2003 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

The 2003 purchased brand new along with a service plan for 3 years. Rides great good for long trips with the family. Transmission had a recall service done to it back in 2003 for slipping gears 2nd and 3rd. All fine till it hit 92,000 transmission totally failed and had to split the cost with Honda for a $4,000 transmission. I will not buy another Honda for this reason. Nissan Altima looks good to me.

Favorite Features

Ride is rock solid, interior layout is very configurable can take the 2 center seats out for cargo or just keep one in so it is easy to jump into and out of the back seat. Electrical outlet in the back for a cooler to plug in or small fridge.

Suggested Improvements

Seems the transmission itself ought to be recalled since there are so many cases of the same thing happening to other Honda Odyssey owners. 90,000 transmission failure Honda should be ashamed of itself for allowing this to continue. Plastic parts cheap and break easy on the interior.
