I bought this from the owner when it was less than six months old. I have loved it and had no problems with it except for the air conditioning has started not to work. It cools but the blower fan is tempermental. Sometimes it works but not others. Hit a bunp (not a major one) and it shuts off. After almost eight years of running, this is not a deal breaker. I drove Caravans from the time they came out until I got this Honda. I will never go back to Dodge. Service was bad, last car was a red lemon. Honda has been great and I have no complaints. No kids but it hauls anything and a sheet of plywood lays flat in the back. I regret that I did not get the electonic rear hatch, but that is the only regret. At this point I have no plans to trade as I still have a lot of life and pep in this car.
I have owned this car since it was new. It has been a great car and is very comfortable on long trips. The well in the back is great to keep groceries from rolling all over the car. The rear seat easily stows for extra room. This car has all the bells and whistles, except automatic headlights. Strange, but I can deal with that. I highly recommend this car for anyone who has kids, travels a lot with friends, or needs interior storage for their lifestyle.
Excellent vehicle and now has over 100,000 mi. Brakes cost $800 but only after 80,000 mi. VERY HAPPY with the car.
This exl model has been the best new car i've ever bought. I have 101,000 miles on it and it has never been to the dealer for repair. I bought the extended warranty and never used it. The person looking for user friendly oil filter replacement should turn the wheels all the way to the right and you can see the filter without getting under the car. Put on an oil drain module like a Fumoto valve and you dont have to jack up the van to change oil. Also be religious about changing transmission fluid. I try to do it every 30,000 miles and the shifting improves immediately. Use Honda z1 ATF. The AC works pretty hard in hot weather and I would like to see brighter headlights. Also e religious about changing
WE JUST BOUGHT OUR ODYSSEY, IT HAS 107082 MILES ON IT . FOR SAFETY RASONS ONLY WE JUST HAD ALL BELTS, WATERPUMP CHANGED. WE ALSO HAD TRANS FLUID CHANGED, SO FAR ITS A GREAT VAN, WE PRAY IT WILL CONTINUE TO BE A GREAT VAN. HONDA IS GOOD QUALITY. THE COST WAS 761.31 FOR LABOR & PARTS.
This is a fantastic car !!!!! I owned three Dodge minivans prior to switching (at my mechanics advice) to Honda. Each Dodge was its own circle of purgatory the Honda is heaven!! I lived at the Dodge service getting repaired ...my Honda needs only routine maintenance. I have put 130,000 plus miles on this car in all kinds of conditions and it has proven reliable, comfortable, and reasonably inexpensive to operate. It has great pickup (zippy 0-60) and rides pleasantly. Road noise level is low to average for a mini van but may seem a little noisy if you are used to a car. You will keep this minivan for a looong time so protecting it is good.( If you plan to camp or haul garden supplies or other messy things, spring for the large rubber supplemental mat for the back storage area. I also sprayed my seats with stain proofing when it was new.) Like all minivans it takes a while for ac to cool it in the Louisiana summer, but it has better than average heating and cooling. I bought the lower level model and had a rack put on. I did not get auto doors and have not missed them. My only regret is that I let the salesman talk me out of the back up viewer for the dash board. (One bump into something will pay for the viewer). The line of site when backing up is like a SUV and somewhat worse than some other minivans so be careful. The maintenance department at dealerships vary greatly. The one in Shreveport is fantastic so I expected the same elsewhere but hit one that was terrible. If you hit a bad one try another. You can get most maintenance done at service stations try to use Honda parts.
