Front brakes and rotors were changed several times. Last with drilled/slotted rotors. Vibration is less with those, but still there. This seems to be a problem with other people as well. So speed little vibration, higher speed increases vibration. Has been going over the years, is worse when in the mountains.

We were coming down a mountain and even though I was using the engine to slow down the brakes started pulsing and the steering wheel started shaking. Since that time the problem has gotten worse and now happens at highway speeds. The problem does not go away until the brakes have cooled completely down. I checked on line and found out that this has been a problem with the Odyssey's for years and happens even after replacing the pads and rotors. Our vehicle now has 74,000 miles on it and when the problem occurs the shaking of the steering wheel can be severe.

Brake rotors showed abnormal wear with little notice. In previous two weeks, the brakes appeared "soft" and have required firmer braking. When I took the vehicle in for new brake pads, the mechanic showed the rotors to us as warped and unable to be machined. We have about 55K miles on the vehicle and are not heavy brakers. Looking at the online forum, it is clear that there is an issue with the brake system and in particular with premature wear of the rotors. As an aside, we have never replaced our rotors in our 2003 Honda civic with 150K miles.
