2003 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan w/Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


We bought this 4 years ago when it had 67k miles on it. It now has 110k miles on it. It was a certified Honda so we had coverage until 100k mile, this replaced the motor mount for free. Motor mounts going bad is normal wear for a FWD car at 100k miles. It has leather seats that are EXTREMELY comfortable Road noise is worst than other vans. If you apply 'undercoat' to the wheel wells and buy good tires it will be silent. Bad quality tires make it worse. I have flushed the transmission fluid at 75k miles and changed it at 100k miles. No transmission problems yet. I get 26 mpg driving from Denver to Utah over 11,000 foot mountain passes with the cruise set, fully loaded Love it!

Best Features

Comfortable leather seats, button operated sliding doors, fold down 3rd row seat, seat warmers, high gas mileage, smooth suspension

Worst Features

The transmission problems are well known, but aren't a problem starting in '04. I do all the maintenance on the tranny in hopes that it lasts longer More sound deadening Ugly/plain exterior All cars have timing belts, save money and do it yourself for $100 in parts.
