The vehicle is one of the best driving vans I have owned. The van has been reliable (other than rear vent window motors) for 85,000 mi. until my transmission had to be replaced. I previously serviced my transmission at the dealer ship with fluid changes. I was lucky to have purchased an extended 5 yr/100,000mi warranty. The early 2004 model year had a recall for this same problem in which my car didn't fall under. I feel Honda should compensate those out of warranty because this problem goes beyond the recall time period.
The power and response of the 3.5 engine is impressive. The folding rear seat gives plenty of storage room. Van requires regular fuel.
Transmission issue needs to be addressed, stock head light bulb brightness and fuel door release location.
