I had two Honda Accords that were perfect. Actually, the Odyssey we had (2007) was not that good, but we had bought it used so we decided to give a new one another chance. full 2010 Honda Odyssey review

Dealing with Honda over warranty issues at/near expiration. Expensive and frequent repairs. full 2006 Honda Odyssey review
2002 4dr Minivan, ext. 240-horsepower 3.5L V6

Fussy to service. Terrible dealer service. Uses Honda brand only fluids for brake, AT, steering, antifreeze. Dealer too busy or just lazy. Bad service. Poor and inadequate troubleshooting. I diagnose my own vehicle to tell how to fix it properly. full 2002 Honda Odyssey review

2009 0 Overall, I would buy the car again; and had planned to drive the car into the ground (>300,000 miles). But I sold the car at 84,000 before parts started to need preventive maintenance replacement, like hoses. I did replace serpentine belts and timing chain at 75,000 simply because I learned the hard way, and let a Volvo S-80, the best and most comfortable car I ever owned, go to ruin because I did not understand the importance of replacing the timing chain/pulley, although I had ~200,000 miles on the car at the time. full 2009 Honda Odyssey review
