I heard of the problem with the Honda transmissions. That is exactly why I unloaded my two year old Acura MDX. You can tell how bad that transmission design is by just monitoring the transmission fluid.

Anyway, what have you heard about Toyotas? Is it the engine sludge issue?

I've since been told that the engine in the Odyssey is too powerful for the transmission that they use. They do not have a unique transmission in that minivan.

Yes, they have the sludge buildup factor in their 4 cylinders, but there may be other problems as well. Their legendary reputation seems to be unjust. I must go now, but maybe we can get into a discussion in the next few days.
