I actually like a minivan
By sssannndmannn on
2000 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan
Bought from the original owners at 103,000 miles and we now have 116,000. The previous owners said the transmission was replaced at 86,000 miles (not normal for Honda, I have an '89 Integra with 197,000 miles on the original engine & trans). The driver's side sliding door doesn't latch itself all the way half the time so we have to push it closed all the way manually. Also there is alot of road noise. Otherwise, this is an amazingly nice, fun to drive minivan. I grew up with a VW Bus, minivans have sure come a long way. This van isn't perfect but it's by far the best for its time out there.
Automatic climate control, typical great Honda quality, engine, and transmission (but hope the trans lasts), tons of room, comfortable, and best of all it drives more like a car than you can believe for its size
This minivan isn't quite up to Honda's standards of reliability, but obviously they're working on it and it's still the best there is. Honda, aware of the trans problems, raised the warranty on all transmissions for this model to 100,000 miles. Suggested improvements?...see the 2005 model.
