We searched for several minivans before deciding on the Odyssey. We now wish we had searched longer. Our van is six years old and has 66,000 miles. In that time we have had three recalls, power sliding door problems (which the dealer could not duplicate), numerous paint chips requiring repainting of surfaces, and now it is necessary to have a new transmission installed. The dealer said that Honda has worked out many of the problems which were in the original models, but I feel as though this should have been taken care of in the R&D phase. We have friends who have Ford Freestars with over 40,000 miles and no problems at all. Please look farther than the over rated Honda Odyssey!
