I just replaced my 2015 Honda Odyssey with a 2018. The 2015 drove smooth as butter and I never had any issues with the transmission. The 2018's transmission is very jerky and unpredictable. Going from 0 - 25ish it shifts hard several times. At about 35+ it drives normal. It seems the colder the temp outside the hard the shifts. The engine is also much louder and seems to tack higher. If I floor the gas the engine screams but the van doesn't take off all that fast. I feel like I always have to keep pressing in on the gas to keep it going. Like hold the gas in one place isn't enough. When letting off the gas it feels like the transmission shifts to a higher gear and slows the car down. Feels like a rubber banding effect, rather than just coasting.
Overall the 2018 just feel like a chore to drive while the 2015 drove perfectly. Anyone else having the same issues? Thanks!
