2001 Honda Odyssey Minivan LX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We bought the 2001 Honda Odyssey new. It has been a good car for the most part. The trans was rebuild at 180,000. I had the main water hose blow a few months ago driving home on 95 North between Washington and Baltimore. My main problem has been the "check engine" light which came on at about 70,000 miles. I took it to the dealer and they had not a clue. They did clean the engine, but the light continued to go on and off. I have 262,000 miles on the car. I'm in the process of replacing it, but I do not think I'll buy another Honda...

Review

Bought this vehicle new in 2001 and it now has 98,500 miles. Has been in for service only once since new for uneven idling and turned out to be a loose connector. No transmission problems as other have stated, I even tow. Side doors do stick, but all you need to do is spray the seals with Teflon spray.


Best Features

Reliable. Engine is powerful and very smooth running. Rear seat folding into floor.


Worst Features

Side door sticking. Improve front brakes they only last 22k or so.

Review

Bought it because it was a Honda. At least they covered the transmission the first time it went out at 70,000 miles even though it was properly maintained, better than GM or Ford would do! But, between the sticky rear door, front brakes every 20K and timing belt (why have one not a chain) the money spent is like a Chrysler. Higher resale was a joke because if I had bought a Chrysler for 3,000 cheaper I could have taken advantage of the Cash for clunkers and ended up ahead.


Best Features

Cargo volume with the rear well for the folding seat


Worst Features

Make a transmission that is servicable with a replaceable filter and a timing chain to reduce maintenance cost

Review

We have owned this van for 2 years, bought it with 113000 miles and have already spent 1800 on it. Now the transmission and catalytic converter are going out. I am so angry at Honda for keeping this van on the road.


Best Features

nothing


Worst Features

The transmission should be replaced and warranty for LIFE in this year van.

Review

Get 13mpg in city driving. Transmission went out at 90k. A good car, but the gas mileage is killing me.
