After 130k miles
By Adam on


2002 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Purchased new 11/2001. At the tranny recall they said it was ok and put additive in the fluid. All maintenance has been done on time including the $1750 timing belt / spark plugs at 100k miles. The transmission has always been funky, sometimes slips to 1st and you have to stay off the gas and slow down to get it going again. While the tranny is junk, it still works and it's the original one. No other problems whatsoever. F/R break pads replaced only once, tires replaced only once and are probably good for another 20k. I find that when the trans gets more finicky, if I run it hard (floor it 0 to 60mph+), it then works without major issue for another couple weeks.

Best Features

Room - 145cu ft. or something with 2nd row seats removed.

Worst Features

Transmission. Also, the car has a really noisy ride. Despite my relative good luck, I will never buy another Honda anything.
