After 5 years and 71,000 miles I've few
complaints. Other than the wheels, it looks, runs
and handles like it did day one. No shakes, no
rattles, no squeaks. Maybe people with problems
just have bad karma.
Only real complaint is with the finish on the alloy
wheels, which has not held up. Moisture go in
under clear coat and severe peeling on two wheels.
Transmission has been solid, and other than rear
brake squeal (when wet) that ended after I cleaned
out the accumulated brake dust out of the drums,
brakes were flawless. Front went 70K miles without
Once I replaced the OEM Michelins with Bridgestone
Turanzas, the road noise was significantly reduced.
Cargo capacity, seating flexibility (the folding third

After reviewing and comparing every
minivan made, we chose the Honda and
couldn't have been happier. Power is
plentiful, storing the backseat is easy
( if you don't mind removing the
headrests). Cup holders seem to be an
afterthought. There are plenty, they
just don't hold very well. Lots of
room, can take six on a week long road
trip with all the stuff and have room
to spare. Missing AWD and occasional
glitch with power doors are only
drawbacks that would make us look at
another brand next time around. All in
all, very solid car and it fit us
