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


We bought one of the last of these built prior to model styling change. Towards the end Honda offered DVD with cloth seating (EX RES); before, DVD was only available with leather. The Odyssey was one of the few models which would allow us to fit four car seats (4 kids under 4 yrs.) while enabling access for an adult to buckle 3rd row passengers without removing 2nd row car seats and occupants. We've taken to turning off the interior light with the dash master switch because we've run the battery down several times when we didn't know one of the kids had switched on their overhead light. Other than the transmission lubrication recall, we've gone 22K miles with no repairs, just regular maint.

Best Features

Ability to accommodate four child car seats with access to third row seat. Double stroller fits in cargo well. Great engine power on 86 octane fuel. Sharp styling compared to other minivans. Zero warranty claims in three years.

Worst Features

Needs manual transmission option for those of us who swore never to own a vehicle with automatic. A failsafe off feature for interior lights is needed to prevent battery discharge when kids switch on overhead lights and parents forget to turn off master light switch.
