Besides some transmission snafus in the past, most people I know with Odysseys have virtually no problems.

I know many people who have put 150K+ on theirs with little to no problems.

2008 model. 20,000+ miles without an issue. bought it for reliability and quality and have not had one issue to date.

For so many features, this van is extremely reliable. It also can take a beating from 3 kids.

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.

May not be as good as the Sienna, but it will still be a great inexpensive van for many years.

Odyssey has reported reliability issues.

Expensive and frequent repairs. Too many uncommon defects occur at warranty expiry. Honda Plus extended warranty covers everything that never wears out!

The reliability of this van has been horrible and definitely not what i expected out of Honda. We bought it used from a family who meticulously maintained it at Honda. Anything that needed to be done, was done and done on time. first big issue was the transmission, it had 135K on the original. That costed about $5000 to replace, Contacted honda for assistance, they prettty much gave the middle finger. as its gotten more miles on it, its been problem after problem. and this van has been so expensive to maintain...for a 2006, parts are extremely expensive.

Many little problems. Always something. Reminds me of the Yugo.

Problematic transmission - see powertrain performance
2003 4dr Minivan, ext. 240-horsepower 3.5L V6

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

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.

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.

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

Pontiac Montana SV6 Reliability and Durability: Pros

Our family really loves this Pontiac Montana SV6. This is our third Pontiac Montana, we have also owned a 2002 and a 2003 and both were the extended models. We have had great performce from this van and we have the premium model that has the Onstar, DVD player, Cd and also wireless stereo. I drive this van daily and the gas mileage is great, this van also drivews beautifully on the highway. We just turned 161,000 miles on it and have had to do expected repairs, wheel hub assembly and we also had the front struts and rear shocks replaced as the back shocks were leaking. When routine maintenance is followed, oil change, tune up and other required maintenance, we have had no problems. Our only complaint is the cloth seats that seem to stain very easily, even with water dropplets ... We feel that they could have chosen a better material

Steering column problems were fixed under warranty, but kept comeing back. Still remain to this day and never 100% fixed. Brake rotors should not have warped so badly so soon. Wife is not an aggresive driver, so not abused. Nothing major so far.

the intake and head gaskets will need changing for sure as soon as warranty is up! Big job and big money. Also the wiring from the crank sensors to computer become faulty after 150k and it will take 30-40 hours of shop time to fix.
