POWER TRAIN: AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

8/25/2004 - GREENACRES, FL
WHEN SHIFTING UP FROM A LOWER GEAR (FROM 1ST TO 2ND) MOST NOTABLY AT LOW SPEEDS, AROUND 20 TO 25 MPH, THE ENGINE FEELS LIKE IT IS REVVING HIGHER THAN NORMAL BEFORE SHIFTING INTO THE NEXT GEAR. WHEN IT DOES SHIFT, IT SHIFTS HARD AND MAKES A CLANKING NOISE. IT FEELS AS THOUGH THE TRANSMISSION IS STICKING, PREVENTING IT FROM CHANGING GEARS IN A NORMAL FASHION. I HAVE NOT NOTICED IT OCCURRING AT ANY SPECIFIC TIME, IT SEEMS TO HAPPEN AT RANDOM INTERVALS WHEN DRIVING AT LOWER SPEEDS. I HAVE TAKEN THE VAN IN FOR INSPECTION AND THE TECHNICIAN COULD NOT RECREATE THIS PROBLEM. TOOK VAN ON JULY 08, CONTACTED HONDA, THE PROBLEM STILL HAS YET TO BE RESOLVED. THIS IS ONE OF SIX PROBLEMS I HAD TO TAKE THE VAN IN FOR. AFTER HAVING THE VAN FOR TWO WEEKS, ONLY TWO NON-MECHANICAL PROBLEMS WERE PARTIALLY RESOLVED AND ONE NON-MECHANICAL PROBLEM WAS RESOLVED COMPLETELY.

8/25/2004 - GREENACRES, FL
WHEN DRIVING AT A CONSISTENT SPEED BETWEEN 30 AND 50 MPH, ENGINE FEELS LIKE IT IS LOSING POWER AND THE TACHOMETER NEEDLE FLUCTUATES, THIS WILL OCCUR FOR A FEW SECONDS AND THEN RETURN TO NORMAL. IT SEEMS TO HAPPEN REGARDLESS IF THE ENGINE IS COOL OR HOT. TOOK TO HONDA DEALER AND TECHNICIAN ONLY TOOK THE VAN OUT FOR ONE TEST DRIVE WITHOUT EXPERIENCING THE PROBLEM. I TOLD SERVICE ADVISOR THAT THE PROBLEM OCCURS INTERMITTENTLY. TOOK VAN ON JULY 08, CONTACTED HONDA, STILL NO RESOLUTION.

EXTERIOR LIGHTING: HEADLIGHTS: HIGH/LOW BEAM DIMMER SWITCH

7/15/2004 - PAHRUMP, NV
THE HIGH BEAM HAS A SINGLE HALOGEN LIGHT FOR BOTH SETTINGS. WHEN SWITCHING FROM LOW TO HIGH BEAM THE LIGHT FAILS TO PROJECT FAR AHEAD . THIS REDUCES EXTENDED VISIBILITY AS NEEDED FOR THE HIGH BEAM. DEALERSHIP STATED THAT THEY WERE UNABLE TO MAKE OBSERVATIONS DUE TO BUSINESS HOURS IN ORDER TO CORRECT THE PROBLEM. WITH A SINGLE HALOGEN BULB, WHEN SWITCHING FROM LOW BEAM TO HIGH BEAM, THE LOW BEAM ELEMENT GOES OUT AND NO LONGER WORKS RESULTING IN A DARK SENSATION AHEAD OF THE VEHICLE BECAUSE THE HIGH BEAM LIGHT IS FURTHER OUT AND IS TOO DISPERSED. HIGH BEAMS ARE UNUSABLE IN THIS CONDITION. (PER TELEPHONE CONVERSATION W/ CONSUMER ON 07/02/04 )

THIRD TIME THEY SAID THEY SEE THE VIBRATIONS BUT CANNOT FIND ANYTHING WRONG. THEY SAID THEY TEST DROVE 3 OTHER VEHICLES WITH SIMILAR MILAGE (13.5 K) AND FOUND THAT THEY ALL HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. I CALLED HONDA AND THEY SAID THAT THEY CANNOT DO ANYTHING ABOUT THIS.

VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

6/8/2004 - REINHOLDS, PA
ON FOUR SEPARATE OCCASIONS, FIRST IN JANUARY 2004, AND MOST RECENTLY ON MAY 24, 2004, MY 2004 HONDA ODYSSEY LX LURCHED VIOLENTLY, CAUSING DRIVER AND PASSENGERS TO BE THROWN FORWARD. DRIVER WAS ABLE TO MAINTAIN CONTROL OF THE CAR ON ALL OCCASIONS. ON EACH OCCASION, THE CAR WAS TRAVELING APPROX. 40 MPH. DESPITE TWO VISITS TO TWO DIFFERENT HONDA DEALERS, NOTHING IS BEING DONE TO FIX THIS PROBLEM. AMERICAN HONDA CORP. ALSO REFUSES HELP. DRIVER OF THE VEHICLE FEARS THAT A SERIOUS ACCIDENT COULD RESULT IF THE CAR IS TRAVELING ON THE HIGHWAY WHEN THIS LURCHING OCCURS.
