2004 Honda Odyssey 4dr Minivan, ext.

240-horsepower 3.5L V6 5-speed automatic FWD

111000 mi US $350 Transmission shifting rough. Flushed and serviced transmission. 
125220 C $3800 Van stopped working and would not switch gears. Needed to have entire transmission replaced. Drive train was jammed which led to the need for repair. 
103000 US $3600 First transmission failure. Required ~ $3600 rebuild from Honda specialist repair shop. 
140000   The rebuilt transmission began to fail (random shifting, rough shifting, etc). 
124500 US $3800 Mechanic said the cooling system is inadequate and that the transmission overheated destroying the torque converter and the pieces were throughout the transmission. Replaced transmission and added transmission cooler. 
160000   Leaking seal on Front Left Axle. 
73000 US $340 Shuttering in van when van is between 25 & 30 just before the automatic transmission shifts to the next higher gear.

55000 US $1700 Transmission was OK, but the case seal was leaking fluid.  
74000 US $400 Soleinoid replaced. 
79000   Also there is a whine when under load - was told the transmissions whine and the warranty company wouldn't replace it for a whine. 
100000   Jeff the service writer at Roberts Automall told me the noise was differential. After drive with tech wawas tood it was intake. Wouldn't replace transmission. He would feel safe driving it for 5-10 years as is. Got Honda America involved. Went to Scott Honda for 2nd opinion. Ed service writer called me. Told me they were replacing transmission. Ordered transmission. Sending it to be painted (recall ) very happy and without transportation. Honda doesn't provide rental. 
100000   Replacement of transmission fixed the whining differential. 
90000 US $330 Suddenly, transmission would no longer transmit torque effectively, fluid loss from pressure relief valve. No codes or internal problems found. Full fluid flush corrected the problem. 
158000   Check Engine light came on, code was the dreaded P0740, Shop flushed transmission, did not correct problem. I cleaned solenoid tubes, did not correct. Rebuild needed to correct problem, at a cost of up to $3200, sold van instead.
