Best Compromise Vehicle
By loon ranger on
1996 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan
Bought used and averaged 22000
miles/yr for next 4 years. Love the car
and the room. Service costs are a bit
high, but no major repairs. ABS light
reset is only repair at 117,000 miles.
Perfect vehicle for long trips with 4
tall people. Versitility is outstanding,
hauled all kinds of "stuff". Think of it
more as a "tall wagon" than a
minivan. Trying to keep it in excellent
condition because they don't sell the
same size any more.
Legroom, front & rear (more than
anything else), swing out rear doors,
folding 3rd seat and removable
second seats, sunroof!, overall
comfort, quality build
BRING IT BACK!! (Accord wagon,
maybe?) This model is still sold in
Japan and Australia w/ V6 and 4WD.
I would buy in a second.
Needs intermitent rear wiper,
variable intermitent wipers, tach
