1999 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan
I bought this car just for the Honda
reputation used with 24k miles. Great
long distance runner, people mover and
multipurpose vehicle. It drives smooth
and quiet. I have put over 55k miles
on the car and have had to change the
battery, brakes, tires (a few times)
and rear side window which slipped out
of its frame. It has a Honda recall on
the tranny which I haven't had
problems yet with but am starting to
feel it a bit now. Tire balancing has
been a problem with all the new tires.
Overall, quite satisfied. I would also
look at the Toyota Sienna. It is
smaller but has a tighter feel to it.
Folding 3rd seat, Captains chairs,
smooth and quiet engine, overall
reliability and spacious cabin.
PUT IN A TRIP COMPUTER!!
Also, a smoother shifting
transmission. They roll back in Drive
when on a hill (standard feature) -
that's scary!. Improve the auto
sliding doors, they stick sometimes
and the alarm stays on. Also add a
functional roof rack as a standard
