Summary of Complaint

AFTER DRIVING A FEW MILES UNDER NORMAL CONDITIONS WE PARKED OUR MINIVAN IN OUR PARKING SPOT BEHIND OUR HOUSE. WHILE GETTING OUT OF THE MINIVAN THERE WAS AN ODOR AND A TINY BIT OF SMOKE FROM THE ENGINE COMPARTMENT. AFTER WAITING A COUPLE MINUTES THE SMOKE SEEMED TO GO AWAY. WE LEFT THE MINIVAN PARKED AND ABOUT 10-20 MINUTES LATER IT STARTED ON FIRE AND WE RECEIVED A CALL FROM OUR NEIGHBORS THAT THE FIRE DEPARTMENT HAD BEEN CALLED AND THEY WERE PUTTING OUT THE FIRE. I AM UPLOADING A PICTURE OF THE BURNT MINIVAN AND THE LAST SERVICE RECORD FOR A REGULAR OIL CHANGE ON 12/29/2018

Summary of Complaint

ON AUGUST 9, 2015, WE WERE DRIVING HOME FROM VACATION FROM CEDAR POINT, OHIO TO PITTSBURGH, PA. THIS IS ABOUT A 200 MILE TRIP. THE VEHICLE RAN SMOOTHLY THE ENTIRE TRIP UNTIL I LEFT THE TURNPIKE OF DRIVING 60-70 MILES PER HOUR AND THEN BEGAN DRIVING ON A ROAD WITH A 40 MPH SPEED LIMIT. ALL OF A SUDDEN I WAS AT A RED LIGHT WAITING IN TRAFFIC. AS SOON AS THE LIGHT TURNED GREEN, I PRESSED THE ACCELERATOR. WE BEGAN ACCELERATING TO 25 MILES PER HOUR BUT KNEW SOMETHING WAS WRONG. MY CAR WOULD NOT LEAVE FIRST GEAR. THE GAUGE ON THE DASHBOARD WENT FROM 1-7 GEAR BUT NOTHING HAPPENED. I WAS IN THE PASSING LANE TRAVELING 15-20 MILES PER HOUR IN A 40MPH ZONE. I THEN PROCEEDED TO CHANGE LANES WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN THE ENTIRE CAR JUMPED AS IF IT HAD A MIND OF ITS OWN AND BEGAN TO ACCELERATE. THE CAR BEGAN DRIVING FASTER BUT NOT ANY FASTER THAN 40 MPH. AGAIN, ALL WE COULD HEAR WAS ROOOOOOOM AND THE DASHBOARD INDICATOR LOOKED LIKE WINDSHIELD WIPERS GOING FROM LEFT TO RIGHT. THE CAR WOULD NOT LEAVE 2ND GEAR. THIS CONTINUED TO HAPPEN OVER AND OVER AGAIN AT EACH RED LIGHT. SINCE THIS WAS A SUNDAY, THE SERVICE CENTER WAS CLOSED. IT WASN'T UNTIL WEDNESDAY THAT THE DEALERSHIP WAS ABLE TO TAKE A LOOK AT MY VEHICLE. SINCE NO SENSORS INDICATED A PROBLEM, THEY STATED THERE WAS NOT A PROBLEM AND THERE WAS NOTHING THEY COULD DO. I AM NOT FABRICATING THIS INCIDENT ONE BIT AND AM AFRAID OF THIS HAPPENING AGAIN BUT HAVING A DIFFERENT OUTCOME. IF I EXPERIENCED THIS PROBLEM AND THE DEALERSHIP DISMISSED ME BECAUSE A SENSOR DID NOT INDICATE A PROBLEM, WHAT DOES IT TAKE FOR A SENSOR TO TRIGGER? THIS IS A LEASED VEHICLE OF 1 MONTH AND I AM VERY CONCERNED OF IT HAPPENING AGAIN OR WORSE. I AM A SINGLE MOTHER OF 3 AND SHOULD NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THE SAFETY OF MY CHILDREN AND MYSELF IN A 1 MONTH OLD VEHICLE WITH LESS THAN 2,000 MILES.

