2004 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan w/Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


I bought this van as our family grew and we needed more room and wanted it to be reliable. It was a certified van with 29,000 mi on it. After purchase, I immediately became unsatisfied with the amount of road noise and interior functions malfunctioning. Issues were fixed under certified warranty. At 50,000 mi (current) started to have transmission shuddering even though maintenance schedule has been followed. After 3 trips to the dealer and a call to Honda, they are replacing the transmission under warranty. Don't know how many miles this one will last, but hopefully until I can trade it. Van depreciated horribly and will probably have to keep it another 2 years to break even on trade.

Best Features

Powerful engine, lots of space, decent gas mileage if driven lightly.

Worst Features

Transmission, steering wheel radio controls, road noise, sound system, more comfortable seats.
