The 99 Honda Odyssey - Poor Reliability
By Pat Leake on
Vehicle1999 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan
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
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.
