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. So far, the 1998 is proving to be just as reliable as the 1997. Even the Sun roof works on the 1998! Really drives like a car, more than any Van that I have driven. Good investment!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: 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.

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

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.

Pros: Lots of room.  Nice styling in and out.

Cons: Rattles from the sliding doors.  Gas mileage.

Tons of reliability issues with this car. The quality control at Honda has gone down the drain. Update your engines and make them more reliable and figure out how to make a transmission that works. ... Read More

I love all of the options and the style. I just think it’s falling behind with leading competitors offering AWD and hybrid. Read More
