2005 Honda Odyssey Review:
Initially really enjoyed the vehicle for traveling.
Around 45k miles the power steering pump made noise. Dealer said no problem found. Took in back in the Spring, still no problem found. Excessive steering effort at low speed. PS pump was shot, fluid was black, no problem found?? Changed pump, pressure lines, now the PS rack is leaking. Dealer now wants $1100 to fix that while leaking all over my driveway and garage. IF they fixed it the first time we brought it in the rack would have been fine.
At 55k miles has a spark plug blow out of the cylinders after retuning from a 30 hour road trip. At least we made it home. Did not take it to dealer, they obviously demonstrated they can't diagnose anything. Now only about 60k miles.
Last Honda after owning 5 of them. I have worked on this vehicle more than the last 6 I owned. This vehicle drives no where near as nice as my Chevy pickup....sad.
Now the tranny has a weird vibration at 45 mph, a shudder that goes away. What next??
