DIXIE COUP: HONDA STARTS SOUTHERN ODYSSEY
With demand for the Odyssey minivan still at record levels two years after
it was introduced, Honda is beginning to produce pilot vehicles from its
new assembly plant located near Talladega, Ala. The $440 million plant in
the small town of Lincoln will eventually be able to build 120,000 Honda
vehicles each year, which would double the number currently available to
Honda dealers. Speculation says Honda will expand the plant to build a
less expensive version of the Acura MDX sport-ute, but Honda has not
confirmed any such plans. The new plant is the second auto-assembly plant
in the state; Mercedes-Benz builds the M-Class sport-ute on the other side
of Birmingham, halfway to Tuscaloosa on I-59.

RETHREADING

ADMIRAL ---You have alot to learn . I remember posting the new factory post sometime ago and I assume someone decided to repost it to make me look bad. If anyone read my posts on why I did not by a Honda they would see I'm not really bad mouthing them. If you look at how long I've been a ODY member you would see it's been a while. I really was hoping to buy something more updated than the Safari but the Honda was just to small for my needs. I follow the auto and truck industry as part of my job and interest. I know the Safari pretty well after owning a 94model. My 94 was a good vehicle except for the fuel injection system which was a poor design with no real fix. The van had 120,000 miles when I sold it and looked and ran well. The fuel injection repairs were the only major repairs.
I also only buy Honda generators, lawn mowers and plan to buy a Honda 1800cc motorcycle so don't say I'm bad mouthing Honda.
I do work at many auto dealers and I talk with service advisers all the time so I may know more about Hondas than someone who owns one. It is a fact the Honda transmission is a bad design. Why do you think the warranty was extended?

Sorry, can't let you get away with that. Where is your proof? The transmissions failed because of faulty parts not necessarily an inherently bad design.
