The 99 Honda Odyssey - Poor Reliability

ReviewHaving previously owned a 1982 Honda Accord that ran flawlesly for 20 years, I have been very disappointed with the '99 Honda Odyssey. Continuing problems required the ignition switch to be replaced, the sliding door repaired, catalytic concerter replaced, and replacement of the engine EGR have made this vehicle a nightmare to own. Currently, the vehicle is inoperable and requires a new transmission that will cost $5,000. All of this within the first three and a half years of ownership!
Best FeaturesThe poor reliability has overshadowed favorite features, because the van does not run to enjoy them.
Worst FeaturesHonda needs to return to their previous Corporate Culture whereby the name Honda stood for quality. The '99 Honda Odyssey is evidence that the Honda Corporation has lost its emphasis on quality and reliability. New Corporate leadership need to return to this emphasis on quality.
