1/16/2019 - Testimonial by Honda Dealer Assistant Service Manager
Installed and works wonderfully so far. I didn’t suspect any issues. It’s a new to me 08 Odyssey with only 120k and want to make sure I get another 120k on it problem free. As a former Honda Dealer Assistant Service Manager I wanted to make sure these repetitive issues didn’t occur on my motor. Less than two weeks from purchase of the Odyssey to install of the VCMTUNER. Thanks for putting a quality product on the market.

9/16/2019 -- Oil consumption is no longer a problem
I just wanted to give some feedback on my recent order.
This product works exactly as described and I couldn't be happier with it.
My wife and I bought our 2010 Honda Odyssey brand new in 2010.
It's been progressively using more and more oil between oil changes...we actually had to add about a quart of oil every 1000 miles!
We've now driven about 3000 miles after installing the VCMTuner II and haven't had to add any oil yet - wow!
We were also experiencing vibration while driving and figured we'd have to replace the engine mounts at some point. We've been living with that problem for at least a couple years. Well, that problem has also been solved. While I am extremely disappointed in Honda, I can't say enough good things about your product to "fix" their issue.
1/17/2019 -- Addresses torque converter shifting, cruise control issues
I have a 2012 Honda Odyssey, which I bought used with 125k miles. The
VCM mode was rough and had the engine and transmission jerking when
engaging and disengaging. When using the cruise control on the highway,
the transmission would sometimes not lock up the torque converter until
the vehicle was going up a slight incline. I researched this and found
out VCM had caused a lot of engine problems on these cars, and there had
been a lawsuit against Honda to fix them.
I found several products designed to disable the VCM mode, but VCMTuner
had been around for a long time and seemed to have good reviews, so
I bought the latest version of their product, VCM Tuner II. The
installation was really easy, and took only about 10 minutes, and it
plugged right into the engine wiring harness. In the Odyssey there is
not a lot of room between the battery box and the air cleaner, but it
can be made to fit. The VCMTuner II worked the first time, with no
"Check Engine" light. The dreaded "ECO" light never came on again, the
water temperature shows normal temperature, and there was no more rough
driveline jerking. As a bonus, the transmission torque converter lockup
function works perfectly now. I can't understand that, but I'm happy it
has been fixed. After 4000 miles, the VCM Tuner II has worked
flawlessly, no problems at all, and the engine doesn't burn any oil.
Fuel economy has suffered a little, I get 1-2 mpg less, but it's a good
trade off. I was astounded to learn replacing the active engine mounts can cost $1500. I'm sure replacing broken piston rings would not be cheap. I'm glad I found VCMTuner and can recommend buying the VCM Tuner II.

Ok, everything that can be said about the improvements the VCMTUNER II can do have been said. All I can say is this. I did NOT like the way the van ran. After the VCMTUNER II was installed I DO like the way it runs. The testimony's on the website are true
Jim Hill. 2013 Odyssey 107,000 miles.
Got the vcmtuner yesterday in the mail, it shipped Wednesday, and I got an email that morning with the tracking number. I installed it this morning after the van sat all night, install was quick and easy and some nice detailed instructions were included with the unit.
I drove the van about 25-30 miles today with the tuner at the default position. No ECO light and no check engine lights came on. The van drives so much smoother without VCM, it really is night and day. For reference the high was about 47* today. I hadn't paid attention before but my temp gauge now sits about 1/3 of the way up. That seems slightly lower than what I've seen but no check engine light so far. If/when I start to get the ECO light I will pop the hood and turn the dial up. I really like the easy adjustability of the unit.
Also wanted to add that I got another email from the seller saying that if I had any problems or questions to feel free to contact him. A great experience overall. I will report back again down the road but so far I can definitely recommend the vcmtuner and the seller is a stand up guy.

I just put the part on my van, it runs so much better and smoother.
I'm finally in control and there's no more shaking and jerking between shifts.
Easy and quick install. Instructions were easy to follow. No check engine light.

The VCMTuner is working great! I really like that it has a variable resistor, to avoid changing out the part it during winter/summer. Prompt shipment and great product. Thanks!
Ryan - 2016 Honda Odyssey
The ability to dial in the resistance makes this the only harness to consider.
One welcome and unforeseen benefit is a slight but noticeable reduction in the aggressiveness of the grade logic transmission. It never made sense to me that you have to give the car gas to coast up to a red light or stop sign. The transmission now behaves in a similar manner as that of my 2012 4cyl- still pulls back a bit but does allow some coasting. That to me is a really big plus
Robert - 2012 Honda Accord
Received my tuner today. Plugged it in and went for a brief drive after it warmed up. No ECO light, ECO vibration, etc. Currently at 142k miles and the rear motor mount is bad. Tired of the oil consumption and vibration from VCM. Very happy with the product so far.
Eric - 2005 Odyssey EXL
Thank you for the product. This will save me from selling the car. I bought it six weeks ago and the vibration is the ruining experience. Already had honda replace the TC under warranty without fixing the issue and further digging brought me here. The symptoms described are exactly what I'm experiencing. Thank you again for your help.
Mark - 2013 Pilot
Wow! I can’t believe it worked! I installed it on a 2015 Honda Odyssey and it runs as good as the day I drove it off the lot. I recently drove 800 miles to Florida over the holidays and so I was expecting a drop in gas mileage, but to my surprise my gas mileage was the same as when the eco mode use to kick in. I highly recommend this product.
Steve - 2015 Odyssey
It works. Car is smoother than ever. Thanks so much. This problem was such a headache. I can't thank you enough.
Michael - 2008 Honda Accord
Hey bud, thank you for the super fast shipping, I installed the tuner today, and got the P0118 code and your instructions were right on as the reason for the code. I cleared the code, all is good, and left the resistance setting as it arrived.. Thanks again!!!
Tony - 2012 Pilot
Hi, I purchased one of your units and applied it to my 2005 Honda Odyssey. We had a short Spring Break road trip and I’m really happy, the van is so much more pleasant to drive – no more shudder as the ECO mode cuts in and out.
Tony - 2012 Pilot
Just wanted to send a quick thank you for your extra time. Installed it works perfectly. No more weird jerks or vibrations. Glad I did this with only 24000 miles. Anything I can do to promote your product let me know..
Barney - 2015 Honda Odyssey
I ordered and installed your VCMTUNER last night. Just want to let you know your VCMTUNER is work perfect (5stars) I wish that I had known this device exist long ago before spend $2,500 recently at Honda dealer and still did not get it fix. Now my van is better than new. It had so much power and I don’t see smoke come out anymore. I don’t know how long and how well people know about your device, I would love to spread the word out to people I know that own Honda/Acura about this device. My van currently had 240,000 mile. Hope this device and get it to 300,000
Khanh Nguyen - 2006 Honda Odyssey
Your product arrived a day earlier than expected and I just installed it. My suv has never been so smooth, responsive and quiet. Best money I’ve EVER spent period! I reaped multiple benefits and now my 103,000 Mile vehicle is better than new. I also drove my 2012 Pilot back to back with my friend’s 2012 Highlander (with the exact same tires), and now my Honda is smoother than his Toyota! Thank You for developing such an amazing aftermarket electronic device that improves on what Honda engineers created. Sincerely,
Randy Fox- 2012 Honda Pilot - Eldridge, MD

We installed the vcm tuner II about two months ago, and I was again today noticing how smooth the Pilot is to drive ( it's the wife's, so I only drive it occasionally). Take care.
