2000 Honda Odyssey review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview
Odyssey was redesigned for the 1999 model year and is based on the front-wheel-drive platform used for the Honda Accord. The big news for 2000 is that a satellite-linked navigation system is a new option for the top-line EX model.

Honda sold a smaller Odyssey minivan from 1995 through 1998 that it shared with Isuzu in an exchange program. Isuzu received the minivan, called the Oasis, and gave Honda a version of its Rodeo sport utility vehicle — Honda’s version is the Passport. However, Honda keeps the current Odyssey to itself, and Isuzu has left the minivan market.

Exterior
The original Odyssey was 187 inches long and had four conventional, swing-out side doors. The current Odyssey is 201 inches long — about the same as a Ford Windstar or Dodge Grand Caravan — and has sliding rear doors on both sides. Both sliding doors are power-operated on the EX model, and they open and close manually on the base LX model.

Interior
All models seat seven, but the LX model comes with a standard two-place middle bench, and the EX comes with two bucket seats in the middle row. The buckets are optional on the LX.

A carry-over feature from the original Odyssey, the three-place rear bench seat folds flat into the floor instead of being removed, which creates enough space for a 4-by-8-foot plywood sheet. When the rear seat is in use, there is a deep cargo well at the rear and 32 cubic feet of storage space. With the rear seat folded and the middle seats removed, maximum cargo volume is 163 cubic feet.

Under the Hood
A 3.5-liter V-6 with 210 horsepower teams with a four-speed automatic transmission as the only powertrain in the front-drive Odyssey. The same engine powers the Acura RL luxury sedan, and it runs smoothly and delivers brisk acceleration in the Odyssey.

Safety
Antilock brakes are standard on both models, and the EX adds traction control. Side-impact airbags for the front seats — a feature available on some competitor’s models — are not available on the Odyssey. Nevertheless, the Odyssey recently received the highest rating in the federal government’s side-impact tests. The Odyssey and Ford Windstar are the only minivans to earn five-star ratings for both front and side impacts.

Performance
A potent engine, carlike ride and handling, a spacious, well-designed interior and reasonable prices make the Odyssey an excellent choice among minivans.

Owned my Odyssey since it was brand new.

I read a few of the reviews on the Odyssey, but not one that I read said anything about the transmissions. The 2000 Odyssey was made with a transmissions that was to small for the van. I am on the 5 transmission. First one went out right after I hit 100,000miles. Honda and I split the cost of that one. 4 more since then. I do have over 300,000 miles on the car. But I did want to make sure people know there is a transmission issue.

1 of our 3 Honda Odessy vans!

We have a 1995, 2000 and 2005 so we must love them! All 3 have had minimal or no work needed and we drove the 2 older ones well past 300,000 miles! It’s safe to say they are very reliable and worth the money we spent on them!
