I just want to throw this out and see what happens
I bought an 2002 Oddy last August and have put just over
10,000 klm's on it (80,500 klm's) total. Last March 27 had the trans
fluid flushed after noticing hard shifing at 40 klh. In June had the
first blinking "D" light on dash but no code. Then in end of July had
three different times the "D" light came on. On July 30 it gave up a
code 27-1 (4th pressure switch failture shifting is delayed). Of
course the warrenty is over as of March 25/2007.
The dealer is quoting a new transmision @$ 4100.00.
My questions are 1) has anyone had any sucsess(sp) going to a
rebuilder rather than the "new" trans
2)has anyone had any luck with getting Honda Canada to pony up
some of the cost of the trans?
I believe that this is an issue with Honda Canada and a known problem
with their transmissions and not a repair issue with the dealer.
BTW I have a good relationship with the dealer and feel that good
things will come of that after I deal with Honda Canada.
Thanks for any input
Did you follow the Honda service manual recommendation for total
replacement of the fluid, or did you take it to Joe Sixpack who said
"yeah, I can flush that, it'll be $80"?
Did the van have the recall performed?
I think you're looking at a new transmission. Or not, depending on how
well you can sweet talk your Honda dealer and/or Honda itself.
Oh, I see I *really* touched a nerve, enough to get two
knee-jerks from you Spam Boy.
Please do continue to SPAM away butt-Boy.

Thanks Woody, I will be taking it to the "Oddy Club" , I guess what
I was looking for was if all the transmission issues are the same or
is there more than one issue with the transmission. Also could a part
or part be replaced and be done for less at a rebuilder. I don't want
to end up with a "new " transmision and 80,000 k later have the same
I guess it chuffs me to see a great company with a great product not
own up to the issue with their transmissons.
Unfortunately you will probably have the problem again down the road. The
problems in the transmission are inherent in the design. One thing is the
transmission filter that Honda does not even recognize as being there and do
not have a replacement schedule for it. Very few Honda mechanics even know
it is there. The 99-01 four speed were really bad, the 02-03 seem to be
having a lot of problems. I haven't seen too much with problems with the 04.
The 05 on I believe are redesigned and haven't seen much on them.
