Nice to drive - but poor reliability
By georgiadriver on
2001 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Purchased this to replace problem prone Sable Wagon. It was nice for 3 years but has had many problems since, new transmission (replaced by factory @ 44K thanks), door problems, rattles under hood, electrical problems, poor mileage ~ 13-15 overall except on long trips where its > 20. All service has been through the dealership. Overall we like the van - but too many little problems. The power doors hang up now - causing a buzzer to go off. We're told $500+/- to replace a motor. This isn't something I expect after 6 years and 90K miles from Honda.
3rd row seats, driving comfort, power on the road.
Power doors - eleminate them or make them reliable, transmission problems, mileage.
