Before my experience went all south with American honda and its deal in Frisco, TX. there was a piece of mail that came from Honda offering a refund if I had fix my steering pump, which I did. I turn in the paper work to get refunded. I was only given 30 days to turn that in. you can call american honda to see if they will still honor it. but with my horrible experience so far with them, I doubt that will ever happen. Good luck.

DO NOT TRUST THE HONDA STEALERSHIPS. They told me my high pressure line and power steering pump were leaking causing the whining noise when cold. They wanted $550 plus to install a new line and pump when the real problem was the inlet O ring which has been superseded by an orange viton type to stop the air leak which cause the whine and foaming in the reservoir. Honda should recall all V-6's with this problem but will not as it involves 100's of thousand Odysseys from 2005 to 2010. Research online to do the O ring repair before letting the Dealer Rip You Off. It is very difficult to get to the one single 10mm bolt to replace this defective O ring on the inlet line of the pump but a small swivel socket and 10mm stubby wrench works good. New Honda O ring part number is 91345-RDA-A01 and is a whopping $1.62. You also will need to top off your powers steering fluid with ONLY Honda/Acura Type.

I think that you can do that in other place or yourself. There is no need to pay them extra money for that IMO.
#6 of 6 05 honda odyssey power steering pump recall

HI i got my recall letter from Honda USA to replace my power steering pump around the middle of 2011. I took my odyssey to Brickell Honda on 8th st miami fl and had service advisor Tony took care of it. My van was fine before that but now it squeaks and its very hard to turn the wheel, when it got colder in december/january and february the squeaking and hard turning the steering was very much annoying and very loud. I called back Tony from Brickell honda and he said that it should be ok with the new pump but you can bring the van back to verify but i could not because of my job and its hours of operation.
I took the van recently to Brickell Honda because of the same issue and was told the repair estimate was under $600.00 plus Tax. Then i found our from Javier the service advisor that the Power Steering Pump was NEVER Changed but a Master Cylinder was changed instead. My brakes was never and issue so Why was it changed. The repair cost of $600.00 was ready quickly, I called HONDA USA to help me and was told NO they could not do anything after their Dealer RIP ME OFF AND HONDA USA. Our Home has currently 4 HONDA Vehicle 2 Odyssey's, a Civic and a CRV.
I felt betrayed by the dealer Brickell Honda who Lied to us and that Honda after finding out their dealer's are Crooks did not even care.
The sad story is that we bought the Civic in Sep 2010 from Brickell Honda and being a customer i took my odyssey to them for service trusting that the service will be done right.
MY QUESTION IS HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN LIED TO AND TAKEN FOR A RIDE AND CHARGED FOR NOTHING AND NOT EVEN THE CORRECT ISSUES WAS ADRESSED BUT JUST TO BE CHARGED FOR SOMETHINE ELSE ONLY AT YOU LOCAL BRICKELL HONDA IN MIAMI FL.
I WILL NEVER BUY A HONDA AGAIN, WE HAVE 4 FOR SALE.
