1998 Honda Odyssey Overview

The 1998 Honda Odyssey has a new 2.3-liter engine with 150 hp. Unfortunately, it still lacks enough power to be a real driving machine. With a four side-door design, like a car, it really is more like a tall station wagon. Most owners reviewed prefer this design to other vans with sliding doors. All 1998 Odyssey models come with an antilock brake system and dual airbags.

The overall rating from 1998 Odyssey review is 9.1 / 10.0. Owners really enjoy the looks of the Odyssey minivan with the sleek, attractive front-end design change. The fact that it drives more like a sedan than a minivan 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. It has excellent fuel efficiency and, with the back seat folded down, tremendous cargo space.

There were hardly any owner reviews that pointed out shortcomings for the 1998 Honda Odyssey. The most significant problem still, as noted above, is a lack of power. The other most common complaint is road noise. One person was disappointed that this minivan is not a "chic[k] magnet."
