Default Brake Pedal Switch & engine mounts need replacing

I have a 03 Odessey, with 60,000 miles. I've had problems intermitantly with
it disengaging from park. Honday said the brake pedal switch needed replacing
and as a separate issue the engine mounts were broken and cracked. I've
never had any of my vehicles have either of these problems and most of them
have been 7-10yrs old with lots of miles. Is this normal or is Honda taking
me for a ride?

Do you mean to say that you've had problems intermittently with it NOT
disengaging from park ? ?

There are TSB's about the shifter disengagement problem, and is sounds
like the DEALER is taking you for a ride. Honda can't be everywhere at
all times watching the franchisees.

Have you been using the shifter release trick in the manual whenever
it's won't budge for you? See page one in this document if you don't
have the manual in front of you:

PDI Sheets for Odyssey
http://www.tegger.com/hondafaq/tsb/odyssey/x98-077e.pdf

This TSB describes a different recall on a Civic, but the shifter cable
adjustment is (basically) the same for an Odyssey.
http://www.tegger.com/hondafaq/tsb/civic/x94-010e.pdf
Sometimes just lubing the front end of the cable (remove small cover
under engine) is all you need, or adjust the cable so your dash
indicators work better and your shifter will release properly. CR-V has
similar problems if the adjustment is out, or cable gets gummed up at
the front end. It's common to most Hondas and usually gets WAY worse
when the weather turns cold. . . Your dealer should be able to fix it in
about 5 minutes (if the switch isn't actually shot).

I don't know about your motor mounts . . . Why not try an independent
mechanic?

The brake switch is a common problem with locking in park. As for the motor
mounts they are also a common problem. They are liquid filled and often
leak. For lots more information go to www.odyclub.com forum and do a
search...

My '03 Accord doesn't have the motor mount problem, but apparently
Honda's brake switches were not very well crafted for that year, as mine
went in less than 50m miles. The symptoms of it beginning to go are brake
lights that stay on when your not pushing the pedal, and intermittent
problems getting it to shift out of Park. Replacing the switch fixed it
all. And you'll notice that the replacement switch has a beefier piston.

If by " problems intermittently with it disengaging from park", you mean
that you are unable to get it out of Park. Then have the switch replaced.
It's a $10.00 part and an easy DIY install. If, on the other hand, the
shifter is disengaging from Park on it's own, that's a bit more serious.
Try a different Honda (or Acura) dealer if you feel you're being lied to.
