2000 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan

Review

The first year we owned our van was great. Starting with the first summer our luck ran out and every summer for 3 years we'd have to replace the transmission. Honda helped us out once but after that we were on our own. During research my husband found out that the transmission used on this 2000 model had so many problems that Honda never used it again. Today we still own it but are hunting for another vehicle because our 3rd transmission has started to act up and before it dies we need to get out of this money pit of a car. we were a couple hundred from paying it off but instead are putting that money towards another vehicle. My husband swears we'll never own another Honda again.

Some Issues

2000 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan

Review

Two big problems with the 2000 Odyssey. First, the transmission tends to break and has design issues. Second, the automatic sliding doors tend to break also. Both of them on my Odyssey have had issues, and are expensive to fix. Other than those, it is comfortable and handles well for a minivan.

A Greek Tragedy: The Fatal Flaw

2000 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan

Review

The long-term history of this vehicle has been moments of love interspersed with tragic disappointment. Our first mistake was not realizing that buying a Canadian-registered Honda in the US would cut us off from all factory support. Honda USA wouldn't help us because the car was Canadian. Honda Canada wouldn't help us because it was purchased in the US. Recall work performed for free for my neighbors cost me money. This is especially galling since all 2000 Odysseys were built in a single factory in Ontario. I will never buy another Honda. Problems: short-lived brakes, doors, more doors, transmission at 78k, another tranny at 109k, squealing brakes, broken seat, radio, smog control.

Great people mover

2000 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan

Review

This vehicle has been the primary people mover for our family of six. It has towed our 2000 lb tent trailer all over North America. We probably run over the 3500 lb recommended towing capacity. We bought it used with 60 km and it currently has 180 km. In that time we have only done routine maintenance and replaced consumables (tire, brake pads). This vehicle has been run right at the limits of what is recommended and hasn't given us a spot of trouble.

Buyer Beware

Review

Three transmission failures in 7 years. Sliding doors can be very finicky. Latest is that we have to replace a sender unit for $300. Be very careful when buying used. Other than those major issues the van is great.

Info for Those of You Buying Used!

2000 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan

Review

We bought this at 101K miles and drove it two years till 127K miles until I totaled it in an accident (nobody hurt; safety is great!). Biggest beef: EGR system clogged twice in two years ($200-$300 cost to fix each time). Catalytic converter gave out at 100K (fix $800). Water pump needed replacement at 119K ($800). We also found road noise pronounced and tiring (we suffer enough noise from our small children). If you're prepared to pay for repairs and maintenance, buying used may be a good idea. I figure that total cost of this van to us, in two years of ownership, was $2500 per year, counting purchase price (no financing, 6% sales tax, repairs, and maintenance (not counting gas or insurance

Very solid - no problems here

2000 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan

Review

I have owned a 91 Honda Civic, a 92 Honda Civic and now a 2000 Odyssey. I was skeptical about our electric doors - pretty solid except in the winter - they will be a bit sticky if you keep it outside. Otherwise, this has been very solid and we have had no repairs and no problems starting or running. Took a 5000 mile cross country trip right after we bought it. Did great without a single snag.

Let's be honest folks

2000 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan

Review

Bought this van because of "Honda quality". Now at 138K miles. 3 transmissions, cat converter, sliding doors that don't always close, 3 wheel alignments in 4 years, and loose bolts in front suspension still looking for that quality. Read the reviews of this minivan notice how many have problems yet the reviewer still mentions "Honda quality". Be honest people if the car had an American name you'd be trashing it. I wish it was as reliable as my Mazda and, yes, my Dodge.

Grateful for our Honda and Honda Service

2000 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan

Review

Our Honda Odyssey was purchased coming off of a lease. When we noticed that it had been used for towing we decided to purchase the extended warranty for peace of mind. So glad we did! The contacts on the sliding doors were replaced, also the transmission along with some minor things. Today the catalytic converter and the timing belt are being replaced at our cost out of warranty. This is our first major expense out of pocket. We've gotten great service and care! We own a 1997 Accord. It is very reliable, but we prefer driving and riding in our Honda Odyssey for the comfort and ease of getting in and out and the ride. We both have back problems. We would again purchase an Odyssey. We love it!!

Replaced 2000 Odyssey with Toyota Senia

2000 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan

Review

Good in beginning. Always had Front brake over heating issues in long Highway drives (not city). Speedometer (70=66MPH) and Odometer were off by 5% (likely to make it appear to get better gas millage). Major tire issues with original tires. At 65,000 replaced EGR $300. Replaced brakes every 20,000 miles $240. At 86,000 Catilic Converter & Motor Mounts $1,700. At 92,000 miles $1,200 to replace sliding door motor. We had 93,000 miles. At 100,000 they wanted $1,700 for timing belt/waterpump replacement. I have not had major transmition issues yet, but they were comming also. Trans upshifts had changed. Can't afford $4,000 dollors trans. It became a vehicle we could not afford to keep any more.
