I had a '00 EX, purchased new. My 18 year-old son totaled it last month. I want to get another Ody but not that year because of the trans problems. I don't really know anything about later-generation models. Which model year has a better trans?

The 2007 or later model is supposed to have the more robust tranny from the Ridgeline truck.
Please correct me if I am wrong.

CR rates 2007 transmission poorly. Checked the Consumer Reports April 2011 issue page 90 for the reliability history chart.
2007 Odyssey gets black circle (the worst) for trans major and half black (worse than average) for trans minor. Also black (the worst) for suspension, brakes. Engine and fuel system rate red circle (best). Overall, rates half black circle (worse than average) for 2007.

which years has best transmission ratings?

I don't have access to the '11 Consumer Reports. Can someone post the best years between 2008 and 2011? We are considering either the EX-L with Nav or the Touring in the 09, 10, or 11 years. Any advice is much appreciated!! Thank you!
