1999 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan
Great van, handles well, very
comfortable, looks good. Lots of
power, but suspension is not made to
pull or carry heavy loads. About 20-21
mpg, consistantly. I like the comfort
and reliability - it is built using
unibody construction, in comparison to
a truck chassis. Easily fits 6 people
with lots of room, 7 if necessary.
The rear fold-down seat is great!
Middle seats are easy to remove, I have
carried plywood and drywall several
times. Electric sliding doors are also
great, with kids.
We have the factory CD and cassette -it
needs more power and better sound. We
just went through rotors (3rd brake
job), in 70K miles. This is excessive
even for front discs, and is not our
normal pattern. Still, I definitely
recommend this vehicle.
