2004 Honda Odyssey Minivan EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Bought it used in 2007. Steering wheel controls have started randomly switching themselves, radio went a few months ago, three separate parts of the AC system have also gone, rear wiper stopped working, passenger sliding door auto lock stopped working. Other than that, there have been no problems with the transmission or engine.


Best Features

Power, handling (for a minivan), engine quality. Interior finish quality inside the 2004 is waaaay better than the 2008-2012 which is all cheap poorly fitting hard plastic.


Worst Features

Dampen road noise, fix the electrical problems. Better quality control.

2004 Honda Odyssey Minivan EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Sold at 80K miles. I expected to keep the car for at least 10 years. Rear power windows went in 2008. The transmission has slipped for 10k miles and I do not trust it. Much worse recently. Power door locks are failing and the radio controls on the steering wheel and radio were not failing. I have had 3 other Hondas. 1986 Accord went 186K. 2000 Accord replaced transmission at 80K in November. The 2005 Accord is still going strong with 35K miles. I did not realize how noisy they were until I purchased the 2011 Highlander.


Best Features

Good seating for tall people. Nice wide wheel base. Huge interior. Will miss that.


Worst Features

Go back to the old reliability. Improve power windows, transmission, and radio controls.

2004 Honda Odyssey Minivan EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I bought this car 6 years ago and its doing pretty well. The only problem we had was that the audio controls on the steering wheel stopped working. Overall a nice minivan with bunch of options.


Best Features

Power sliding doors, Climate control, Folding of 3rd row seats, pick up.


Worst Features

Could make it a little more roomy, and reduce the cabin noise.

2004 Honda Odyssey Minivan EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This has been the best vehicle for reliability, safety, & comfort I've ever owned. Unfortunately yesterday my husband was hit in the front end, which totaled out the car [when a wheel, not just a tire, is ripped off plus the front end is hit so hard it pushes it back 6", that car is a goner]. I plan to get another Odyssey because it's such a great vehicle, even if I do hate the shift position of the gear knob.


Best Features

fold-in back row of seats, feel of safety while driving, tri-level heat & a/c, general over-all safety of vehicle [my husband has had 3 wrecks in it; I've had 1]


Worst Features

automatic door locks when you get to 20mph; all back-rows of seats fold-in; put the shift knob back on the steering column

Review

Bought the Odyssey while stationed overseas and brought it home with high hopes and initial satisfaction. While cavernous, easy to drive, powerful and full of many great features such as power doors and dual air, reliability is becoming a concern as it reaches 80K miles. Paint has peeled twice and dealers have not been receptive to repairing the damage in our area. Left sliding door continuously needs grease to quiet the chatter. Oil changes are a bear. A/C filter changes, too. CD player died. Clock's light went dark. CD and clock are very expensive to replace. Overall, a disappointment; can't recommend it any longer and won't be buying another Honda :( This is a "Monday" car, for sure.


Best Features

Power doors, easy to convert second and third row seating, dual air, powerful engine/transmission set up, easy handling.


Worst Features

Power tail gate; Pull out rear seat with same floor configuration; memory power driver's seat; power passenger seat. Make oil filter and air conditioning "inside" filter changes more consumer friendly.
