Why the 2002 Honda Odyssey?

Why Not the 2002 Honda Odyssey?

Reliability & durability

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.


High noise level. Can not hear passengers speak. Cannot hear radio without turning so loud it distorts.

Fuel economy

Only 13-17 MPG. Bad at nearly $4/gallon

Driving position & visibility

Steering wheel blocks important part of speedometer. Visibility to rear poor. Easy to miss a car to right or left rear.

Dealer practices

Added dealer markup. Bad. Terrible service, often breaks something else while in for service. High pressure finance guy. Will not buy Honda next time.
