- Honda Odyssey 2003
My Odyssey had a fairly classic failure at 114000 miles: Slipping between second and third gear with total failure before I could get it in to a transmission shop. I had to replace the whole thing with a rebuilt Honda transmission with a 3 yr/36000 mile warranty. I got no relief from Honda, but I bought the van used at 40K. After the rebuilt unit was put in, I figured I may as well drive the miles out of the van. Currently at 180,000 with no further problems.
I will point out that I've had similar transmission failures on domestic vehicles - but the transmisions are far cheaper to have replaced. After replacing the transmission in my Ford Taurus, I put another 140,000 miles on it without any more trouble (and it was still running when I sold it at 250,000 miles).
