The 1997 Honda Odyssey is the same vehicle as the previous year - no changes.   With a five-door design that includes four passenger swing-out doors, like a car, it really is designed more like a tall station wagon.  Most owners reviewed prefer this design to other vans with sliding doors.  The 1997 Odyssey has a 140-hp, 2.2-liter engine.

The overall rating from owner reviewers is 9.1 / 10.0.  Owners really enjoy the looks and drivability of the Odyssey minivan.  Most drivers have well over 150,000 miles on their vehicles and expect that by staying with the regular maintenance schedule, this minivan will run forever.  This vehicle drives more like a regular car, and has no recognizable blind spots for the driver.  It has great gas mileage and, with the back seat folded down, terrific cargo space.

There were hardly any owner reviews that pointed out shortcomings for the 1997 Honda Odyssey.  The most significant problem is a lack of power from the 2.2-liter engine.  Other complaints included a not-so high tech radio and it is very noisy on the highway.
