2000 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan


Review

We bought our Odyssey with 61K on it and I am very happy with it. It gets great gas mileage, Honda stands behind their work and it's a great ride, especially on highway trips. Did have a problem with the EGR valve at 81K, had it fixed and am appealing to American Honda to reimburse me as they'd extended the EGR warranty to 80K! My goal is to keep it for years to come, I'm hoping to put another 125K on the vehicle. It's my vehicle of choice anytime I go out driving. Only minor glitch is sometimes the automatic sliding doors freeze up, but that's usually due to human error! Bought new tires, have replaced front headlight bulbs and other routine maintenance, that's it!


Best Features

Automatic sliding doors; great gas mileage; smooth ride; climate control; interior comfort; fold-down third row seats; interior cargo space when seats are down; reliabilty; and exterior styling.


Worst Features

Bass/fade & tenor/balance controls hard to get to, gear shift lever gets in the way; a little tight in front passenger seat for some tall adults.

Review

Bought brand new in Jan 2000, was very pleased with vehicle until first major service, had 30000k, that's when the problems began, (rear brakes) after this deglazing of the drums the problem began and stayed with them until 110000k loud vibration noises when braking from 110km, thats probable why 2001 got all 4 discs, sliding doors already replace motor and latching mechanism every two years, now noticing trans, clunking noise especially when backing out of driveway. Got to call Honda Canada to ask about transmission recall. Hopefully the 2005 and newer don't have to many bugs. Hope this helps

Climate control, and sliding doors

2000 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan


Review

The driving dynamics and utility of this van are outstanding. Better cargo, passenger room than a large SUV with fuel economy of a car. We currently have 90K miles on the van with no costly problems. Small irritations have been numerous: Squeeking rear brakes under light braking. Sliding door sticking problems, check engine light on for bad EGR valve under warranty, if tires are cheap and/or cannot be balanced perfectly you will get vibration at freeway speeds. Overall I'm happy with our van and expect to keep it for 10 years and 200K. I'm a bit concerned with all the transmission failures, but even if I have to replace it once it will still be cheaper than buying new.


Best Features

Fold in floor rear seat, great handling and power for a minivan.


Worst Features

Better paint, stronger sheet metal, stronger rear springs. Better stereo system.

Review

Bought from the original owners at 103,000 miles and we now have 116,000. The previous owners said the transmission was replaced at 86,000 miles (not normal for Honda, I have an '89 Integra with 197,000 miles on the original engine & trans). The driver's side sliding door doesn't latch itself all the way half the time so we have to push it closed all the way manually. Also there is alot of road noise. Otherwise, this is an amazingly nice, fun to drive minivan. I grew up with a VW Bus, minivans have sure come a long way. This van isn't perfect but it's by far the best for its time out there.


Best Features

Automatic climate control, typical great Honda quality, engine, and transmission (but hope the trans lasts), tons of room, comfortable, and best of all it drives more like a car than you can believe for its size


Worst Features

This minivan isn't quite up to Honda's standards of reliability, but obviously they're working on it and it's still the best there is. Honda, aware of the trans problems, raised the warranty on all transmissions for this model to 100,000 miles. Suggested improvements?...see the 2005 model.