Summary of Complaint

The Spool Valve leak oil onto the alternator causing the battery not be recharged and the car powering off and shutting down on the highway. This happened on my way from Kansas City Kansas. With the electrical unit completely shut down due to oil leak from the spool valve that caused the alternator to short circuit, my car slowed down from 65 mph to a halt in less than 10 seconds. Luckily enough I was at an exit and hence maneuvered the car to safety. Had I been on a bridge or narrow road with no shoulder, it could have led to potentially deathly situation. Took My car to a Honda dealer in davenport, where I was told the cause was a spool valve leak that is very common with Honda Odysseys built from 2010 to 2018. The issue was not inspected by the police nor my insurance. There was no warning other than my battery light that came on the dash board. The light came on 20 minutes prior to the car shutting down.

Summary of Complaint

The driver side sliding door cable broken all of a sudden When we took to dealer (( tamaroff honda southfield Michigan)and we were shocked to know that the cable cannot be replaced and the entire set - with Motor should be replaced costing 1200 The cable as I see is very thin and my first impression is it's not strong enough that cannot with stand the openings and closings which we do/have to do on a daily basis besides it's connected to a motor which is completely inside the rear side and complex to reach out and to fix a cable we are shelling 1000+ dollars We hardly had any wear and tear on the vehicle as in 6 years we drove less than 50k miles this seems to be a practically functional and mechanical issue which is not qualitatively made , obviously looses it's strength on the normal daily use. This broken cable not only stops the door movement but also will alarm constantly when the van is in drive which forces the customer to shell out huge money only to replace the cable. I strongly believe this is a quality issue which needs a better way of mechanism with quality Opened Case #12287637 with Honda on 06/14/2021 and when I haven't received reply, called them and the case manager abruptly denied any sought of fix coverage ( partial also) stressing the point that the vehicle is out of warranty.

Summary of Complaint

The van shifts very odd when going forward. It doesn’t shift smooth from 2-3 gear and it’s not just our van my parents have the exact same year and model and it does it in theirs as well! I have read many complaints online about this but I don’t know if it’s the motor or the transmission but something is wrong with it. Being that we have literally 2 of the same year and model vans I can’t see where this is a one off deal. I think there has to be something to it.

Summary of Complaint

TPMS WARNING LIGHT (ERROR) CAME ON, EVEN THOUGH ALL TIRE PRESSURES WERE EXACTLY AS SPECIFIED BY HONDA. WHEN THE TPMS ERROR OCCURS, THE VEHICLE STABILITY CONTROL CANNOT BE TURNED OFF, AND MY VEHICLE COULD NOT MOVE FROM A SMALL SNOWBANK (FEBRUARY 2020.) MY OLDER 2006 ODYSSEY'S STABILITY CONTROL WAS NOT AFFECTED BY ANY TPMS ERRORS SINCE IT DIDN'T HAVE THE SYSTEM, SO I COULD TURN OFF THE STABILITY CONTROL AND EASILY DRIVE OUT OF SLIPPERY OR SNOWY AREAS. I LIVE IN MAINE AND THIS PROBLEM CAUSES POTENTIALLY SERIOUS ISSUES (BEING STUCK IN SNOW THAT IS NORMALLY EASY TO NAVIGATE IN WHEN VEHICLE STABILITY CONTROL IS OFF.) THERE WERE TWO SPECIFIC INSTANCES I CAN RECALL: 1) MY VEHICLE WAS PARKED ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD, WITH THE RIGHT-SIDE TIRES 3-4 INCHES INTO THE SNOWBANK; 2) MY VEHICLE WAS PARKED IN A GRAVEL PARKING LOT WITH SOME ICE UNDERNEATH. THIS PROBLEM COULD LEAD TO A DANGEROUS SITUATION WHEN THERE IS ANY TRAFFIC AND I NEED TO PUSH OR SHOVEL THE CAR OUT, WHICH WOULD NOT BE NEEDED IF I COULD SIMPLY TURN OFF THE VEHICLE STABILITY CONTROL SO POWER COULD BE TRANSMITTED TO ALL FOUR TIRES IN THIS INSTANCE. "LOCKING OUT" THE VSC BECAUSE OF A TPMS ERROR (NOT BECAUSE OF LOW AIR PRESSURE) CAN CAUSE A DANGEROUS SITUATION IN MAINE. NOTE: DATE OF FEB 8, 2020 IS APPROXIMATE FOR ONE INCIDENT (PARKING AREA), CAN'T REMEMBER THE OTHER INCIDENT'S DATE.

