2011 4dr Minivan, ext. 247-horsepower 3.5L V6 w/DoD
5-speed automatic FWD
Besides some transmission snafus in the past, most people I know with Odysseys have virtually no problems.
2010 4dr Minivan, ext. 244-horsepower 3.5L V6 w/DoD
5-speed automatic FWD
I know many people who have put 150K+ on theirs with little to no problems.
2010 4dr Minivan, ext. 244-horsepower 3.5L V6 w/DoD

Hoping it holds up to our expectations for a Honda.
2009 0 Overall, 9 out of 10.
2008 4dr Minivan, ext. 241-horsepower 3.5L V6 w/DoD
5-speed automatic FWD
2008 model. 20,000+ miles without an issue. bought it for reliability and quality and have not had one issue to date.
2008 4dr Minivan, ext. 244-horsepower 3.5L V6

Honda reputation for reliablity
2008 4dr Minivan, ext. 241-horsepower 3.5L V6 w/DoD
5-speed automatic FWD
For so many features, this van is extremely reliable. It also can take a beating from 3 kids.
2007 4dr Minivan, ext. 244-horsepower 3.5L V6 w/DoD
5-speed automatic FWD
Hope its as good as reported

Previously owned a 2003 Honda Odyssey that was completely trouble free for the 65,000 miles that we owned it. We only had to replace it because of a DUI hit and run that totaled that van.

Honda has a reputation for reliability.

May not be as good as the Sienna, but it will still be a great inexpensive van for many years.
2008 4dr Minivan, ext. 244-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
Odyssey has reported reliability issues.
2006 4dr Minivan, ext. 244-horsepower 3.5L V6 w/DoD
5-speed automatic FWD
Expensive and frequent repairs. Too many uncommon defects occur at warranty expiry. Honda Plus extended warranty covers everything that never wears out!
2005 4dr Minivan, ext. 255-horsepower 3.5L V6 w/DoD
5-speed automatic FWD
Many little problems. Always something. Reminds me of the Yugo.
2004 4dr Minivan, ext. 240-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
Problematic transmission - see powertrain performance
2003 4dr Minivan, ext. 240-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
Automatic transmission problems, trim falling off, radio shuts off each time battery runs down and requires a trip to dealer to reset, fuel filler door stops working which makes entire electric powered door not open on one side of vehicle.
2003 4dr Minivan, ext. 240-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
Lots of reports of transmission problems on earlier models, but I think by 2003, they had it sorted. Power doors and rear windows are very expensive to repair when (not if!) they break.
2002 4dr Minivan, ext. 240-horsepower 3.5L V6
5-speed automatic FWD
Transmission failed quite early even with changing transmission fluid every 10,000 miles. Not durable. Rattles, Squeaks, Hardware breaks, doors stick. Supposed to use only Honda brand transmission fluid, brake fluid, antifreeze. Next? Honda Air.
2002 4dr Minivan, ext. 240-horsepower 3.5L V6

History of transmission failure,window motor failures, door motor failures, rattles, squeeks, etc.
