I Call Her "Olivia" :)
By nanamcal on


1997 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan


I purchased my Odyssey in 1999 w/ 29K on her.
She now has 154K on the engine. She is like a trusted old friend. She even survived a flood in 2005 at 127K with water in the engine. I had to wait a month for the carpet to be cut for her back then. She survived! When the water was blown out of the engine by my Ace mechanic; I was told it was one tough little engine. Timing belt change; new rear shocks from all the loads she carried.
Brakes last forever on this little dynamo!. I dread the day I have to give her up. Great resale value still. Would buy another in a heartbeat!
They don't make them like her anymore!! Built in Japan to LAST! Hope to keep her for another 150K

Best Features

Stops on a dime. Dependable. Good visibility on the road. mpg 21 city, 26-28 highway. Four doors! Rides like an accord due to accord chassy. only wish I got the EX with the sunroof.