Summary of Complaint

REAR PASSENGER SLIDING DOOR POWER SYSTEM FAILED CAUSING THE DOOR TO BE STUCK IN THE OPEN POSITION ON 2 OCCASIONS. THE DRIVER'S SIDE REAR SLIDING DOOR HAS ALSO DONE THE SAME. THE CAUSE IS THE NYLON ROLLERS ON THE DOOR WEAR OUT AND CAUSE THE DOOR TO PULL UNEVENLY WHICH IN TURN CAUSE PULLEY SYSTEM AND CABLING TO PULL AT AN UNNATURAL ANGLE IN THE MECHANISM/DRIVE MOTOR CAUSING THE DOOR TO BE INOPERABLE. THIS CAUSES THE DOOR TO NOT BE ABLE TO BE OPENED OR CLOSED IN THE IMMEDIATE INSTANCE WHICH THIS HAPPENS. THIS CAUSES THE VEHICLE TO BE UNDRIVABLE UNTIL THE CABLES ARE CUT ALLOWING THE DOOR FREE FLOW ALNG THE TRACK MANUALLY WITHOUT RESTRICTION. AT A LATER DATE AND TIME, THE NYLON ROLLERS HAVE WORN OUT TO THE EXTENT THAT THE PASSENGER SIDE REAR DOOR HAS BECOME UNEVEN IN THE TRACK MAKING THE DOOR INOPERABLE AT ANY TIME AS THE DOOR IS UNABLE TO BE OPENED COMPLETELY. THIS IS BOTH AN ANNOYANCE THAT ONLY THE DRIVER REAR DOOR IS OPERATIONAL AS WELL AS A SAFETY HAZARD CAUSING THE ONLY EXIT OF THE REAR OF VEHICLE TO BE INTO THE TRAFFIC SIDE OF THE VEHICLE WHEN STOPPED ON A ROAD, SCHOOL DROP-OFF, PARKED ALONG A CURBSIDE, ETC. THIS IS AN ONGOING AND KNOWN ISSUE TO HONDA, WHICH HAS A HIGHLY PRICED REPLACEMENT PROCESS IN ORDER TO CORRECT THIS ISSUE WHICH INCLUDES REPLACING THE ROLLERS WITH METAL ROLLERS AS WELL AS A NEW LOGIC BOARD AND A NEW MOTOR TO REPLACE THE FAILED SYSTEM.

Summary of Complaint

THE HONDA ODYSSEY 2015 EX MODEL DOESN'T SEEM TO ALLOW THE PASSENGER TO OPEN AND EXIT FROM THE REAR DOOR IN CASE OF EMERGENCY WHEN THE FOUR SIDES DOORS ARE NOT ACCESSIBLE. THE MORE ADVANCED VERSION EX-L HAS AN AUTOMATIC POWERED DOOR INSTALLED, SO THIS IS NOT A MAJOR ISSUE. I DON'T KNOW IF THERE IS A MANUAL BACKUP OPTION TO OPEN WHEN THE POWER IS DOWN. AS OF NOW, I CAN NOT FIND ANY LEVER FOR A TRAPPED PASSENGER TO OPEN THE DOOR TO ESCAPE FROM THE INSIDE. I DIDN'T REALIZE THIS UNTIL I WAS TRAPPED WHEN MY CAR PARKED ON A VERY CLOSED, TIGHT, AND NARROW PARKING SLOT, AND ALL 4 SIDE DOORS WERE NOT ACCESSIBLE. I REALIZED THERE IS NO WAY TO ESCAPE FROM THE REAR EXCEPT TO BREAK THE REAR WINDOW. I THINK THERE NEEDS TO BE A SAFETY MECHANISM THAT ALLOWS THE TRAPPED PASSENGER TO OPEN THE REAR DOOR FROM THE INSIDE WITHOUT NEEDED TO BREAK THE WINDOW, WHICH CAN COMMONLY OCCUR. IN CASE OF A MAJOR CATASTROPHE, IT WOULD BE THE PASSENGER UNFORTUNATE DOOM. I HOPE HONDA WOULD SOON LOOK INTO INSTALLING AN ESCAPE ROUTE FROM THE REAR DOOR.

