Over 11 Years and Still A Wise Choice From Day One

At five years and 56,000 miles we find our Odyssey hasn't aged as much as I have, thank goodness. Vehicle's outside appearance is still very good, interior shows little wear, engine still sounds and feels sound, transmission doesn't whine, gas mileage still ranges around 20 to 24 mpg (on the road), handling hasn't loosened up to any significant degree and resale value is excellent. The problems I have with this vehicle have to do with braking (although there's never been a loss of braking there's a softer pedal than I like) and when you do longer road trips across the prairies you have to be aware you're not driving a Ford, for example, with a Ford dealer and shop in almost every town. With a Honda reliability is mandatory because dealerships are generally located in cities and often cities are few and far between. So, we do like our Odyssey because it's been a great "buy" and a vehicle that lives up to its reputation. Now, in 2017, at a little over 64,000 miles the vehicle still handles well (except for the stupid brakes), rides well, looks good and I can't see why we need to replace it. I'm still impressed with the Honda resale value and that's made buying the Odyssey a wise investment. In 2020 we have a new CR-V in our garage to keep our Odyssey company. This will be the 4th new Honda and we are still so pleased with this make and the models. The Odyssey nears 80,000 miles, we've done the timing belt and other goodies according to recommendations, have new tires on it and this is still the long trip go-to vehicle. Ride is still comfortable with none of the squeaking, groaning, rattling old age noises of 10 year old vehicles. At oil changes our dealer's shop provides us with a check list and last time the wipers needed replacement. Besides tires that brings us to repair and replacement items of one tail light and three sets of wipers - in 10 years and 74,000 miles. No doubt the Odyssey is in better shape than I am. Now in 2021 the Odyssey has 78,000 miles on it, has just returned from a 1,000 mile trip with five people and all their gear - on a number of paved roads - some good and some bad - with no problems other than collecting bugs on the windshield. Still a smooth ride and the interior and exterior show the quality of the vehicle in that everything has held up well.

It's Not A Porsche - And Isn't Meant to Be

I got this to soak up some long distance travel miles to keep them off of my twin turbo Porsche Macan S while lugging kids and stuff long distance. So far it's doing exactly what I'm asking it to do, so I'm pleased. It handles like a wet sponge, but hey, it's a van. Can't fault it for doing exactly as it was designed to do. 6 Month Update!! Have put 5000 miles on the van, now at 108K, oil life is at 40%, averages a solid reliable 300 miles per tank and 20mpg. No mechanical problems at all this thing is a tank, brakes have a little flutter but I consider those consumables, not mechanical. The electronic nannies are aggressive, the slightest wheel spin, wet road, gust of wind and she lights up and all the "stop having any fun" electronic controls kick in to keep me from anything but slow and steady and straight ahead - oh well. Some water issues, both rear tail lights filled with water some seal somewhere must be bad somewhere so I drained them, and the driver A-pillar was dripping a tiny amount of water in a recent storm - odd. I've noticed a huge number of these Honda vans on the road since getting one as a second car. All conditions. Clearly mechanically these are built to last, they sold a lot of them and I bet almost all of them are still on the road. Impressive, Honda.

Quart of oil every 1,000 miles is OK?!

At 7,000-8,000 miles, the engine light came on & the car ran so rough my wife was afraid to drive it 1/2 mile to our house. After a tow to the dealer, they can't figure out where the oil is going, but replace the oil and the spark plugs (which are fouled). After several 1,000 mile checks on the oil consumption, I am told today that HONDA USA finds the disappearance of one quart of oil per 1,000 miles to be Acceptable, and there is no repair to be made. But they are researching it and will get back to me. Um, yeah, right. I had a 1987 Honda Civic that gave me over 120,000 miles before it was wrecked by another driver. Quite a letdown to know Honda quality has sunk so low today.

Got a Honda and Got a Dud

We purchased this car used at 46K miles in 2012 with after market warranty and Car Fax clean record. I'm just going to list the issues we've had with this car instead of explain all of the instances of failure because that would require more time than I have. After the first week or two we were notified a recall and had to take it back in to get it repaired. A week later the transmission began failing and had to force the dealership to replace it under warranty. The steering column has a continuous pop whether driving or turning or turning the wheel while sitting still, still have yet to get it diagnosed or fixed. Already had to have the bearings replaced on one of the back tires. One of the shocks in the back is also now leaking oil everywhere. The driver side sliding door middle bracket fell to pieces, the dealership admitted that this was a very well known issue. The auto window module went bad and made it so we could only roll down the driver side window. Multiple burned out lights. Terrible paint that falls to pieces off of the body with any contact. Another active recall, where the fuel pump overheats and can cause fires. The driver side sliding door motor is going bad and can't fully open or close the door properly even after repair. There are other issues, but I've grown tired trying to remember everything. Genuinely, this is by far the worst vehicle I have ever owned. I will NEVER purchase another Honda for the rest of my life. 30K miles that we've driven this car, mostly on highways in the country where the roads are very well maintained, and all of these things have occurred within that time frame...absolutely appalling.

Excellent for family. Decent mpg. Reliable

Bought it new. Used it for lots of long trips and daily city trips. Pros: Super reliable, power, decent mpg, good steering feel, low maintenance cost and excellent family hauler. Cons: Thin paint, eats tires (heavy car), warped rotors which cause wobble at highway speed braking. Engine mounts were shot at around 78K. City mpg could be little bit better. Aftermarket batteries last lot longer. Regular service is affordable at dealership. Wish it had a timing chain instead of belt.
