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

Review

The 2002 Honda Odyssey is an ideal family car and ours has managed to ferry us on many memorable trips. When it's not undergoing repair, we're happy with almost every aspect of the van. However, almost alone among Hondas, this particular model has had persistent problems with its automatic transmission. For us, the problem has recurred with EACH transmission installed to replace the original equipment. The initial transmission was the subject of a national recall (Honda Service Bulletin 04-021). We have also replaced the original tranny THREE times. No kidding!! We're very disappointed.

Best Features

In vehicle entertainment, seating and general comfort is excellent, though superseded by newer models. Very comfortable for long trips w/ a family of 4.

Worst Features

Transmissions are replaced with remanufactured products upon failure. Cost of a remanufactured tranny is very, very substantial. I doubt the reliability of these units, now given our three failures. Certainly, they're not up to Honda's usual advertised standards.