THE NEXT MORNING WE CAME OUT AND THERE WAS A 5"X5" SECTION OF THE PAINT JUST PEELED OFF AND LAYING ON THE GROUND IT PEELED ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE BASE COLOR (PERHAPS PRIMER LAYER). REALIZING THIS WAS CLEARLY A DEFECT WE QUICKLY DID OUR RESEARCH AND REALIZED THIS IS A VERY COMMON ISSUE WITH HONDA VEHICLES, SPECIFIALLY ODYSSEY AND COMMONLY IN THE WHITE PEARL COLOR. BROUGHT THE CAR TO THE DEALER TO HAVE THEM LOOK AT IT. THEY QUICKLY ASKED IF I WANTED AND ESTIMATE. I EXPLAINTED THAT I WAS AWARE THIS WAS A COMMON DEFECT AT WHICH POINT THEY ACKNOWLEDGED IT IS AN ISSUE WITH THE PRIMER AND THEY WOULD TAKE IMAGES AND GET IN TOUCH WITH HONDA CORP. HONDA CORP SAID MY VIN DID NOT QUALIFY FOR THEIR WARRANTY EXTENSION AS THAT ONLY APPLIES TO 2012-2014 MODELS. MY CAR WAS DELIVED IN 2014, BUT WAS THE 2015 MODEL.

# WHAT HAPPENED MY 7-YEAR OLD CHILD (AROUND 50 POUNDS, 4'ISH FEET) WAS IN THE 3RD ROW SEAT AND ATTEMPTED TO PUT THE SEATBELT. AS SHE WAS DOING THIS, SHE SOMEHOW MANAGED TO GET KNOTTED WITH THE SEATBELT AROUND HER STOMACH (SEE PHOTO). ATTEMPTS TO LOOSEN THE SEATBELT DID NOT WORK AS THE SEATBELT SEEMED TO HAVE LOCKED UP (EVEN AFTER PUTTING THE CAR IN PARK) # DETAIL 1. WE WERE COMING BACK FROM NEWPORT, RI WHEN WE RAN INTO THIS ISSUE. 2. I PULLED OVER AND WE IMMEDIATELY STARTED WORKING ON UN-RAVELLING THE SEATBELT (SINCE IT COULD POTENTIALLY CUT OFF CIRCULATION ON THE CHILD) 3. EVEN AFTER STOPPING THE CAR AND PUTTING THE CAR IN PARK, THE SEATBELT WOULD NOT SLACK AND LOOSEN. THE CHILD HAD CLEARLY GOT TIED UP IN THE SEATBELT. I WOULD EXPECT THAT THE SEATBELT WOULD SLACK (AKA: NOT LOCK UP) AND ALLOW THE KNOT TO LOOSEN AND FOR THE CHILD TO COME FREE. HOWEVER THAT DID NOT HAPPEN. DESPITE NUMEROUS EFFORTS TO WIGGLE FREE AND PULL THE SEATBELT FOR SLACK, NOTHING WOULD GIVE. 4. WE FINALLY MANAGED TO FIND A SCISSOR AND CUT OFF THE SEATBELT. AS SOON AS THE SEATBELT WAS CUT OFF, IT MADE A CRANKING NOISE AND COILED BACK INTO THE RESTRAINING SYSTEM.

