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


Review

We bought the Odyssey used with only 13k miles. Now it has about 38k miles and it has been highly reliable and very comfortable. Very good gas mileage for a V6 van. (Glad we did not buy an SUV.) The Odyssey has more room and easily handles whatever winter weather we get in PA. Rear storage is a "well" that the third seat folds into. The V6 is powerful and transmission smooth. The traction control worked perfectly when needed on an icy hill.


Best Features

The leather seats are excellent. After an 8 hour vacation drive you appreciate the firm padding. Ton of room for sporting weekends and vacations. There are hooks in the trunk that hold the plastic grocery bags!


Worst Features

Side slider doors are powered, rear door could be also.

Review

The Odyssey was a wonderful touring van when I traveled over 8500 miles during the first summer I had it. The gas mileage was good on the trip and it performed perfectly. I've always felt very secure on the highway while passing trucks and in inclement weather. My only complaint is with one of the sliding doors. In Florida, it wouldn't open and on a trip to Kentucky, it failed to open. It's frightening especially if there was an accident. I definitely feel I got a lemon on the door. This is the only problem I've had with the van and when it happens, it is very annoying.


Best Features

I enjoy the fact that I can move most anything in the spacious cargo area. This is my answer to having a vehicle and a truck.I've hauled a sofa and several pieces of furniture.I like that it is closer to the ground since I am short & I don't have to bend excessively to remove suitcases. I am older.


Worst Features

The back door is very heavy to open and close, the gear shift is large and bulky, a compass would be nice, a magic seat which is easier to convert.

Review

I bought the van last year as a certified used with under 36K miles. I bought the extended bumper to bumper warranty. There have been several small issues with the car. The brakes made some noise and there was a squeak coming from the back. I had to bring the car in twice to get the issues fixed (road with the head of service the 2nd go round), but overall I'm very satisfied with this car. I did just have to put a new battery in it, but the car is over 4 years old. It rides great and I find it extremely comfortable on long trips (what others call stiff, I think is support). I've bought nothing but Honda/Acura over the last 14 years and this purchase will strengthen my loyalty.


Best Features

Fold down rear seats, cargo space, auto sliding doors.


Worst Features

Not a big fan of the shift lever on the steering column. It blocks some dash buttons while in drive, but this was corrected on the subsequent models.
