If you have the option to return the vehicle and get your money back - DO. A proper rebuild of this defective trannie will likely cost far more then the vehicle is worth. Numerous parts are fried because of a well known problem with these trannies.

I also had a similar experience like the one you posted. Ours is a 2009 Odyssey. Yesterday, when parked at a drive thru', there was this noise from the front of the car which sounded like a tyre was becoming flat with intermittent sound. Just a few minutes back my daughter had complained that the A/c is not cooling. Thanks to your post, I believe the issue is AC relay too.
The Battery Draining does not seem coincidental as mine also did not start next day morning. Battery is completely dead! Need to jumpstart and see.

Just came from the Honda service. The problem with AC relay in Odyssey is not covered by extended warranty. It is covered only for first 3 years only. The AC relay getting stuck drained the juice in the battery completely and looks like it affected some cells in it rendering it useless. Now, I have to replace the battery too.

I bought my 2013 Honda Odyssey early February. At around the last week of February (about 650 miles driven) there was evidence of transmission fluid leak on my garage floor. Brought the minivan at the dealership for the first month courtesy check. The dealership confirmed that the leak was due to a washer in the transmission pan and fixed it.
On the first week of April I took the minivan for a weekend drive of about 300 miles. A week after the drive, more transmission fluid spot leaks on my garage floor. Today, April 17, I took the minivan back to the dealership to report the same transmission leak problem. This time the service consultant told me that the leak now originates from the transmission seals! Now I'm driving a cheap rental for next few days hoping that this problem gets fixed.
The bottom line is that I'm just totally disappointed with Honda America and the Honda brand for the poor workmanship and reliability for this vehicle after just owning the vehicle for less that 2 and a half months with less than 1200 miles driven. I'm more worried now after I get the vehicle wondering what other surprises will crop up within the next three years/36000 miles before the warranty expires.
I'm now having buyer's remorse and should have stayed with Toyota since I never had the same grief from Toyota since the 1980s whenever I buy a new vehicle from them.

I"m getting used to hearing reports about brand new Ody's having tranny problems, some supposedly as the new owner is taking it home for the first time. Every time Honda announces better performance and better gas mileage for the Ody, I wonder what they broke to make it happen.

I know what you mean, as my daughter had a 2002 Odyssey with 102,000 miles, and the transmission went. Even though it was under the 107,000 Honda had settled for it was passed the 7 years so we shelled out $4,600 for a new transmission, and when Honda refused to help out, I sold the car, and also sold my 2005 Odyssey with only 21k miles as I could not take a chance, and bought two Toyota Siennas instead. I refuse to deal with an organization that would not stand by its product on a known defect.
The car was serviced regularly by the book at Honda.

Wish I would have done more research before purchasing our 2013 Odyssey two weeks ago. Transmission fluid leaking! Soooo not happy about this!