WHILE DRIVING, THE IDLE STARTED TO BECOME ROUGH AND ENGINE VIBRATION INCREASED. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT AND ADDITIONAL WARNING LIGHTS APPEARED IN THE DASH. ERROR CODE P0302 WAS THE PRIMARY ERROR CODE FOR MISFIRE CYLINDER 2 WHEN THE ERRORS WERE SCANNED AT HOME AND CONFIRMED BY SHOP AFFILIATED WITH CAR DEALERSHIP. THE SPARK PLUG IN CYLINDER 2 WAS INSPECTED AND IDENTIFIED TO BE FOULED AND COVERED IN OIL. ADDITIONALLY THE CERAMIC WAS MISSING FROM THE SPARK PLUG. THIS VEHICLE ONLY HAS 50,785 MILES, AND THIS ISSUE IS SIMILAR TO THE CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT/SERVICE BULLETIN 13-081 ISSUED TO HONDA VEHICLES (INCLUDING HONDA ODYSSEYS 2011-2013) . HOWEVER, THIS TIME HONDA IS TELLING ME THAT THIS ISSUE IS NOT A POWERTRAIN WARRANTY ISSUE AND THAT I AM RESPONSIBLE FOR THE COST OF REPAIRS ALTHOUGH THE PROBLEM FOLLOWS THE EXACT DECISION MATRIX FOUND IN THIS SERVICE BULLETIN FROM THE LOGGED ERROR CODE TO THE FOULED SPARK PLUG IN A YOUNG MOTOR. THIS VEHICLE HAS BEEN SERVICED BY THE SAME HONDA DEALERSHIP SINCE I PURCHASED THE VEHICLE USED AT 16K MILES.

Summary of Complaint

WHEN ACCELERATING NORMALLY, A SHAKING, SLUGGISH SENSATION BEGINS IN 2ND GEAR GOING THROUGH 3RD. IF I SETTLE OUT WITHIN ONE OF THE GEARS, IT GOES AWAY. IT ONLY HAPPENS WHEN I'M ACCELERATING. THE SPEEDS WHEN IT OCCURS RANGE FROM 20-40 MPH. IF I WERE TO TRULY STEP ON IT, IT DOESN'T SEEM TO GET WORSE, IT ACTUALLY ALMOST DISAPPEARS. IF ANYONE ELSE HAS THIS PROBLEM, PLEASE POST IT UP. DONT WANT IT GETTING WORSE AND CAUSING INJURIES BUT IF IT DOES, THERE NEEDS TO BE A RECALL.

Summary of Complaint

CABLE ON BACK DRIVERS SIDE DOOR SNAPPED FOR NO REASON. DID NOT NOTICE UNTIL VAN WAS PARKED AND TURNED OFF AND WENT TO OPEN DOOR. NEVER HEARD A SOUND OR UNDERSTAND WHY IT BROKE. MAKES ME FEEL VERY UNSAFE AND WONDER IF DOOR COULD HAVE OPENED WHILE DRIVING WITH MY CHILD SITTING THERE OR EVEN BEING INJURED BY THE CABLE.

Summary of Complaint

WHEN USING THE PUSH BUTTON TO START MY CAR THE CAR RANDOMLY WON'T START. LIGHTS COME ON THE DASH BUT THE ENGINE DOESN'T TURN OVER. I HAVE TAKEN MY CAR TO THE DEALER AND THEY CANNOT IDENTIFY ANYTHING WRONG. I HAVE CHILDREN AND HAVING A CAR THAT WON'T START RANDOMLY MAKES MY DAY REALLY STRESSFUL. I NEVER KNOW IF MY TRIP TO RUN ERRANDS, GET GROCERIES OR TO PICK UP MY KIDS WILL BE FOLLOWED BY MY CAR NOT STARTING. THIS CAR IS REALLY UNRELIABLE IN ITS CURRENT STATE. WHAT FRUSTRATES ME THE MOST IS HONDA HAD A RECALL THAT ADDRESSED THIS PROBLEM IN OLDER MODELS YET MY CAR MODEL AND YEAR HAVEN'T BEEN RECALLED.

Summary of Complaint

WHEN THE WEATHER GETS COOLER THE TAIL LIFT WON'T OPEN. IT IS NOT POWER LIFT. I CAN PULL AS LONG AND HARD AS I CAN AND IT WON'T MOVE. I BOUGHT THIS AS A USED VEHICLE IN2018 IN THE SUMMER SO DIDN'T FIND THIS OUT UNTIL IT COOLED DOWN. THE BACK DOOR SENSOR ALWAYS THINKS THE BACK IS OPEN ONCE IT WARMS UP WHICH MAKES THE CAR ALARM GO OFF.

