Would Buy Again
By V McDevitt on
1999 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan
Have taken many, many 6-10 hour trips
with 4-6 adults and van was GREAT
(lots of room for all!). Drives solid
(you'll know when you test drive --
nothing else like it!) Reliability
has been pretty good but the squeaky
brakes are driving me crazy. Doors
are heavy; would have gone w/power
doors given choice again. After
market security/remote entry system
SUCKS (Code Alarm) -- have to be right
beside car for it to work. Wish it
had more bells and whistles. I'm
looking for a new car/van/SUV with the
power, space and gas mileage of the
Odyssey, but with more bells and
whistles. Not sure anything better
is out there ...
Power( (great acceleration!!), 3rd row
seat that drops away (use it every day
for something!), and middle seats that
move forward, backward and sideways.
Space, space, space! Cant beat the
3rd row seating space -- large adults
can sit back there comfortably.
Need auto shut off to preserve battery
when doors left open . Cup holders in
different spot for middle seats --
young kids have trouble reaching.
Need more bells and whistles -- like
power lumbar support in front seats,
digital control panel, etc.
