1996 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan


After 3 years of ownership this van has 145,000 and still runs great. First, the negatives, most of which we were aware of before we bought it: limited cargo room and wimpy 4-cyl engine. But those negatives make way for the positives: small maneuverable van that gets 22c/26h mpg...very nice stying that we get comments on all the time. Also, this van is very well made and has needed minimal maintenance. In addition to the usual happy comments I'll add that the EX model has a wonderful stereo system. Get a $80 roof rack from JC Whitney and it'll take care of your cargo problems. Other issues : oil leak; door locks have a mind of their own; ABS light issues...but overall it's a solid van.

Best Features

Excellent quality, paint, reliability, MPG, seat options, good looking, maneuverable, stereo.

Worst Features

Duh? More power, thought that would mean less MPG...I'll take the MPG. Bigger, though that would mean it drives like a boat. Overall, if you can handle these 2 common suggestions, you get good features in return. It's a trade-off that we've been able to live with happily.