Summary of Complaint

SOME LATE MODEL HONDA 6 SPEED TRANSMISSIONS CAN NOT BE DOWNSHIFTED! ON A LONG DOWNHILL GRADE, THE BRAKES WERE NOT ADEQUATE AND ARE NOW BURNED AND VIBRATE. I KNOW NOT TO 'RIDE' YOUR BRAKES BUT THERE WAS NO ALTERNATIVE, EITHER TRAVEL AT A CRAWL WITH TRAFFIC BACKING UP BEHIND ME OR HAVING A RUNAWAY CAR. I LEARNED TO DRIVE IN COLORADO AND KNOW THE SAFETY PROVIDED BY DOWNSHIFTING THE TRANSMISSION TO CONTROL YOUR DOWNHILL SPEED AS LONG (7 OR 8 MILES IN PLACES) DOWNHILL ROADS WILL RUIN YOUR BRAKES. TRUCK TRAVEL IS RESTRICTED ON MANY COLORADO ROADS AND THERE ARE NUMEROUS 'TRUCK RUNAWAY RAMPS' IN COLORADO FOR THIS REASON. I NEVER WOULD EXPECT A MANUFACTURE TO TAKE AWAY SAFETY ISSUES BUT HONDA TOOK AWAY THE ABILITY TO DOWNSHIFT THEIR 6 SPEED TRANSMISSION! THEY'VE ADDED MANY OTHER SAFETY DEVICES BUT I WOULD NEVER EXPECT THEM TO TAKE AWAY A SAFETY DEVICE WHERE THE COST OF DEVELOPMENT HAS BEEN ABSORBED, THE COST OF PRODUCTION IS NOW LOW AND IS SO NECESSARY FOR SAFETY. BEING ABLE TO SLOW OR STOP IS THE PRIMARY SAFETY FACTOR IN DRIVING! HONDA'S RESPONSE TO MY COMPLAINT IS THAT IT IS MY FAULT FOR NOT STUDYING THE VEHICLE MORE BEFORE I PURCHASED. IT SHOULD BE THE PRODUCER OF A PRODUCT WHO IS HELD TIGHTLY TO CONSUMER SAFETY. HONDA IS NOT PROVIDING A SAFE VEHICLE. THEY MAINTAIN IT IS NOT THEIR RESPONSIBILITY TO INFORM BUYERS OF CHANGES THEY HAVE MADE THAT MIGHT ADVERSELY AFFECT SAFETY. THIS IS AN ISSUE THE AVERAGE CITIZEN CANNOT HANDLE AND IT NEEDS GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION. THE ONLY CONCERN HONDA HAD WHEN THEY RESPONDED TO MY EMAILED COMPLAINT WAS A REQUIREMENT TO RECORD THE CALL AND NOT ALLOW ME TO RECORD IT OR TO GIVE ME A COPY OR TRANSCRIPT OF THE CALL. ALL OF THEIR CONCERN WAS ABOUT PROTECTING THEMSELVES LEGALLY, NOT PROVIDING A SAFE VEHICLE! MAYBE HONDA SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO BUILD 'CAR RUNAWAY RAMPS' ON LONG DOWN GRADES.

Summary of Complaint

ECO CAUSES SIGNIFIANT VIBRATION AT VARIOUS RPM'S/SPEEDS AND DELAYED SHIFTING AS THE COMPUTER DECIDES TO GO INTO ECO OR REMAIN. MOST NOTABLE AT HIGHER SPEEDS ABOVE 65 MPH. CURRENT ODYSSEY HAS HAD TORQUE CONVERTER REPLACED, TRANSMISSION SOFTWARE UPDATED, FRONT AXELS REPLACED AND TIRES ROAD FORCE BALANCED. NONE OF THE ABOVE FIXES HAS EFFECTED THE VIBRATION FELT DURING ECO GOING IN/OUT AND ESPECIALLY VIBRATION FELT IN THE STEERING WHEEL AND CABIN. HONDA SHOP HAS INFORMED ME THAT THIS IS PAR FOR THE COURSE FOR HONDA ECO'S AND THERE IS NO CURRENT FIX FOR THE VIBRATIONS. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE THAT NO CURRENT FIX IS IN PLACE AND SHOULD BE ADDRESSED BY HONDA AS NUMEROUS COMPLAINTS ONLINE OF OTHERS WITH SIMILAR ISSUE.

THE VEHICLE MAKES HARD SHIFTS IN LOWER GEARS, CAUSING A LACK OF ACCELERATION AND THEN A LURCH WITH ENGINE/TRANSMISSION CLUNK.
