Sad to sell it after 23 Years

Sold it recently after owning it for 23 years and 310,000 miles with few repairs, just maintenance. Loved it but time to move on. Asked new buyer to keep in touch to see how many miles it will get before finally quitting. Loved seats which fold into floor to load all kids college stuff for trips back and forth to school. Nice comfortable but not a drag racer for a 4cyl. Miss you 1996 Oasis


Lasted Almost Forever

Traded it in after having it for 18 years with few problems. It's actually a Honda which Isuzu sold. It's the original "Odyssey" lower to the ground and with four swing open doors rather than sliding ones. It has a 4 cyl engine so it will win no races, but got 25 mpg for the life of it mostly in city driving. Also it was the first to have the 3rd row fit into the floor for more storage space if needed.


Loved It For 18 Years

This was a Honda Odyssey first generation, eve said Honda on the engine and other places in the vehicle. Loved it and all its original features now copied by many. Had first rear seat folding into floor, minivan with swing out(not sliding) doors on both sides. Comfortable and enough power as can be expected from a 4 cyl. Good gas mileage nad small enough to park anywhere even though it is a min-van. Seats 7 or 8 depending on trim. Bought a new Odyssey and donated this to be used for many more years by someone in need.
