I understand why Honda rates excellent
on its mini-vans. I recently took my
brand new '02 EX up to Chicago and its
a runner. Gas mileage was about
25mpg. Bountiful amounts of room.
Ample room in the engine compartment
when compared with other mini-vans.
Some way to manually close the door.
Right now you lift the door handle and
the doors slide slowly to close. If we
could manually close the sliding doors
quicker, that would be great. Front
wiper de-icer would also be nice.
After months on shopping for a
reasonable price, finally purchased a
2002 Odyssey EX (NEW). On the way
home, the engine light came on,
returned to the dealer the next day and
was told the transmission needed to be
replaced. After frustrating
discussions with the Dealer, eventually
got a refund and refused to purchase
from them again.
Purchased another Odyssey online from a
Dealer over 100 miles away and took
delivery within 24 hours of purchase.
LOVE this 2nd Odyssey with the
EXCEPTION of a LOUD shifting noise it
makes when you first start up the
engine. Haven't read anyone else with
this problem. Currently have a dealer
looking into this.
folding 3rd row seat.
Better stereo system, keep up with the
supply with demand to eliminate dealer
hassles. Better Quality Control before
Very, very nice vehicle! Honda really
does make better vehicles than it's
big 3 American contenders! I became
interrested in Honda vehicles after my
friend let me drive his Accord a few
times. I was so impressed that I was
determined that my next vehicle would
be a Honda. And, it just happened
that the Odyssey fit my needs very
Very easy to drive, plenty of power,
low gas mileage, the most practical
vehicle I've ever owned! I really
like the fact that the Odyssey easily
holds a full 4'x8' sheet of plywood
flat w/ all doors closed!
It would be nice to have a higher
quality stereo system, a full-size
spare tire, and perhaps all-wheel-
drive. But hey, I'm nit-picking now.
