2002 Honda Odyssey Overview

The 2002 Honda Odyssey is the same minivan design as it has been for the past 3-years. The V-6, 3.5-liter engine is now more powerful with 240-hp. It has quicker acceleration, though may be sluggish going uphill. All 2002 Odyssey models come with an (EBD) Electronic Braking Distribution system that calculates weight distribution inside the vehicle, and will adjust braking action during hard stops. All models feature an optional navigation system.

Owners really enjoy the looks of the Odyssey minivan with the sleek, attractive design. The fact that the 4-wheel independent suspension 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 a poorly designed transmission, even with the new 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 2002 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, now has an entertainment center with improved speakers, and is probably the best bargain on the market.
