2001 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)


We bought this van new in Aug of 2001.
Within the first 6 months we began experiencing problems with it.
The light behind the dash board went out, the automatic doors began sticking, and the transmission began slipping.
This van is at the shop every 6 months for some type of issue.
I have taken it to the dealership for the transmission at least five different times.
Now at 117,400 miles, the transmission goes out and Honda will bck up their product at all.
There has been a class action lawsuit because the transmissions are faulty.
I expected more from a Honda than constant small problems and a broken transmission. i have never experienced these problems with my Toyotas.

Best Features

Folding rear seat, table in between front seats, storage space in rear behing 3rd seat.

Worst Features

Better overall quality, a heavy duty transmission that is built to last 200,000 miles. I will never buy Honda again.
