Great mileage, just returned from a 3200 mile trip. With 2 persons and some luggage driving about 78 MPH the gas MPG was 24.2. On the return leg driving at 70 MPH the average was 27.6 MPG. The van has 157,300 miles.
Our Oasis has provided eight years and 150K+ miles of dependable service. It has been a wonderful vehicle for our family; we have three kids. The Oasis gets much better than average fuel economy for a minivan and has Honda dependability and build quality. I love the fact it has four regular doors and is very easy to drive. One of the engine main seals busted and tires seem to wear quicker than normal even with proper rotation and balancing. Also have had the SRS light on now for two years and have not had diagnosed. My wife was begging for a minivan and I'm glad we chose the Oasis. The sunroof and "flipping" third row seat added some cool factor to a vehicle segment that is not cool.
The very functional third row seat was a segment leader back in '96, and still impresses today. Also, the ease of entry to the third row. The kids simply are able to walk between the second row captain chairs to gain access, very easy.
The four cylinder engine could have been a little quieter and the laminate on the alloy wheels is peeling off. Otherwise, a wonderful vehicle which sadly has been replaced by a "traditional minivan":(
We bought this new at better price than the Honda brother due to the name. Izusu gave few more features and better warranty and price. This car has been solid, reliable and convenient. The few problems we had were front allignment, cracked exhaust bracket and a persistent SRS light. Was able to reset the light but came right back on. Will need to take it to dealer for diagnosis, hopefully it's not the module, I hear it's very expensive. Radiator was replaced at 100K miles. Currently 120K miles and still going strong.
Great interior design, captain seats in middle row, fold down seats 3rd row, rear a/c, 4 doors.
