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.

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".

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.

Pros

Lots of room

Cons

Poor quality

375

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

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

Cons

Road noise from side doors

185

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 @160K miles motor is burning 1/8 quart per tank Very powerful motor After market front breaks work much better than OEM - don't let the dealer have a shot at the front brakes - save a ton of money as well.

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

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!!!
