    I had my 2001 Honda Odyssey transmission go a week ago. I had it towed to a Honda Dealer. They checked my VIN # and it was covered under the extended warranty of 7 years or 100K with no charge. They replaced it at no cost so you may want to do the same thing.

    If you're under the 100K mile/7 yr warranty - Thank God! Because of the faulty transmission that Honda knows about; therefore, extended the warranty on - you can get it replaced for free. But you do not get an additional warranty on the new one. I've had ours replaced twice; both before the car even had 80,000 miles it.

    If your transmission is replaced because of it's faulty workmanship, BUT it breaks down after the extended warranty time - you're on your own. They won't be "responsible" for the transmission after the extended warranty ends. Mine ends at the end of May, 2009, and I had my last one put December of 2007.

    It has been a nightmare with this thing. Now my electrical system is going down and something is draining the battery.

The Odyssey has notorious bad transmissions from 2000-2003. You will not get anything on a trade, the trans can be fixed for about $2k. If everything else on the van still works and you like it, figure you bought it again for $2k. I changen my wife's Odyssey trans at 175K miles for $2k and she is happy so therefore I am happy too :-)

My Honda Odyssey 2001 transmission died last week. I had the car towed to a Honda Dealer. After giving my VIN # to the dealer, they replaced my transmission at no cost because it fell within the 7 year, 100 K mile extended warranty Honda was giving due to the class action suit on Honda Odyssey transmissions of the specified years 1999-2003 I believe. I paid nothing and I have a new transmission!

I bought a 2001 honda odessey with 73000 miles the transmission gave up. i have it rebuild now it is 83000 miles transmission starting to slip


No transaxles make 100,000 miles

What your saying, including the rebuild
is common

Asian transaxles & all Van type vehicles,
are something you don't want to own

I used to own a trans shop,so I will leave
you with that

Can't fix slipping,drive a couple of days,
& your pulling the trans out again

2001 Honda Odysse~140,000 miles, transmission problems


Yikes! The transmission has gotten a lot of complaints, but $3500 sounds high. You should be able to find a used one for about $1200, Power steering is no big deal, unless you were in a wreck, and the front end alignment is $75. So somebody is wanting your wallet and your kids and your dog. I would get a second opinion on all that. The van isn't that old. And 140,000 miles, it is just getting broke in. I have 250,000 miles on my rodeo, and the tranny just quit. I got a whole truck for parts with tranny for $400. Took out the tranny, and a bunch of parts, and sold a bunch of parts, and then sold the truck for $400! Not bad. Hope this helps.

I bought a 2003 Honda Odyssey from Napleton Honda dealer in Rockford, IL. However, the transmission was gone within 3 months ( I drove only 2000 miles). The dealer is not taking any responsibility because...


WELL I BEEN TO SEVERAL CAR LOTS.I SEEN AS IS NO WARRANTY VECHICLES.IF SOMETHING FAILS IN 30 DAYS THEY WILL FIX IT.BUT IF YOU BUY AS IS VECHICLE.BEST TO GET EXTENDED WARRANTY.

1999-2003 Honda Odysseys have trouble with their transmissions. Google "honda odyssey transmission" and look at the wikipedia article that comes up for Honda odysseys. In about the fourth paragraph you will find out about the transmission problems. If your van is acting up, have the transmission checked out sooner vs. later. It won't get better on it's own. Have the diagnostic trouble codes retrieved from the car's computer--any code that starts with 17 as in "1740" or codes that start with zero like "0730" are transmission codes and signs of impending failure. I know because my 2002 with 165,000 miles just failed.
