2000 Honda Odyssey Minivan LX 4dr Minivan


Review

This van has been amazing. Still reliable, still 24mpg on the highways, about 18-20 in town. Always had seat covers, so they look new. It's hauled kids, bikes, camping stuff, dump loads, lumber... everything. Still only preventive maintenance except for normal items like headlights. The ONLY problem we've had is the door seals sticking for the two sliding doors. They've been replaced, treated with a variety of non-stick films. Get worse after a rain. Luckily we've had a drought in CA. No reason to get another, its the reliable box.

Review

I loved my car, but the transmission is a piece of junk. The door mechanisms are terrible. We replaced them five times, and the doors freeze shut in bad weather.

Review

No longer a Honda fan. My 2000 odyssey is on it's 5th transmission. The first failed at about 55000. Honda put 3 rebuilt transmissions in, one only lasted about 15,000 miles. The fifth i put in at an independent dealer who rebuilt it. We bought new and had all work done at the dealership, took good care of it. Honda Corporate refused to pay for the last transmission. I feel that since they know there are problems with the transmissions they should take responsiblity for them. They advertise that 80% of their Honda's are on the road 20 years later, they should keep them running by replacing defective transmissions for 20 years. I expected to keep this for 20 years.


Best Features

Back seat drops down easily to make for large carrying ability. Back seat up allows for tall items to be carried. Middle seats can be together or separate. Smooth ride (when transmission is working) and easy to handle comfortable. good visibility.


Worst Features

Reliable transmissions!

Review

Purchased Odyssey new in April 2000. Had a '92 Chrysler minivan previously which was the most unreliable vehicle ever. Have 4 kids and needed something large. Now has 113,000 miles, extremely reliable (routine maintenance only) except for transmission. Replaced transmission last year at 105,000 miles. Honda split the cost based on extended warranty for transmission. Sliding doors stick in wet weather. 16-18 MPG city, 22-25 MPG highway at 70-75 MPH. Reasonable for a heavy vehicle. Still solid with no squeaks or rattles. Don't use to too often anymore but it runs great. Own three other Hondas and Odyssey has been just as reliable.


Best Features

Panoramic view out front windows. Crisp handling for its size. Room for a large family, dog and luggage for a long trip. Excellent A/C on hot days.


Worst Features

Sliding doors stick. Acceleration adequate which gets leisurely with a heavy load. Wind noise on highway.

Review

Bought the van from first owners a few years ago after our first kid and before the 2nd. Didn't realize the van had problems. Check engine light went on after 2 days. Called the seller and they pretended they don't know about it. There was a recall on the problem but they never took it in. Long story short it is the cat converter thing. It has been 15,000 miles since we have been driving on that check engine light so far it is just a light. The transmission slips when I back it in on our uphill driveway but no major transmission problems yet. Awesome space I use it to haul stuff around all the time after the 3rd seat fall flat include 8 ft dry walls !! : )


Best Features

Has the power when you gun it, interior room and space, 3rd row seat is great and very useful. Has decent space back there too.


Worst Features

Cat converter, transmission the recall should have been for a longer period it is for 5 years and 100,000 miles, we are under the 100,000 miles but don't qualify because of the years. Sliding doors do tend to get stuck but still you get a lot for your money if you buy it used.
