Bought my Odyssey new in 2001. Has served us well. No Major problems. Two recalls and two warranty items. Now have 85,000. I use it mainly to haul stuff like 4x8 sheets of plywood, framing lumber and other building materials. Also, it holds a John Deere 100 series lawn tractor. Home Depot couldn't believe it. Great on vacations for carrying all the stuff we need. Plus friends. Transmission is excellent. Need to do recall on gear lubrication and change transmission oil regularly to get longevity. Considering a 2011 now.
Fold down 3rd row seat. Ease of removing 2nd row seats. Short turning radius. Powerful engine. Nice and neat interior.
Move gear shift to dash(done). Expand trip computer capabilities(done). Improve gas mileage(done for 2011).
