#93 of 129 poor poor honda u were my dream but now a nightmare.
May 02, 2011 (3:02 pm)
I have a 2010 honda odyssey EX and it is by far the worst 32k my hubby and i have ever spent. i am afraid to trade it cause i don't want us to lose our butts on it. And the fact its another credit check is not good either. here is my problem my windows rattle, pass and driver sliding doors do to. The drivers window creaks and tries to force itself higher up in the track when it is already fully up. I have a terrible spark knock or something going on in my engine. All i know is my van has less than 8k on it and it has a knock that makes me sick. My tranny fights to get into drive or park sometimes I have to fully depress the brake to the point where there is no further to push it in to get it to shift. I have trouble with it not wanting to start. It revs high when i first start it like 1000rpms or more in the morning. I've taken it to the dealer they wont fix it. They said they dont know whats wrong with it, they stated they took the doors apart and fixed the creaks, reprogrammed the window and lubed the doors, but none of this is seeming to help. Please i need some advice help me. I have kids and dont have the time to run back and forth to the dealer or worry if my car is gonna die on me what do you think i should do..

Can you get it to another dealer? Have you gone on a ride with the service rep at the dealer and pointed out the problems? if they acknowledge the symptoms but cannot fix them, threaten using the lemon law in your state to get a new one.
#97 of 129 sliding door won't unlock

I have a 2005 odyssey EX-L. The sliding door on the drivers side won't unlock electrically or manually. This means i can't open the door. Can anybody help.

I've been trying to help my neighbors. They have a 2005 and lots of kids. They paid 1000 3 years ago to have both doors fixed. Last year the drivers side broke again...and now the passenger side too. They can't afford this type of nonsense. Did you have any luck figuring out what to do? Same problem, the sliding door locks go up and down, and the gas cap sensor seems to be working but you can't even open the damn doors manually from the inside or out. I can't believe how many people I'm reading about have this problem. This is a hard strike against Honda as far as I'm concerned. I don't care how good the name or engine is. It seems the going rate they charge is 400-500 per door to fix their own crappy design.
#99 of 129 Door problems
Oct 17, 2011 (7:11 am)
I bought a 09 OdysseyEX from Duval Honda, we have had issues with the drivers side passenger door from the begining. The door will stop half way through opening and close itself or the opposite when trying to close it. Every time I have taken it to the dealer, they have never been able to replicate the issue. On October 8, 2011 the door fell off while trying to close it in the rain. Duval Honda will not return my calls, I filed a report with corporate, and they have dismissed my case since my insurance company is covering the 2000 in repairs. I have also had issues with my drivers side automatic window not working right, but the dealership couldn't replicate that either. I'm now looking into the lemon law, and consulting an attorney, because this isn't right. Has anyone else had issues with the automatic doors?

The passenger sliding door on our 09 EX continues to have issues during the winter months; the slightest bit of moisture won't allow the door to properly close...Filed a complaint with Honda Motor after numerous checks at the dealership...All that is done is a quick lube job along the door frame, and letting the van sit in a heated garage (which we don't have) for 30 min seems to do the trick...5 days later the issues return...We'll see what takes plce in a few months.

I had a similar experience. After carefully thinking about what if anything i might have done, I discovered what I believe is an undocumented feature that actually comes in handy on hot summer days. If you hit the remate unlock button once, the car unlocks. If you then hit it a second time, the passenger doors unlock. So far, so good, but if you hold the unlocj button down on the second click, the windows all go down and the moonroof opens. Try it and let me know if this is just my 2011 Odyssey, or all 2011s or earlier.
#102 of 129 Stupid window feature
Dec 30, 2011 (8:37 am)
Our windows and sun roof open on their own and have caused us much concern. On Christmas morning we left our hotel room to find our car's windows and sunroof open a few inches. It had rained all night and the seats and door panels were soaked. This is not the first time we've found our windows open. The dealer say nothing can be done, but there has to be a way to turn off this stupid "feature". Any suggestions?
