2000 Honda Odyssey Minivan EX 4dr Minivan


Review

Bought the van used with 20km. Certified so when the door motor died it was free. I now have 65km and no significant issues. Replaced timing belt and brakes and have intermittent issues with doors buzzing and check engine light coming on. Most are liveable issues with a 8-yr old car. It is tough to get transmission into D3 other than when I am parked, but I haven't really needed to do that all that often. Great car for long family vacations. I will probably keep the car for a few more years and get another Honda.


Best Features

After market leather seats. With 3 boys this is invaluable. Third row seat and depressed rear cargo area. Great highway mileage (24 mpg), but poor city mileage (13 mpg). Great cargo capacity.


Worst Features

Most of the changes have been made for later models. It sounds as if the transmission/power door/brake issues have been solved. Cheaper navigation system update would be nice. Adjust gear shift away from radio. Better city mileage.

2000 Honda Odyssey Minivan LX 4dr Minivan


Review

Bought Van from dealer used with 110,000 miles, bought used Japanese before with over 40000 in the past. Excellent mpg on hwy of 27 mpg. I'm big, fits me well, tons of room for passengers and stuff. CD went out, a/c went out, remote doors to not work all the time, sliding driver door will not lock automatically, transmission went out 170,000. 2 friends' Odyssey trans went out at 99,000. Rubber timing belts in Van changed at 115,000, had 2 Toyota vans, only changed oil, never any problems drove to 220,000 miles, this one at 215,000 no a/c toime to change timing belts, wonder if transmission will last still like handling, roominess, but can trust Honda, new vans seem worst.


Best Features

MPG, roominess, sits 7 plus gear, hauls 4 x 8 sheets, lots of power, excellent view,


Worst Features

Transmission are poor, new ones rated just as bad, cd player cheap, a/c cheap, remote locks fail, sliding doors need a lot of maintenance

Review

Don't even need to write a review, they are all the same! On my third transmission. First one replaced by Honda at 95,000. Now at 152,000 the car will only move in reverse. Honda do a thing! Have had issues with the doors as well. Passenger side door needs new contacts. Won't close and when the door opens, it scratches up against the doors. The path the door travels is now paint free! What a nightmare. I will never own another Honda!


Best Features

Hide-away third row. Very roomy when seats are out. That's about it!


Worst Features

Sheet metal siding make for dents everywhere! Change doors back to manual! Revamp the trannys! Better customer service!

Review

This car is a nice car we have taken it on lots of road trips and it has not broken down. The car is comfortable, roomy, and quite. I have not had to replace the transmission the only things we had to replace was the fuel line and the battery so far. The cons are that the engine does not provide enough power, leather seating is not available, and all-wheel drive is not an option but everything else is good for the time being we plan to keep it for another year because it is still reliable.


Best Features

Climate control, easy fold down rear seats, decent fuel economy, and space.


Worst Features

Engine not strong enough, leather seats not an option, and all wheel drive is not available.

Review

We bought the Odyssey new and have 197,000 on it 8 years later. I had hoped to keep the van for 4 more years (300,000 miles) but may not make it. I had ERG problems several times and was never able to get the dealer to fix it even though they identified the ERG as defective. It costs $300 each time for repairs. The sliding doors are a potential problem. Both open with a hard knock, but are still operational. I'm sure a fix will be needed in the near future. I also had a $3500 transmission rebuild in Dec. 2007. Now six months later the van is back in the shop because the transmission is slipping. A Prius may be in my immediate future!
