I am unhappy with the engine idle sound of my 2011 Odyssey EX-L and wonder if it is normal. When the engine is fully heated up (after some driving), I start hearing small yet diesel-like engine sound (periodic sound commonly found in old engine) when I stopped (when RPM is round 0.6~0.7). Is there anyone hearing the same sound? The sound is pretty unpleasant and annoying, considering a brand new car with only 1000 miles. I have been extremely happy with the engine sound of my 5 years old 4-cylinder Accord. Quite disappointed about the engine sound in V6 2011 Odyssey. Is VCM making this sound? I am thinking about taking my car to the dealer to check other odysseys make same idle noise. Any comment would be appreciated.

And, you might want to record the sound and post it as your description gives no clue to others on what exactly the problem is. It would be far easier for other 2011 owners to listen to an audio clip of your engine sound and chime in if theirs do the same or not.

Its just a high strung V-6. Have the same sound on start up as my Porsche 911.
