Brand new 2010 Honda odyssey Touring within 40

\015 Brand new 2010 Honda Odyssey Touring (within 40 min. out of dealership) - VSA light and loud alarm went off and grinding noise (like driving on Tire rims).\015\012Turned off VSA was ok, but, upon resetting VSA back on, the same occurance kept happening- despite dirrerent speeds and curves -both on highway and local roads.\015\012We live 2 1/2hrs from original Seller Agency, and Minivan was flatbedded next morning --returned to a different locale W. NC Honda Dealer, who confirmed condition and said "they are clueless" and had never experienced this problem. They are calling in Honda Rep on Mon AM, Nov.2 and making conferencecalls with Honda Engineers.\015\012\015\012 (1) Is this a lemon (2) a dangerous "continuing" problem or (3) can it be repaired/replace easily and quickly by thos "novice" Dealership Technical Service??? Should we get a new replacement for Safety Sake?\015\012 Please note - this is not just "lights" --- it is violent alarm with sounds like a "sump pump cycle" --plus the side problem : of loud grinding. \015\012 The car odometer showed 84 miles at dealership (so it was somewhat "tested"during local delivery service). We experienced the problem after about 40 minutes into our drive - first occuring going up a Winding MountainTop Highway. Please reply All - user-laymen and experts!!\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 20-05-2019

If you're still having issues, it could be as simple as low oil. It's not low enought to throw off the oil pressure light, but it can mess with selonoid and sounds like the vehicle is shaking/grinding. It should be triggered when you're making a sharper turn, throwing whatever little oil is left around the pan.
I can’t be much help on this one (too new for my experience), but your manual will say this (which probably isn’t all that helpful either).
\015\012The vehicle stability assist (VSA) system helps to stabilize the vehicle during cornering if the vehicle turns more or less than desired. It also assists you in maintaining traction while accelerating on loose or slippery road surfaces. It does this by regulating the engine’s output and by selectively applying the brakes.
\015\012When VSA activates, you may notice that the engine does not respond to the accelerator in the same way it does at other times. There may also be some noise from the VSA hydraulic system. You will also see the VSA activation indicator blink.
\015\012The VSA system cannot enhance the vehicle’s driving stability in all situations and does not control your vehicle’s entire braking system. It is still your responsibility to drive and corner at reasonable speeds and to leave a sufficient margin of safety.
\015\012On touring models you will also see a ‘‘CHECK VSA SYSTEM’’ message on the multiinformation display if there is a problem with the VSA system.
\015\012Without VSA, your vehicle still has normal braking and cornering ability, but it does not have VSA traction and stability enhancement.
\015\012The VSA system automatically turns on every time you start the engine, even if you turned it off the last time you drove the vehicle.
\015\012I’d get on the Honda people about the problem, especially since you just got the car. I would think that the alarming sounds you are hearing have to do with the unit working the brakes when it shouldn't be, but that's a guess.
\015\012Hope this helps some.
