Lots of room

Cons

Poor quality

Only Slightly Better Than A Dodge Minivan — Lots of room in this large minivan (is that an oxymoron), but the seats are like sitting on plywood, so comfortable is not the way I would describe this vehicle. Poor build quality - every rock chip on the leading edges of the hood rusted, almost immediately (dealer said this is normal, but even on my wifes 10 year old Taurus with TONS of rock chips there isn't any rust) Door handles on the sliding side doors would stick - then pull right off! Brakes needed to be done by 20,000 km. Honda might have a pretty good reputation for quality, but you couldn't prove it by this van.

Pros

Carries 7 people with relative comfort, plus their stuff, all at 24 mpg.

Cons

Not a vehicle suitable for racing, fun, autocross... anything that might raise your blood pressure a few notches.

Nothing More Versatile Than A Minivan. — We love our van... it does everything except excite you when driving... otherwise, it's fantastic.

Pros

Makes long trips fantastic - Great visibility  - best of all cars ever owned

Cons

Road noise from side doors

The Best Road Tripping Car There Is — Mileage is 25 highway @ 63 mph 28 tops @ 48-50 mph Best horse to weight ratio of all the Odyssey's @162K miles motor has been rebuilt with new pistons and retained the connecting rods main shaft and main bearings - looked great. New valves and seats for the heads. Polished the intake air runners and exhaust manifolds. Crank was polished as well by a machine shop. $1,000 for the machine shop bill - Boring, heads pressure tested, polishing crank, valves and seats installed. Total cost of engine rebuild at 2,500. All new bolts are on the motor. Trans rebuilt with Sonnax TC valve and external inline ATF cooler and external filter. The only way this should have left the factory. Very powerful motor After market front brakes, rotors, work much better than OEM - don't let the dealer have a shot at the front brakes - save a ton of money as well.

Pros

Can beat a mustang off the line

Cons

You'd be lucky to get 20 mpg out of this thing

2001 Honda Odyssey Ex — If god had to drive a minivan, this would be it. The beastly 3.5L V-6 generates about 280 Hp and can smoke it's tires given the right conditions. This Lambo-van (vanborghini?) even includes a button to disable traction control! Ride quality is excellent even in the worst conditions and when it comes to high speed stability, it squats low to the ground as the satanically posessed engine pulls you to the edge of insanity. This is not a minivan. It is "sports car with increased seating capacity".

Great Vehicle — Lots of Space and Cargo at the same time, great fuel consumption, quality is amazing. Braking is exceptional, appearance was great bought new rims and tires looks hotter, maintenance is right (not too high), just right for the car. It does drive great on the highway.

Good And Reliable — I have owned this van for 4 years. My major issue is w/ the squeaky brakes (has rear drum brakes). I have changed the brakes several times (even with the pads still good) but I cant get rid of the squeak. It also had an issue w/ the passenger power sliding door and it was an expensive fix. The van overall has been reliable and I am not concerned when driving on long road trips with my family. It is a nice ride and had many of the extras my Sienna doesn't have.

Best Family Car — if you maintain the honda with regular oil change and replacing normal wear and tear items like brakes/tires etc.. it will run million miles.. very nice engine and mileage for a mini van 17 on the city and 21 on the highway

Too Big For Me Right Now. — I like the car and hate to sell it but have to for the need free my garage for my new MDX; otherwise, I would like to keep it forever. It has only 83K milage and is always maintained on time.

Barboza31106 Honda Oydssey — I love the fact that this van is such a reliable vehicle. It is spacious, I could fit a triplet stroller, groceries, and my four children with car seats. On long trips it kept my children busy with it's Movie player. I love this van!!!
