I love my 1998 Odyssey! It's 9 years old and has never given me any trouble. I currently have 110,000 miles on it, and aside from routine maintenance, I never have a concern. It is boring to drive, but it never pretended to be a sports car. It is very comfortable, and I wish Honda still made them this size. I would buy another one. Sometimes I wish it would die, so I could get something sportier, but then common sense kicks in and I remember what a great investment this vehicle was/is! I hope I can get another 100,000 miles out of it.
Small size, great maneuverability, easy to park, great gas mileage (25 city, maybe 27 highway), quiet engine, flexible interior.
Well, they took care of this with the newer Odyssey models, but I would have liked the sliding doors.
