Wife calls this her "Grapefruit"

Vehicle
2001 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
Review
It isn't quite a lemon, but the legendary Honda reliability has passed our van over - hence we call it a "grapefruit." We bought the van new in 2001 and it continues to be our primary family (of five) car. During warranty we had a leaking gasket and a defective fuel pump. After warranty we've had to replace the hinges for both sliding doors and the key cylinder ignition. So the car has left us stranded twice in 8 years. One of the plastic air conditioner knobs split (we glued it back together). The drivers side interior door handle's metallic covering started to peel off and was sharp enough to cut my wife's finger. It is now wrapped in duct tape.
Favorite Features
The interior is very intelligent. The ability to re-arrange seats, and completely flatten the rear-bench is great. The stereo and climate controls on the center stack are laid out really nicely.
Suggested Improvements
Reliability needs to improve. It may be that the type of driving soccer moms tend to put on vans requires an extra level of sturdiness beyond what Honda typically puts into passenger cars.
