2002 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I Purchased a Honda Odyssey and driving
it home from the dealer it began to
shake consideralby. Turns out the Axle
is bent on the Car. The car had 8
miles on it. Of course Honda won't
exchange the vehicle for one that is
not damaged. My new goal is to make
people aware of these types of issues.
I am screwed. Make sure you drive the
car YOU are going to buy not one "just
like it."

2002 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Had a '99 Ody, but # of improvements
for 02 tempted us to a new one. Prev.
issues were fixed (shifter, noise, pwr,
etc). We love it! Drives great-real
power. Very nimble for a van this size.
Very luxurious. Amazing room &
versatility. Interior feels solid-many
vans feel cheap. Have the EXL w/DVD-no
issues w/ the sound system. Watch
Jurrassic Park & you will believe! Lthr
seats are comfy & seem durable. Magic
seat is great. Center row very easy to
get in/out. Pwr doors are great. Best
looking van by far-looks like an
Acura. Highly recommend this van-Get a
LX w/ less goodies & you'll still have
the best deal going!


Best Features

DVD entertainment system Pickup (for a van) Amazing Room Magic Seat (though my wife wants it to be completely flat for use as a changing table) Middle row seats are easy to remove Keyless Remote is a little dippy


Worst Features

The only biggie: Front Passenger seat should be power, too Minor ergonomic beefs - nothing worth mentioning Uneven floor inside (spare tire)

2002 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The EX/L model with the DVD
entertainment system is like shooting the
kids with a tranquilizer gun. Total
silence!! We purchased 2 extra sets of
headphones for the back (4 total) and I
can listen to country music in front and
the kids can either put in a DVD or some
crappy Rap CD that I don't have to
listen to and they're happy...and so am
I!!! Whoever thought up the
ntertainment system was a genius. The
fold down rear seat gets used all the
time at the soccer fields. When it
rains, the back hatch serves as a
perfect cover. The only problem since
buying the Odyssey is that we had to
replace the climate control system.


Best Features

Entertainment System (flipdown screen, headphone system, front and back controls, tranquilizer effect), fold down back seat, large storage space, large passenger space, easy - responsive steering, powerful acceleration (especially for a van), automatic sliding doors


Worst Features

raise 12V outlet

2002 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Well worth the wait!! I drove just
about every van on the market and
decided nothing compares with the
Odyssey. No rebates, discounts or
special financing could change my mind
either. This is a great, intelligently
thought out van. It drives like a
sports car and is extremely versatile
for the family. Hauled the family and 2
dogs (1 being a Great Dane) on a 9hr.
trip with no problems. Every other van
manufacturer has alot of catching up to
do!! This is THE MINIVAN for the "NON-
MINIVAN" person!!!


Best Features

Powerful engine, fun to drive, Magic 3rd seat, roominess


Worst Features

Stereo system needs CD player as standard equipment

Review

This is our second Odyssey. It replaced
an '00. This one doesn't penalize me
when I drive it.. our other cars are a
'99 Prelude SH and '01 Acura CL.


Best Features

power, brakes, transmission


Worst Features

needs larger, lower profile tires. a bit too much understeer for my taste.
