Using D3 the speed governor kicks in at 125mph and D4 gearing is so tall that it takes forever to even get to 115mph.
I couldn't help but chuckle at your use of the frowning face on this post. My previous car was a Ford Thunderbird with a 4.6 V8. I really enjoyed that car, it was one of the best performing and driving cars I've ever owned. It was also governed to quit at an indicated 110 mph. Considering that the speedometer was 2 to 3 mph optimistic at 70, I imagine the real speed was probably closer to 105 at that "indicated" 110! That means that your 3.5 L V6 Odyssey "minivan (!)" would walk away from by 4.6 L V8 T-Bird to the tune of 15 to 20 mph.
You'll pardon me if I don't have to much sympathy for you!
PS: Who really needs to do better than 125 mph in a minivan anyway?
