1998 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan


We bought this car 8 years ago when we found out we were having twins.
The boys came home from the hospital in the van.
Now they are carted around to school, soccer practice, piano lessons.
The size for us family of 4 is perfect.
The gas mileage is pretty good for a van.
We average around 25 mpg, up to 30mpg on long road trips.
We wish there were similar sized newer models but the Mazda5 is a bit cramped.
All other vans are huge and gas-guzzling.
We are keeping this one until they bring over the JDM Odyssey or Honda Stream. One thing to remember is to replace the oil cooler o-ring.
Also Honda ATF every 15K would ward off transmission issues.

Best Features

Perfect size for family of 4. Holds a ton of stuff. We have carried 4 kayaks on top, with 4 bikes on a trailer hitch. Pre-wired for towing: we tow a small sailboat with ours.
