Blame everything on yourself. Obviously you've picked the wrong car on the lot, which has a lot of problems or something. And every cars have problems. Just because you have a POS ody, that doesn't mean all the Odysseys are like yours. Use your warranty to solve the problems. I know it's really upsetting, but hey. You've actually paid for the warranty as part of the car. So might as well, use it while you have it. Right?

...or something like that, don't remember where I read it...
Honda is just like many other corporate companies... keep on deny-ing and not accepting fault! Started w/ the tranny issues about 10yrs ago..and kept going downhill.
Putting it in perspective there must be hundreds of 2011 Odyssey owners participating on this forum and there are only about a dozen or so with the problem.
We have a 2011 EX-RES with 3,000 KM on it. I've had no problems with it and think it is a vast improvement over the last van I owned (2008 Sienna).
I agree that buying in the introduction year is best avoided but I think Honda's effort is pretty solid with this model. The most important part (power train) is carry over anyway.
No major issues with my Touring Elite. Had the front left strut replaced a couple of days ago and the van runs smoother and quieter now.
Very happy with the van so far!!!!
