So far mine has been quite reliable with 10,000 miles. I'm sure that a large part of the problem is that Consumer Reports is reporting the two recalls that were put out for the Odyssey. Also, the problem with the front suspension (that warranted a TSB) would bring down the Odyssey's score. The 2008 Odyssey was rated average, but in its second year the 2008 moved up to above average because Consumer Reports got more data.Looks like the Odyssey is not doing so well with the model change from Consumer Reports predicted reliability ratings. My 2007 has had several recalls, but is very dependable. I wonder if things will improve this year.
Hate to disagree. But I think Consumer Reports is finally getting it right. I'm just surprised it took them so long !I am starting to wondering about consumer report credential...
It's true that Honda is a little harsh on their customers, (I had to deal with them about my Circus glass / warped windshield) but the reports compares it against rivals, so perhaps other manufacturers treat their customers the same way.Hate to disagree. But I think Consumer Reports is finally getting it right. I'm just surprised it took them so long !
I bought a 2001 Odyssey new, based on Consumer Reports. 3rd transmission,
engine mounts, sliding door problems. dash lights difficult to replace, etc.
Just read the many posts on this site, and how Honda of America, treats the "loyal" customers.
You have to wait a few years/miles, for the issues to pop up. Hope, things are better for the new cars.
Exterior: wheels, mirrors with markers, fogs, glossy finish pillars, translucent liftgate garnishDidn't see why it wouldn't be an EX-L with Nav?
I don't pay much attention to it. I've had cars and products that were rated badly, do quite well for me and cars and products that were highly rated, do poorly.. go figure? I could be wrong, but I believe their reliability ratings is only based on the paid subscribers that actually fill out the surveys. It's not accurate.I am starting to wondering about consumer report credential...
