    Great Vehicle With Lots Of Mechanical Flaws. Where Is The Recall Help? — We have had for 3 years and are now installing what will be the 4th water pump. Every time you hit passing gear too hard or too long it shears off the water pump blades and overheats. Previously had to do serious front end work, replace fuel pump and the had to go in two times after install to seal off gas smell inside van. Honda next time.

    Pros: I really like a lot of things about this van.

    Cons: Mechanical flaws and lack of recall support make it a bad choice.

    Its an okay vehicle if you like computers, and not being able to get to 2 of 6 spark plugs. Not a manuel transmission. The front headrest push your head forward when your 6.2. The back seats have decent legroom.
