Getting close to 300K, your talking about rebuilding or replacing most components in the vehicle, including the engine and trans, if they weren't rebuilt already. Are you handy with fixing cars, if not you will be in the garge often. Unless you get it for a great price, I'd find one with less miles. Just my 2 cents Maybe other Honda owners can comment?

I had a 1995 and sold it at 400k. AC was not working but generally the engine was good. If u have the service history and it's good... U probably can hack it. Also, depends on the sale price. Otherwise go for the 2002 up. No tranny issues there

Recommend having it checked by a mechanic. Good luck with it. My 2000 is on her 4th tranny, but at 190,000 she is riding better than ever.

Just sold my 02 when she was at 260k. I was lucky. Original tranny. Just moved to 05. Sweet van. Love the Odysseys. I'm on my 3rd ... Used all the generations up to 05. Love them. Inspect it and make a decision
