Hi... can you send me the post where the class action lawsuit is located. (I have a 2012 EXL with Res)
UPDATE from today: Spoke to Honda Motor Company today. The woman on the phone stated that Lehigh Valley Honda informed her that there was nothing wrong with the vehicle and that this is normal. I almost blew a gasket. I informed the woman that they are lying and do they think that I am "making this up?"
I WILL NEVER, EVER, EVER purchase a Honda vehicle again. Additionally, I will use every media outlet, social avenue and consumer and government agency to get this message out. If i can convince 27 people to not purchase an Odyssey at the price I did, Honda will lose over 1 million dollars. My goal is to have 1000 people not purchase a Honda based upon my message.
Honda does not believe their customers. They provide vibrating vehicles and then claim it is part of the ECO transmission.

I am still catching up here. Is this a problem with 2012 Odyssey models also or just the 2011?
I was looking into buying a 2012 odyssey soon..but now I am worried

Personally I don't prefer buying a Honda odyssey, most of the times the dealers wont accept there is a problem.
all they will say, that is the default behavior of the van/car.
do some research on other models/cars.
#438 of 466 That's right

That's right and that is why this issue has gone on so long. Ran into the same thing trying to get my oddysey fixed. Could never get honda or a honda dealer to admit there was a shudder in my vehicle. Honda tells the dealer that it is normal so the dealer tells you the same thing. Apparently Honda has warranty repairs buttoned down so tight that the dealer can not initiate a repair unless Honda approves. Unless the vehicle is inoperative or the noise or defect is beyond doubt. If they do not admit there is a problem then no problem exhists and if it doesn't exist they do not have to attempt a repair. That is how they are side stepping the Magnussen Moss Warranry Act. All automobile dealers sell new vehicles with known defects. The Warranty Act is there to protect the consumer. (Its not working people.) Contact your congressman and complain.

DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT BUY AN ODYSSEY. All these posts are exactly what I have experienced over the last week. Dealer claims that is the way the car is supposed to function. Honda corporate stated the dealer told them there is nothing wrong with the car.
UPDATE: Today, I emailed the VP of the Honda Dealership that I purchased my vehicle from. I must have caught his attention as I received a phone call in about 20 minutes following my email. The general manager of the dealership called me, but to no surprise, stated the same thing that everyone else has already told me. I do have an appointment with him next week to take him for a ride in the vibrating Odyssey. I guess it's the least I can do since they took me for a ride for close to 40 grand!
I have three children, my wife is a nurse, I am a working professional. We are rather intelligent people. I feel as though these people are treating us as though we just fell of the "turnip truck". If I tell you the car vibrates, the car vibrates.
Our second choice was a Toyota Sienna. 6 grand less with all the same feature and NONE of this bullshit headache!
One slice of advice that I would give you is prior to making ANY purchase, Google the kind of vehicle with the word "recall" after it. Even it there are no official recalls yet, you will hit blogs of consumers that are stating there should be a recall and you will uncover TRUE user issues if any. If you find none, that is the minivan to purchase.
GO FOR THE SIENNA!

Read all of page 22 for all the information you need on the problem with the transmission and the class action which is in the making.

Yes there is a brake problem. There has been a recall on the brakes. I have a 2007 and the brakes went all the way to the floor. They fixed them but still aren't right.
