  1. 2020 Ody - Consumer Reports - Very low rating - Should I still buy ??

    2018+ Odyssey
    Hi Chuck, The center row issues are: 1) The weight of the seats when trying to take them out. 2) After they're out, they don't fold flat for easy storage. Some moron at Honda signed off on seats that lock at about 45 degrees. All predecessor seats folded flat for stacking!! They are very nice...
  2. 2020 Ody - Consumer Reports - Very low rating - Should I still buy ??

    2018+ Odyssey
    True, but it also tells Toyota where everyone else screwed up so that Toyota can avoid the same dumb errors like uneven floors, poor middle row design (except for the sliding part), inadequate AC in the hotter climates, piss poor drive trains..:)
  3. My 2020 EX-L Build thread

    2018+ Odyssey
    We can, but the hoops and taxes you have to deal with are insane - not to mention iffy warranty issues.
  4. My 2020 EX-L Build thread

    2018+ Odyssey
    I wish we could get the beige interior in Canada!! I don't know why Honda does such stupid things. My 2002 had a beige interior and I just loved it. Of course, they are the same stupid ones who gave us middle row seats that don't fold down for storage and a tailgate that opens just high enough...
  5. Warped disk brakes

    2018+ Odyssey
    Good points, OF. There are several variables with brake ware as well. If you live in a hilly location, ware will be increased. If you live in a very cold climate, the rotors will get hot and then very cold over the period of a driving day. That must be hard on brakes. Some people tend to "ride"...
  6. 2018 Odyssey, stalling lost of power after full stop and then light acceleration

    2018+ Odyssey
    I have the 2018 EX and use ECON Mode all the time. I've had the same thing happen. The car hesitates for about 3 seconds. It has only happened 4 times but fortunately, no one was behind me. Where it can really be a problem is when you're making a left turn in heavy traffic at a stoplight...
  7. Lost All Speakers - Sound Only Through Subwoofer

    2018+ Odyssey
    Agreed, King Kong. There have been numerous discussions about the Honda battery being borderline on the requirements from all the trinkets it needs to support. If I ever need a new battery, I'll consult with the service department and see which one is the best. On the other hand, the battery may...
  8. Problem with opening height of tailgate on 2019 Honda Odyssey EX

    2018+ Odyssey
    Welcome aboard, Carlobatussi. Glad everyone was okay. In retrospect, when the mechanics said your open hatch height was "normal," it would have been interesting to have them open and measure the hatches of every minivan in stock. I can guarantee that they would vary somewhat or at the very...
  9. Lost All Speakers - Sound Only Through Subwoofer

    2018+ Odyssey
    Agreed about your thoughts on the impedances. They're close enough unless you're driving the daylights out of the system, which won't happen with OEM sound systems. Chalk this one up to another Honda mystery.
  10. Lost All Speakers - Sound Only Through Subwoofer

    2018+ Odyssey
    Agreed, Digitalextremes. Incorrect impedance matches your analysis :). If his total impedance is lower than the recommended range of the amplifier, the amplifier will overheat and shut down until it cools down again. This can also happen if the impedance is too high - 16 Ohms, for example.
  11. Lost All Speakers - Sound Only Through Subwoofer

    2018+ Odyssey
    Here's an idea, Slinkyskinked. Make sure your replacement speaker impedances match those of the Honda OEM speakers. (My hobby for the past 45 years has been speaker design.) If the Honda speakers are 8 Ohms each and you replaced them with 4 Ohm speakers (for example), depending on how the 4 Ohm...
  12. 2018-Fuel injector needs replacement

    2018+ Odyssey
    Thanks, Triaque. It's fun, if not pathetic when someone gives themselves away like that. That service advisor made the false assumption that GreekMother knew nothing. I was in Florida years ago with my family. We had driven down from Ontario, Canada. My car needed some service work so I...
  13. 2018-Fuel injector needs replacement

    2018+ Odyssey
    When a service advisor says this, it indicates he doesn't know what he's talking about. And you're right, there is no gas gap!! There is a switch on the gas filler door that is activated when closed, otherwise, your driver side sliding door will not work. Sounds like the only reason he knew it...
  14. Lane Keep Assist: always off

    2018+ Odyssey
    LOL!
  15. Frequency

    2018+ Odyssey
    Hi Kriskris1978. I have a 2018 EX in Canada. My default temperature readout is in Celsius. I believe this is the default for all Odysseys because every country now uses the metric system. The only one who doesn't is the U.S. (Perhaps someone can confirm that?) I wonder why yours is in...
