1999 Honda Odyssey LX from North America
Ongoing transmission and emissions problems
Constant problems with the catalytic converter.
Complete transmission failure.
The engine is remarkable - it seems to be indestructible. The transmission is another story. Look around and you'll find similar stories of multiple transmission replacements even at lower mileage. Also, it's a constant battle to keep the check engine light from coming on, almost always related to the catalytic converter & O2 sensors.
The vehicle is fairly comfortable and has superb visibility, but I would tell anyone to stay away due to the issues I mentioned. It's also noticeably noisy at highway speeds. As old as these vehicles are at this point, I'd say the best case scenario is to get one on the cheap for short term transportation.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
