Bought this van at an auction, didn't know it had a transi issue. $2200 later with the recommended upgraded rebuild kit & it has been great since. Getting the van at a discount made the transi rebuild isue to tolerate. Cannot imagine buying
& financing at full price and having a transmission go. We love it. Had it for over a year. Now at 190k.
I like the styling and the drive. It seems mechanically sound. It replaced a 98 Quest that was totaled. The Quest didn't have the storage the Odyssey does with the large amount behind the back tires.
