Vehicle2002 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewWe have had our Odyssey 5 years next month and covered over 45,000 trouble free miles. The only issues we've had is one of the tailgate struts failed (I replaced it myself costing $30) and we're on our 3rd set of tires (they only seem to last 20k or so). Other than that, no problems. We've had the recall on the tranny done and (knock on wood) no issues with the transmission so far. We have been very pleased with the van. It's been great as a school bus (it's primary role) and great for family vacations. We have no problem loading up the van with kids, dogs and luggage and then plowing up mountain roads at 80+ mph with both AC units going. We average 18 mpg around town and 21 on trips.
Best FeaturesReliability. Versatility. Value. Storage capacity. Economy (compare it to a large SUV or a competitor minivan with the same storage capacity). Relaxed highway cruising in comfort. Climate control. Front and rear AC and heat. Wireless DVD system. Rear seat space. Fold flat rear seat. Great size.
Worst FeaturesFront center storage tray is a poor design, would prefer a storage bin. Heavy on tires (especially front so rotate often).
