1996 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan


We've owned our Odyssey for 13 years and 237,000 miles. Only had to have minor repairs done, such as replacing the heater switch. No major problems with the engine. The automatic door locks quit working, but it still locks manually, so didn't get that fixed. Still has plenty of pep for getting onto the interstate, going up steep hills. Most comfortable vehicle we've ever owned, and there seems to be a place for everything. Back row seats fold down into floor, middle row folds forward for lots of cargo space. As easy to park and make U-turns as a mid- sized car. Good rear view for backing up. Easy to get in and out of, including back seats, with regular car doors, not sliding. Seats 7 people.

Best Features

Plenty of cargo space, easy to convert. Don't have to remove any seats. Convenient space between front seats for purse, drink cooler, etc. Ease of getting in and out (arthritis). Good view of the road in all directions. Easy to park. We like the car doors as opposed to sliding doors. Good stereo.

Worst Features

Drink holder in front is too small for 20-oz Coke. Windshield wiper leaves a streak. Headlights not quite bright enough on dim. Fine on bright.
