#2411 of 2416 My Odyssey just got the transmission demon.
Nov 01, 2013 (10:55 am)
Bought mine used a little over a year ago. It's 1999 with 120k on it. It had 103k when I bought it for $3400. I have friends who owned Civics that lasted well past 200k and thought Honda was a good brand. I started looking around when I got the check engine light. Mine's well out of warranty and my wife likes it too much to junk it. I found a rebuilt tranny on ebay for $1200 from a seller with not a great user rating. I'm wondering how my miles I can milk out of the current transmission and what bandaids I can use to help it along? Honda really needs to make this right. Is there anybody trying to start up a new class action suit?

Bought my 2002 Odyssey new.
I had to replace my transmission at 184,000 kms. I put in a transmission cooler that was installed by a travel trailer company for $125 at 260,000 kms (Honda recommend the trailer company, said not to use Honda ones). I currently have 336,000 kms. 2 years ago I replaced my air condioner at Honda for a rebuilt one. We love this van. Will keep it until it drops and probably buy a used 2014 in a few years.

That's what the tranny re-build place said....his brother in law has one with over 300,000 miles. I didn't get the rebuilt tranny until almost 200K, but it needed it far before that with the problems I was having with 2nd gear. I couldn't be on a hill and shift into 3rd gear. Mine is a 2002 as well.

"(Honda recommend the trailer company, said not to use Honda ones)."
Can you let us know which trailer company installed the cooler?
