced based on "these are typically the parts that cause the alarm to go off without cause." Now they say they've found a leak that caused the driver's side fuse box to short out and had to replace it.
