Worst vehicle I've owned, by far
By greghodg on


2005 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan w/Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Good looking, comfortable for six, fun to drive, it should have been a great van.

We bought this van new in 2005 after our third child was born.
Quick list of problems - vibration in steering (through multiple sets of tires and countless rebalancing), replaced starter, power steering pump, alternator.
Rear motor mount went at about 50k miles ($800 covered by honda out of warranty).
Both power doors have been repaired, and both are still flakey and frequently don't work.
But really the biggest one is that the A/C has been replaced THREE times, at almost exactly one year intervals.
First time cost me $1400, second time honda covered it, third time they split the cost.
Just awful.

Best Features

Lots of room, comfortable, nice cabin amenities.

Worst Features

There is no way this van could be improved, it's just that bad.
