1999 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan


We bought our Oddy from an independent
dealer. We were reluctant because of
its low price, since they hold their
value so well. After 2 test drives, a
carfax report and lots of homework, we
decided to let our guard down and
purchase the van. It drives a little
heavier than other vans we tested but
the power and handling made up for
that. The original owner added a
luggage rack and a 6-disk in-dash CD
player, which made its appeal very
similar to the EX model. Front brake
pads and tires were worn so the dealer
replaced them. We also had to get new
keyfobs for the keyless entry/anti
theft system. Seems like a lot to go
through but it was worth it.

Best Features

6-disk in-dash CD player, substantial buttons, substantial door handles, fold flat rear seat, easy cruise control function, flat seats (minimizes wear that other high-thigh seats experience), easy to configure 2nd row, shoulder belt for middle third row, fold away center console

Worst Features

remove 3rd row seat clamps required when seat in use, less obtrusive/clumsy gear shift, soft arm rests door pannels, deeper cup holders, cloth seat backs, 60/40 split bench, more electronics i.e. compass, gas mileage, temperature, etc., mirror to view entire cabin interior
