I am a second owner of an Odyssey, with the same torque problem now at 110k miles. Dealer is telling me that they fixed the problem back when the original owner had it....but it is now doing the same exact thing. I am trying to find out if they've had to fix it a second time around.

Our 2003 Honda Odyssey is experiencing serious gear and transmission problems. What is worse is trying to get the help we need in order to correct this problem. We bought this as a used van with the counseled knowledge that Honda is a great car; however, this is ridiculous.

Do you drive a 2003 HONDA ODYSSEY?

Just because a car has been recalled does not mean it is not a reliable car. Millions of cars get recalled every year. Recalls often involve problems that are rare but could cause a serious problem if they occur. So the risk to any given driver is often remote, even though there may be a few high-profile incidents traced to the problem.
