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


Review

tranny, radio, engine mounts , sliding doors , rear vent windows , battery cables are the cause of many problems with this van in my opinion ,change at least the positive side . Now the big problem the tranny in 2004 mid year (April I believe) is when you have a chance to have your tranny last . 1 do a total drain on tranny fluid ( you tube ) while running van . 2 change tranny filter , yes you need to look up on Honda parts drawings , there is a filter ! 3 you need to install a tranny cooler a second tranny inline filter( magna filter ) all the rest you can also find on you tube . You must have some knowledge about car repairs .Also do all your yearly maintenance on time ( timing belt

Review

We just traded this 2004 EX-L in on a 2010 EX-L if that tells you anything of how we liked the car. In the more than 6 years that we owned it this was an extremely reliable vehicle. Only maintenance was due to normal wear and tear and scheduled items. An excellent buy.

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


Review

Wonderful design for the interior allows the driver to decide everything or let it all be automatic. Comfortable, too - like driving around in your favorite easy chair. So much passenger room means many on-the-road parties. All my passengers comment, unsolicited, on comfort, fun and feeling of being safe. I do wish it were more economical on the gas mileage.


Favorite Features

Automatic button controlled two side doors and automatic lock if I forget to lock it. The seat heat in the leather interior model is fabulous for cold weather up north when I visit and I've even been known to use it in Florida!


Suggested Improvements

Would like the back door to be button controlled too, because when I go to load something in the back, I have to put it down to open the door

Review

handles fine, gas milage 23 mpg with only 900 miles on van. has a slight hum or noise when in 5th gear and just lightly on throttle at 1500 rpm. also sounds like a rattle in under carriage on rough roads, other wise no complaints

Review

I love my Honda Odyssey. It is classy, it suits my expanding family...I am a grandmother. My grandkids love to ride with Granma. I feel safe...the Honda Company is keeping all the maintainance current. I raised my own kids in a Volkswagon Bug...quite a difference!! I am a Granma with class!It is also easier for my 93 year old mother to get in and out. The SUV is too high for her to climb into.


Favorite Features

Automatic opening doors, sitting up high, and automatic cooling.


Suggested Improvements

It would be an improvement to have automatic folding seats. But hey...who can have everything!!!
