Great family van except tranny

1999 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan


We bought the van with 89k, I'm guessing that it already had a fresh tranny (looking back now). All and all I have to be fair in saying that it has served us very well. For 3 years hardly any maintenance just typical little things (fluid levels, tires, ect). I know my way around a car and it's a good van. The biggest problem with our van was the side doors being intermittent and then tranny acting wierd. Flushed it, no help. 3 yrs 10mths later, tranny has pasted on. It is a well known problem 99-01 tranny failures. With only one type of tranny to be replaced with at $3300 (w/o labor) each time. About every 3 yrs or less it will need to be replaced. And this is typical with all 99-01. Check Internet and see.

Best Features

I liked almost everything about this van but I will not spend over $3300 every 3 yrs.

Worst Features

How many ways can I say transmission, xmsn, tranny, or engine to wheel go-go thingy... I think you get it...
