2003 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
This model year has several major limitations that you will consistently read about online. The transmission had a recall early after purchase and recently finally bit the dust completely. It's always had trouble changing gears, slipping and revving. All of the electric windows have broken and are outrageously expensive to repair. The engine block mounts have been repaired...also incredibly expensive and the brakes are in continuous need of replacement. Each maintenance appointment brings new issues.
I have enjoyed the space and individual seats for each family member. The cargo capacity is great, although the seats are very heavy and cumbersome. This Honda has a lot of cup holders.
If the transmission is a lemon then the entire item should be recalled.
