We purchased our vehicle used with approximately 40k miles on the van. We have had to replace the transmission three times. I was always led to believe that Honda made quality vehicles I have been extremely disappointed. I have a 1995 Ford Explorer that has not given me a quarter of the problems the Honda Odyssey has and the Explorer has over 240k miles on it. The Odyssey is fun to drive however the I have been less than impressed with the required maintenance needed on the vehicle. I would strongly suggest someone buying this vehicle used request an extended warranty because you may need it.
Fun to drive
Correct transmission problems and focus on maintenance issues. In addition, there appears to be a problem with the electrical system because if the the radio or lights are left on for a short time and if the van is not running the van will not start. Poor fuel economy
