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


Review

Went to the Honda Dealership to test
drive a Pilot and although a very nice
vehicle, my wife and I saw the Odyssey
and we immediately fell in love with
it. The interior and the overall look
of this van is awesome. A much more
practical and roomy vehicle than the
Pilot. My wife particularly likes the
DVD and the leather interior. Handles
like a car. Have owned Fords all of my
life but when my 2000 Windstar started
giving me problems with 37000 miles on
it we decided to go with a Honda
because of it's reputation for
reliability and resale value. Will not
own another Ford! Considered the Sienna
but it was $5000 more. Excellent
vehicle. Great Value!


Best Features

DVD Entertainment System. Auto Climate control system. Leather is awesome.


Worst Features

Outside temperature gauge. Automatic door locks. Rear sensing system.

2004 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We bought this van about a month
ago and LOVE it. We have 3 small
kids and need the additional room.
We had owned a Tahoe and there is
no comparison between the two
vehicles. The van isn't as big, but
has more room for seating. It also
drives like a car and the gas mileage
is better. We also got a decent deal.
We were able to play two
dealerships against each other and
bought the EXL with an MSRP of
$28,980 for $25,422 with no
additional fees with 3.9% for 60
months from the local dealership.
They even had the color we wanted,
Midnight Blue. It took a lot of
research and patience, but we are
happy we ended up with this van for
this price.


Best Features

Leather seating, power doors, just about everything else this van has to offer.


Worst Features

Only one.....outside temperature display and compass on the RV mirror.

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


Review

After owning for 6 months and 8k miles,
I like it more than the first time. It
is indeed quiet while cruising, the ride
is smooth on good surface but too
sensitive on bumpy road. The engine is
very smooth but 5 speed auto trand is
just adquite. During a long trip, found
the 3rd row seat is more comfortable.
2nd row seat is not compy with
vibrations. For long trip, Sienna is
definetely better choice but going
around town Odyssey is the winner.


Best Features

Smooth engine and transmission. Great handling like a car. Still best looking van among all mini vans.


Worst Features

Door buzzer is annoying. Some ticking noise under the dash board-dealer says its 2-3 hour job to fix. Michellin tire wear is unusual. Streo is very low grade. fit and finish is just an average.

Review

I have had 4 Accords prior to buying
the Odyssey. This is an amazing van.
Its safe, comfortable, fun to drive,
and has Honda's thoughtfulness in
every detail. I was a little bit
disappointed in the mileage at first,
but it has improved as the van has
broken in. I drive between 25-30k per
year and this is by far the most
comfortable vehcile I've ever owned.
Highly recommended!


Best Features

Dual power sliding doors (hands full of groceries in the frigid Minnesota winter has made this an AWESOME feature!)


Worst Features

The parking brake is a little quirky sometimes, especially when its cold out. Possibly change it to a hand brake on the floor?

Review

Been the owner of a 1990 Caravan for 13 years, and
have poured a ton of $$ into it over the years. Tried
to avoid a car payment, but this van is soooooo
worth it! We've owned a Civic, a Prelude, have an
Accord and now the Odyssey…the Honda product is
just amazing. The drive, the safety and reliability
you just can't find in many makes. I'll have this for
at least 'til the kids go off to college (15 years) and
have no doubts it will still be a great van. And
Auburn Honda is the most amazing dealership too!
Well worth the drive.


Best Features

The handling for sure, it's better than most cars! So fun to drive.The safety features, auto side doors, the huge back storage with the grocery bag hooks, it's roomy, and of course, the rear entertainment system. It rocks!


Worst Features

Gas mileage is an issue, but with the overall package it's a minor issue. It's a van and it has a very powerful V-6 engine, it'll never get 30mpg after all.
