2006 Honda Odyssey brake problems

My van has 42,000 miles and has been serviced at all recommended intervals. When we had the oil changed at 35,000 miles we were told that everything was ok and that the brake pads were at 50 %. I noticed after this oil change on a long trip that the brakes had a grinding noise when stopping.and would have a whining or rubbing sound when first driven in the morning. When we took in to be checked, we were told that the rotors were warped and needed to be replaced. They said this was probably due to alot of in town driving with stops and starts and the brakes overheating. We only drive this van on out of town trips because we have a Honda Civic for in town driving. I have read alot of other complaints about the 2005 and 2006 Odyssey brake problems. I got a big runaround from the dealership with no resolution except an expensive repair. Can you give me any advise?

    Our 2006 Odyssey developed screeching/ squealing rear brakes noise on sharp turns and randomly at down hill prior to 25k miles. Had the dealer work on this issue many times even after 36k warranty expires but to no avail, still a major problem and not what is expected from a Honda. At45k Hansel Honda will not continue to fix the problem - it is apparently safe! How can this be fixed and should this be covered by Honda?

    My 2006 Odyssey makes a squealing sound when the brakes are cold and sometime during a turn at low speeds, I have 34000 miles. I have taken it to the dealer several times, but if they can't duplicate it they won't look at it. I may have to take the car and park it overnight at the dealership and duplicate the problem in the morning. It is a bit frustrating that this problem seems to be very common, and yet the dealership acts as if this is the first time they've heard of it.

    We have taken our 2006 Odyssey in for all service intervals & asked about the brakes several times & they have told us that it is fine. We even brought it in before a major road trip to Colorado this Christmas and asked specifically about the brakes. Today they told us that we need new brakes & rotors to the tune of $850. Does anyone know why rotors have to be replaced at the same time as the pads?

    I have the same problem with my 06 EX 41,000. Brake grinding, growling when first driven at low speeds. After reading this forum, I hope a new pad material is available when I have them replaced.

  • marsh89 Apr 16, 2009

    I had the same problem, thought it was my power steering. Had to drive around with the Honda Tech for 30 minutes to reproduce. Turns out it was the rear brakes making the growling noise during turns at various rates of speed. They wanted $200 to rough up the pads. Something about them being a special new type of boot pad. I did not get the work done beause it had nothing to do with safety, but the noise is driving me crazy!

Sounds like there is a problem with these vehicles and that Honda are aware of it, and at least some dealerships are being honest about it. Check out the forum on fixya from other Odyssey owners here.
Sorry I can't be of more help, but I can only suggest you go back to the dealership and quote this "Honda Tech Line Summary Article",
#ATS050707..."Grinding, Growling Noise from the Front Brakes - A grinding,
growling noise when applying moderate to hard pedal pressure at low speeds
is caused by the brake pad friction material. An improved material will
be announced in a forthcoming Service Bulletin."
Ask them if there has been a fix developed for this problem yet.

Hope this helps,
Mark.

This requires differential fluid changes more frequently than recommended by the Maintenance Minder.

How many quarts does the sienna 2006 needs when perfoming oil cha


Exactly five quarts to do an oil change on this van assuming you are also replacing the oil filter.
How long between oil changes is typically recommended to be 5000 miles by Toyota. The van's service reminder light comes on at 5000 miles just for this purpose. To increase that interval is your choice.

Change the engine oil and call it a day. Your owners manual has service intervals listed, and with 11,000 miles, the only fluid I would pay attention to is the engine oil at this time.

Normal 20,000 mile service, what is done?

This service generally involves an oil and filter change , tire rotation
and a safety inspection. While changing the oil, the mechanic will be performing visual inspections of the brakes, belts and hoses inspecting for any fluid leaks,, listening for any abnormal noises, and paying attention to any irregularities in the operation of the vehicle.
If you have your service at the dealership, have them check and perform any recalls on the vehicle.
Possible Repairs Needed at the 20,000 Mile Service It's not uncommon for your vehicle to need a brake pad replacement at this mileage, and on some vehicles the tires may need replacement.

Recommendations
  • We recommend considering replacement of the air filter every year or 12,000 to 15,000 miles.
Why this happens
  • If oil has contaminated the air filter, it should be replaced. Oil contamination may indicate a problem with the PCV system.
  • Air filters will need replacement more often in vehicles driven in dusty and sandy areas.

My 1999 Honda Odyssey Van has ~ 205000 miles on


I'm surprised a dealership made that mistake. Honda did start making engines to take oil until around 2003. I would go back and have them put the correct oil in the van. 5W-20 is not as thick as 5w-30, so the engine may start to make louder noises down the road. Just stick with 5w-30 for what the engine was made for.

30,000 mile service


Do you have the owners manual? It will list what the manufacturer recommends at 30k. Better yet, ask the dealer what is included for the $600+. If you post the list to me, I'll give you my opinion on what I recommend to have done, and what I believe isn't necessary. I have driven many cars to very high mileage, and all of these vehicles never went to a dealer for service (new and used). I feel the many service checks are for people that abuse their car, have money to burn, and want to support the dealerships service department. Honda makes a quality vehicle, if you change fluids and filters, you will enjoy it for many miles/years. Hope to hear from you with list.
