Been reading this forum for a couple of days. Alittle concerned with the problems on the early odysseys. Purchased my 04 new, Sept 2004. Has the improved transmission per the vin no. Now has 144,000 miles on it. Have had no problems with it and serviced it per the maintence schedule. Trans flush at about 100k as well as timing belt etc. Everything by the book. Still runs like new and shifts as well. I know most come to complain on these forums but would like some honest feed back. I purchased it hopeing to get 250k miles out of it. Thanks for letting me be here.
