Honda Odyssey 2003 -- As Much Fun As A Minivan Can Possibly Offer by Kin

2003 Honda Odyssey

The 2003 Honda Odyssey is the same minivan design as it has been for years.  For the most part, the option of a navigation system or an entertainment system is all that is new.  The V-6, 3.5-liter engine has more powerful with 240-hp.  It has quicker acceleration, though may be sluggish going uphill.  All 2003 Odyssey models have electronic traction control via ABS with their (EBD) Electronic Braking Distribution system that calculates weight distribution inside the vehicle, and will adjust braking action during hard stops.  

Drivers really enjoy the looks of the Odyssey minivan with the sleek, attractive design.  The fact that the 4-wheel independent suspension (struts in front with stabilizer bar and coil springs with wishbone rear suspension and coil springs) makes driving smoother, also appeals to many user reviewers.  Most drivers expect that by staying with the regular maintenance schedule, this minivan will run dependably for a very long time.  The most consistent problem over the years has been the transmission, even with the 5-speed.  It has excellent fuel efficiency, low emissions, and with the back seat folded down, tremendous cargo space.

Owner reviews are pretty high for the 2003 Honda Odyssey.  Now with standard side airbags, this vehicle has been awarded 5-stars in all crash test results.  This minivan comfortably seats seven people - with headrests, and is probably the best bargain on the market.
