2000 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan


Review

We bought our Odyssey in August of 2000, about 6 months after we bought it the sliding doors started to jam and on several occasions would not open. To this day December 1 2004 they still occasionally jam but after bringing it to Honda in '01 it is a lot less frequent. That is the only problem I have had with this van. Other than that everything is excellent.


Best Features

Folding rear-seats, spacious trunk, good gas mileage, excellent build (only a few scratches after getting into an accident) and good handling and traction.


Worst Features

Sliding doors, although after driving in a friend's re-designed for '05 Odyssey I see that problem has been greatly improved, as well as in the earlier EX models.

Review

Problems from the getgo. Any ride is a noisy ride with all the exterior road noise. We bought it used at 42K, had the transmission replaced at 44K and now are having more transmission issues at 70K. Doors have had constant buzz for 10K miles. Dealer claimed no problems until and now and we have to replace both latches and sensors. Door flew open on city street-- luckily child secure in car seat. Any small interior light left on drains battery and there isn't a way to ensure all lights are off in a well lit garage-- our fix is to tape the light switch to the off position. Others love their Hondas so maybe we got a bad year but The Siennas do look great in 2005.


Best Features

magic fold down seat, concept of sliding doors, cup holders, cargo room


Worst Features

Replace faulty transmissions with proven ones, give customers a break on what I deem are lemon sliding doors, reduce road noise.

Review

After 5 years and 71,000 miles I've few
complaints. Other than the wheels, it looks, runs
and handles like it did day one. No shakes, no
rattles, no squeaks. Maybe people with problems
just have bad karma.

Only real complaint is with the finish on the alloy
wheels, which has not held up. Moisture go in
under clear coat and severe peeling on two wheels.

Transmission has been solid, and other than rear
brake squeal (when wet) that ended after I cleaned
out the accumulated brake dust out of the drums,
brakes were flawless. Front went 70K miles without
service.

Once I replaced the OEM Michelins with Bridgestone
Turanzas, the road noise was significantly reduced.




Best Features

Cargo capacity, seating flexibility (the folding third row, seat was the deal closer), handling, reliability


Worst Features

Reduce road noise. More durable finish on alloy wheels.
