2001 Honda Odyssey from North America
Don't buy the older Honda Odyssey, asking for problems
I got the Honda Odyssey because of the name Honda. Got it for a great price used. Van was great for the first year I had it, but it has been a nightmare since then.
The second year I owned it, the catalytic converter had to be replaced for $1200.
Motor mounts $400.
Retainer spring for the brakes $300.
The air conditioner $800. The gas cap $250.
The traction control light started acting up, so another $287.
I've done all the work with the Honda Service and have spent more than $3200 on repairs. And now in the third year of my ownership the transmission is acting up. God only know what that is gonna run me.
The car has a lot of space and looks great, but I would not recommend it. I went foreign after owning American, and the problems still happened.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
