2000 Honda Odyssey LX 3.5 V6 from North America
The all around best minivan
EGR system clogged.
Transmission broke at 92,000 miles.
Clock light burned out, but replaced for $3.
This minivan drives and handles like a competent car. The turning radius in amazingly small for a long wheelbase vehicle, thus is is fairly easy to park. Emergency handling and braking is excellent. Power is more than adequate.
Fuel economy is surprisingly good for such a roomy vehicle. I measure about 25 mpg on interstate trips and 20 mpg around town.
Road noise is intrusive on rougher highways and can be annoying on long trips. I understand newer Odysseys are quieter.
Seating, roominess and ease of re-configuring are all excellent. There is plenty of room behind the 3rd seat.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
