1999 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan
When the vehicle was new it had reliably served its main purpose of hauling kids to sports events and carrying family gear while on vacation. A few years ago we started experiencing problems with the operation of the auto sliding doors (bearing required $ replacement), followed by clogged EGR (poor quality of gas contributed), starter, and now transmission. We bought Honda for its reliability but buyer beware of the first model year of an entirely new redesigned vehicle.
Room, storage and automatic sliding doors. On long trips there is plenty of room for kids to store games in between seats. Picking up a friend is never an issue of space.
Ensure Reliability. Hopefully by now Honda has corrected all the major issues described. It's going to be hard to purchase Honda again having such a disappointing and costly experience.
