bought it brand new in 2003 and been driving 225,000 miles over 13 years. quality at its best. Have three other cars German and Japanese and this still beats them all in terms of maintenance. Still original engine and transmission and havent spent a single penny other than oil change, tires and brakes. still runs solid and moves heavy cargo and passengers like day 1. would love to buy another honda.
I absolutely love my 2004 Honda Odyssey! I bought her in 2006 used and have only had to replace ignition switch and door lock assembly ($500 total). This van runs my 3 kids around town through rain, sleet, snow and sunshine and still runs like brand new with 121K miles on it. I will buy another when this one wears out, which my mechanic says won't happen for at least another 100k. It was well worth every penny we paid for it-has outlasted all of my others friends "knock off" (Nissan, dodge, Kia, Hyundai) minivans. It hardly has any rust either, especially great since we live in NY. Love, love, love my Honda!!!!!!
Absolutely love this van. Bought it with 15Ok Miles and it working good as ever. Only problem is that the V6 takes a lot of gas. The front seats are really great. Have a lot of leg space. The trunk has a lot of space. Great Family Van.
Bought car brand new! I'm just agreeing with what most are saying here. Any time I went in for a state inspection, was told I needed to replace a motor mount or two after 60,000 miles or so. Don't do jackrabbit starts. Transmission went at around 120,000 miles, $4,000 to replace at a Honda dealership; Drivers side passenger door, no longer auto-locks; rear vent windows haven't worked in years; several center dash lights went out; then a year after the transmission was replaced by the dealership, told the bolts were missing from the transmission???? I've owned two Hondas before this, an 88 Accord LX, Standard, (240K with really no problems and a 2001 Accord LX, with 35K traded on minivan.
It's a great people carrier! That's its purpose! Though some complained about the rough ride, I liked it! Gave me enough road feel to give me confidence. Agree the road noise was a little excessive on the highway.
You need to back up your name! The transmission reliability stinks! And you know it! Do something about it! Also the motor mounts fail! Do something about it!
