Honda not as reliable as I thought

Vehicle2005 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewLikes: Looks, performance, handling. Dislikes: Oil consumption: recently began burning off oil. About a pint every 2000 miles. I used castrol syntec 5w20 since new and had it serviced by dealer. Dealer reply that this oil consumption is normal. This is the first vehicle I ever owned including a Dodge caravan with 130k miles that ever burned this much oil. I am not a Honda believer any more. My hyundai elantra 2002 with 140k uses no oil between 5k synthetic oil changes. Brakes: Rotors resurfaced at 20k miles and replaced at 45k miles. The brakes are already shaking again at 50k miles. Road noise, rattles (doors and moonroof).
Best Featuresinterior layout and flexibility, classy look
Worst FeaturesFix engine oil burning, weird mechanical sounds: 1.Clunking caused by ABS or traction control after reversing and driving forward 2. Harsh downshifts when decelerating 3. brakes 4. Oil consumption 5. rattles/ hard ride/noise 6. auto sliding door motor noise (one side only)
