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


Best Features

Other than the noise, the driving experience is excellent: responsive, tight, good visibility, all controls easy to access. Seats are comfy. It was easy for my two children, ages 4 and 5, to open doors, enter, and buckle themselves. Back of frontseat pockets were handy for storing toys and books


Worst Features

fix EGR valve! Cup holders on door for second row seats (b/c they are on the center tray, they are too far away for children to access). Cut down on road noise.

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.


Best Features

Love the interior. An abundance of cupholders! The style of this van is sharp. The power doors are wonderful. AC cranks out great. Quiet and smooth on the road. Great sound system.


Worst Features

The trays that hold four cups have had one leather piece break off, but could easily be glued back on. Really, that is about all I can say about this van. Nothing else has been a problem.

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.


Best Features

Fold down 3rd seat, ergonomics, very comfortable seating, quality of interior materials


Worst Features

Mechanical reliability

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!!


Best Features

The ride, safety features along with the cargo space, fold down rear seat flush with the floor, the automatic sliding side doors, the seating capacity and love the adjustable power driver's seat! The gas mileage has been very good for all long travels even with full loads. Great driving visibility.


Worst Features

Better sound system, would have liked to have a GPS system and a quieter interior sound proofing. The headlights could be better adjusted for night driving. Would like to have better arm rests upfront. It would be great if the second row Captain's chair would also fold down flat like the rear seat.

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.


Best Features

Not much any more.


Worst Features

Bigger gas tank only saw 260-290 miles/tank. Better brakes, Speed/Odometer calibrated properly. Stop running in first gear for ever(Im not in race). Our Van was well taken care of, better relibilty. Better original tires that don't go flat every 3 months. A Honda dealership that doesn't rip you off
