9: Transmission Issues
Perhaps one of the most overlooked problems for Honda in recent years was the issues that plagued the transmissions. Honda is traditionally a world-renowned company for quality and reliability, but the sudden transmission failures in the Odyssey minivan left many drivers scratching their heads (via Car Brain).
The second generation Odysseys were notoriously guilty for having this happen to them. The transmission replacement would be expensive and often leave the minivan incapacitated. This transmission failure issue followed into the next generation. Honda would improve reliability as time went on, but early models are still problematic.
