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


This van has been a terrible disappointment for us. There are so many small problems and a number of really big ones. The transmission is simply junk and Honda cannot fix it. Their rebuilt transmissions are no better. Parts are extremely expensive, more than my BMW. I had a 1992 Prelude which was great but apparently Honda has gone the way of Ford in terms of reliability. Time to try one of the Korean makers.

Best Features

3rd row seat drop down into hole. Can fit sheet goods in back, but watch the seat hooks on the side.

Worst Features

A transmission that lasts, seats are uncomfortable, sliding doors break, too many small problems to mention, poorly engineered and quality control is lacking.
