Or should i look into a Toyota Siena?????
Test drove a 2005 Odyssey and it seemed fine.. but i want to make sure i'm making the right decision....
YOu all are scaring me with the knocking noise, brake issues, and other concerns.....
#11 of 13 grinding noise when braking on Odyssey 2005

I have experienced this noise for 3 years already on Honda OD 2005 (current: 75k miles). It happens on and off and always after the brake cool off. I have asked the dealership for technical explanation in the past and getting no reasonable answer. I went for second opinion to check on brake pad, rotor last year. Nothing is wrong. Recently I went to another dealership for power steering recall (warranty extension) and brake system recall. I was told that this "grinding noise" is normal to Honda from Y 2005-2007 and nothing I can do about it (go figure?). The Honda case manager in CA (Ray) told me basically the same thing (Honda don;t have this problem!!) C'mon, most of Honda OD driver are middle class family. Honda take year to build it's reputation, I guess this will be my first and last Honda in our family, it is because how they treat their customer concern. Another issue I have the engine mounter and vibration on certain RPM (ECO mode)..this one will be next posting.

I finally got the problem fixed. It was the calipers that needed to be replaced. After two sets of new rotors and new brake pads and fluid, as well as steering fluid being replaced, I have been without the noise for 2 1/2 months. Try that.

Mine was the axle/cv joint problem.
My knock was when turning right and it made the knocking sound.
