I bought this van expecting my usual honda experience, lots of miles, low maintenance needs..the upfront expense was always worth it in the end because I didn't lose time with my vehicle in the shop. We have had to replace the transmission (yes, they covered it, but I was still in a rental for almost a week). The check engine light is on more than off to the point even the dealers in two states said ignore it unless something else is going wrong. The slider doors have had multiple problems, everything from replacing the door sensors to the door "deprogramming" itself. The door will close on you hard before it catches that there's something in the way, always a worry with toddlers.
We do love the room and when it's running well, the van is great. The warranty period was great, would definitely recommend buying the extended warranty (ours more than paid for itself). When they are working, the slider doors are convenient.
The body is great, but the engine needs major work.
