Question about 2006 Honda Odyssey
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?
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,
