1998 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan


Super van, very reliable, only two parts broke over 11 years of constant use: starter motor and a cast iron header pipe cracked, both rare. Our van has 322,000kms, or over 193,000miles, with super Honda v-tec 2.3 liter engine: good low end torque for it's size, and great power up top if you need it (150 horse). It's much lighter than other vans so it outperforms even 3.0 liter Nissan's and other vans. I get over 30 miles per gallon highway, but run hard tires and 0W-30 amsoil. With a tranny cooler I've towed all across North America. It has lots of life left, it handles very nicely for a van too, much better than any other I've ever driven. Like a car. Great small van, ahead of its time.

Best Features

The styling for a minivan is very classy, and tight. The versatile seats that fold into the floor or out of the way are very handy. Very reliable, great gas mileage: when gas is 5 bucks a gallon these vans will be worth lots and you won't be able to give away your SUV.

Worst Features

A better quality audio system perhaps, and a center console or net. Not much to complain about in general.
