Honda Odyssey 2010 EX...WORST VEHICLE IN 35 YEARS!
I am posting this message in the hopes of helping all those consumers considering buying or leasing a new or used Honda Odyssey.
Within the first month of driving the suspension was so poor that upon inspection by Honda's rep. it was decided to replace the entire suspension on all four wheels. This should have been the sign that I made a very poor choice in leasing the Honda, but I thought perhaps this is an isolated issue and my luck would change.
Since then and during the three past three years, I have had transmission failure, torque converter failure, ECO failure, Tire Pressure Monitoring System failure, Traction Control Failure....numerous electrical issues. The latest being that the vehicle just won't start and appears as though the battery is dead. Yet after waiting 10 to 20 minutes and jumping the battery, it starts as if the problem never occured. I have had the alternator and battery tested and both function properly. It is as though the vehicle is haunted.
I have had cars and trucks and estimate at least 20 vehicles during the past 35 years and this Honda Odyssey is by far the worse. What makes the matter most troubling is that Honda and its dealer network are convinced this is the best vehicle since sliced bread and refuse to listen to a consumer's complaint, or for that matter, give it much merit.
My second most problematic vehicle a 1998 Range Rover at least had a supportive dealer network that recognized the vehicle has issues and some are made like crap. With that said, they at least make an attempt to satisfy you by offering free loaners...ride to and from one's office, and honest service managers that truly explain that some vehicles are made crappy and some are perfect. You will NEVER find a Honda Service Manager or Adviser to admit the Odyssey is a piece of crap or that a consumer could have purchased one by assemblers that were out to lunch.
Please take my advice and and by another minivan. The Honda dealer in my area uses Eneterprise Rental Car and my rental was either a Dodge Caravan or Town & Country which was a dream compared to our Honda Odyssey.
