Workhorse, But Back to Toyota for Me
By Prof Utonium on


2000 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan


Bought new. Had most bang for buck when it came out. Handles well--more like car than van/truck. Had lots of innovative features. It's probably improved, but always had Toyotas before--going back too (this week). It's the family van (3 girls); we use it for everything everyday, even pulling a trailer. However, seats uncomfortable, stereo marginal, power doors stink. Has problems seen on forums: Transmission replaced (recall fix). Power doors constantly failing (3 times since warranty ran out at $200+ a pop, 7 times total). Dash light dimmer burned out (recall fix). Speedometer failed. Loud, whining rear wiper but still works (we just don't use it). Some other dash lights out.

Best Features

Drive/handling. Removable seats. Capacity. Visibility (no blind spots). Towing capacity.

Worst Features

Better doors, transmission, and radio. More comfortable seats. Better accreditation and oversight of Honda Service Centers. I live in the DC metro area. Lots of people; lots of centers and they are ALL rated poorly (and I agree).
