I am not what this means. I have tried the website and nothing comes up on this topic. Is there a petition already out there?

I had been a victim of the same Rami Transmission. I purchased the transmission from Ebay and had my vehicle towed to his facility in Brooklyn. They claim they have fixed it vehicle died on the way back from there facility. I had to tow it again back to my garage.
I tried to reach out to the owner Rami but it is shame he does not return your call. He does not care about the service he has rendered.
After 3 weeks of waiting, i finally disputed it with AMEX and ebay. I paid $1750 (incuding $600 in cash on delivery).
I will fight it out with this guy so that no one in future will be affected.
Also anyone has suggestion on any mechnic who could fix the Transmission problems in NJ.

Isn't there some way to post in these forums about businesses that rip folks off? This company seems to be big time rip off artists...there must be a way to warn other folks about their shady practices. And, always pay for something like that with a credit card so if there is a problem, the credit company can take back any payment.
Shame there are people in the world who do these kind of things to other folks...hopefully what goes around, comes around to this slimy business!

First time posting but desperately need advice on my 2000 Odyssey transmission. Never had any major problems with car until now. ALWAYS service at HONDA dealership and they have been great. Developed a SMALL leak under car which i noticed after 14 hour round trip to SC. Took to dealership immediately. Was told seals needed to be replaced which I did that day. However, upon checking car again next day still small leak..Back to dealership 4 more times until they diagnosed a leak in the transmission case. Was told they could repair with HONDA BOND since fixing problem would be around $1500.00. I followed their suggestion and saw no further leaks UNTIL another emergency road trip to SC and upon getting home decided to recheck for leak and there it was again! VERY SMALL....didn't even have to top of the fluids BUT now the dealership is saying NEW transmission to the cost of either $5500.00 - $6500.00. Have had NO problem with car on the interstate, no lights coming on and no slipping of the transmission. Called HONDA USA and talked with them. They think the price quoted is higher than national average and suggests discussing with service mgr.What i don't understand is how the problem can go from leak in transmission case to suddenly replacing the transmission. I am older lady with just enough car sense to get into trouble .but i really don't want to get rid of my Odyssey which i LOVE but wondering if it's worth the cost of replacing the transmission at this point. NO OTHER problems with car. Have had all hoses, belts replaced long before they recommended and oil changes every 3 months. Sorry for the long post but any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you.

if the trans works fine, I would not consider a new one. Sometimes you get a leak that to actually fix would require tearing the whole thing apart (gaskets wear out over time). In your case, put a piece of cardboard on the garage floor under it, check the fluid level regularly, and live with it, assuming it does not get worse. Maybe reseal it?
My guess is that it will be fine around town, but those long highway runs really heat it up and expand the pieces, letting the leak reform.

same issue. do not replace the tranny. there is no fix and the tranny that they will replace yours with is no better then the one you have. Get rid of the van ASAP for the tranny will fail. I did and was glad I did. Honda lost a $90 law suit of this tranny and many others. Like you I lived and learned my lesson with Honda and will never buy again. Mine only have 60K miles on it. I will bet you motor mounts are broke as well.
The leak can only be fixed by replacing the tranny. Do not waste your time or $$$. Trust me on this one. Been there done that. Loose the van and stay away from Honda. The 2012 tranny is no better either!
