Has been a exclent van, have 212,000 M. Just replaced timeing belt, water pump, drive belts, had two broken motor mounts. Cost $1385 dollars. Work was done by Honda. Other things I hear about the odyssey I have not had. My Honda dealer don't charge what other people said they paid for motor mounts. I paid less than $700 FOR 2.
i love my odessey! i wanted a 2002 body style for along time. i like the size of the doors for easy entry. they can be dent magnets, i have seen alot of banged driver side front fenders, as well as lift gates. when properly matained they are awsome multi-use vans. i have seen alot of pass. rear vent widow problems... they stick. i plan on investing on a new paint job, and carpet kit soon. i think they are classy and i plan on keeping it for as long as i can.
Bought used with 24000 miles in 2003, currently has 137500 miles and still going strong. My biggest complaint, the transmission, it went south at 103000 miles. Honda would not fix or replace under warranty. I had it repaired by a transmission shop, it went south at 23000 miles. Luckily, I had 24000 mile warranty. The transmission was replaced with a rebuilt at no cost.
The Odyssey has been in the family fleet since 2004, and my personal city commuter since 2007. Pros: large and comfortable in the day to day and longer trips, high quality interior, that late 90s Honda magic (that has been subsequently engineered out of their newer vehicles) of excellent visbility, handling, pep, durability and economy. Great city beater. Cons: Multiple tranmission failures, squirrelly dealer service (but eventual OEM-paid replacement), spotty door operation. Also, large size makes it a dent and scratch magnet when street parked.
