War wagon just keeps going!
By Eszti on


1997 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan


I bought my '97 Oddy in 2000 with 27,000 miles on it. Now the odometer is at 242,000, and it just keeps going! I haven't done anything but brake work! There is now a little rust around the rear wheel well, front passenger door bottom, and under the rear bumper guard. Also the steering is getting a little loose, but heck! I love this car, and would buy another in a heart beat! There are still plenty of them out there, and their price is still way up there for a really old car. Honda made a huge mistake when they "upgraded" to the new Oddy. Nowhere near as good as the old one. I understand the Honda Stream, available in Japan and maybe Europe, is very similar. Why can't we get that here?

Best Features

Smallish car-like design, 4 doors, not a minivan. 25 mpg average. As roomy as many much larger cars, with a very usable third row seat that disappears into the floor. Excellent quality and value.

Worst Features

A tachometer would be nice to have.
