Just verifying the hypothesis that even the mighty Honda has reliability issues, my sister in law's new Honda Odyssey with 3K miles just had its transmission go out. She put it in drive, gave it gas... van no roll forward. Luckily, Honda has offered to trade them a new van.
The dealer made a comment like "I'm amazed Honda hasn't formally issued a recall." Seems to me like Honda is most concerned with their image of reliability being publicly tarnished.
