Van was shaking during acceleration at highway speeds. Initially thought it was engine mounts but I had 3 replaced already so we replaced the rear mount and the issue was still there. Finally replaced both the right and left the driveshafts and the issues was fixed! The right rear brake caliper was sticking causing the brake pad to wear faster than the left so that was serviced and new brake pads installed.

The right sliding door refused to close in the cold weather we are experiencing. After repeated attempts to slam it shut, the door came off the track. We had to drive home with the door half hanging out. The repair shop put it back but we cannot open that door anymore until a permanent repair is done. The shop mentioned that this is a very common problem on the Odyssey. Given that this is a 12 year old vehicle, I am looking for a used door. Another issue we have experienced lately is the blue factory paint is coming off in chunks...

Th EX-L model has the CM system - Variable Cylinder management. So it cuts off the rear bank of cylinders when the ECO light comes on. Over time, this seems to either freeze up the oil rings on the piston, or cause excessive wear on cylinder walls -- both cause oil consumption. Solution is to install a VCM disabling item -- see ebay -- and then to try and unfreeze the rings by letting soak in seafoam, or similar. Moderate success.

Told dealer the AC would periodically go to hot along with an increase in engine temperature. They replaced the compressor for $2100. Had same problem after repair. Dealer said it needed a condenser fan, costing another $600. Took several weeks to fix. Hoping it is fixed this time, as first repair cost was a waste of money.
