Hoping for 10 good years

2000 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan
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.
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.
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.
