A work horse

by Eri from on Wed Nov 19 2008

My wife has owned her car for 8 years now and she loves it. She carries things for her business in it, it has more room than any SUV in the market. It is also very comfortable for our family to use. The only thing better than this 1997 model Honda Odyssey is the 2004 model. No other van in the market even comes close. The only down fault of this vehicle is its 4 cylinder engine, which has quite a bit of power, but really needs a 6. And yet, because of the smaller engine we get 26MPG, which is not bad for a minivan!

Most Solid and Reliable vehicle I've owned

by crump from tyler texas on Mon Jul 09 2007

With 110000 miles on it, it's still as tight as it was new. Nothing raddles or shakes or buzzes when driven. It even has the original front shock struts and rides great. It has a rear coil spring suspension that when hard cornering, the vehicle kinda squats down and corners much faster than you would believe a minivan could. I've had the transmission flushed every 30 to 40k miles and it shifts like new. It's not fast by any means but is a very comfortable car and even has the rear AC unit. Tires are very cheap.

by Honda guy from Los Angeles on Tue Sep 21 2010

Great all around vehicle if you are the economical type individual. We have 163K on our '97 and still going strong. Car has held together extremely well and we have no plans on replacing this car.

Reliable, affordable repairable

by Greg from Chino, CA on Wed Jul 05 2017

Regular maintenance and dealer service have kept this 20 year old car purring. At 267K miles I am still driving this car on cross country trips of 2K miles plus. Comfortable seats, configurable floor space and a very comfortable ride.
