The van is great because it converts from a Cargo Van to a passenger van very easily.  Additionally, it is good on gas and not as big as the Odyssey’s that were produced later, which makes it easier to park and drive.


It made it to 173,000 miles and the transmission died.  Someone bought it, replaced the transmission and it is still going strong!


Reliable And Fun — Van always handled well, got good mileage and was generally very reliable. I am getting a 1998 and will see if that lasts as long. Really drives like a car, more than any Van that I have driven. Good investment!

Lots of room.  Nice styling in and out.


Rattles from the sliding doors.  Gas mileage.


This Van Should Be Considered A Bus! — This thing is a boat on wheels. It has tons of room for all shapes and sizes. It has several configurations for seating and storage. Inside and out this van has what others want. (This is evident by the certain styling cues being integrated into other manufacturer vans.) The rear seating is complimented by a entertainment system that offers everything from a dvd player to plugs for the latest video game consoles.
