One of the nicest things you can say about a minivan is that is doesnt feel like one. So let me offer high praise for the Odyssey: It rides more or less like a car.

Less Civic, more Chrysler than 1999-2001 Odyssey
Pros: Power, ride quality, quietness; interior room, comfort, and versatility
Cons: Could be more stylish, no sunroof or CD changer from factory, low availability
Excellent minivan at a reasonable price. Shame it doesn't handle as well now, but this is the price of an improved ride. Read More at Epinions.com

2004 Odyssey - Put it on your list for Consideration
Pros: Honda quality, Honda ride (if you like it), double automatic doors, nice leather seats (heated)
Cons: Spartan interior, Honda ride (if you hate it), Anemic Stereo, Boring Dash.
Great lines, dual automatic doors, and leather seats that are comfortable for almost anyone. If you are in the market for a mini-van you must consider a test drive. Read More at Epinions.com

A minivan that drivers can enjoy!
Pros: I like to drive, and the Odyssey doesn't rob me of that pleasure.
Cons: It is not the quietest--there is a fair amount of road noise.
If you need a larger vehicle but are afraid of minivans, you will find yourself pleasantly surprised by the Odyssey. It's worth paying sticker price. Read More at Epinions.com

A nearly perfect mini-van
Pros: seats remove easily, lots of power, separate rear ac/heat controls, optional DVD or Navigation system
Cons: not enough storage, poor availability, dealers take advantage of popularity, no outside temperature gauge
If you are in the market for a mini-van and don't mind paying for quality, the 2003 Odyssey deserves a good hard look. Read More at Epinions.com

Hard to beat.
Pros: Mileage, quality, features- all great.
Cons: Shift lever is too close to the dash; should tilt out about an inch more.
My last Honda went 100,000 miles with NO repairs. Add the repairs to the cost of my Dodge van and I could have bought a Honda in the first place! Read More at Epinions.com

Happy So Far
Pros: Quiet smooth ride, good power, great use of space, overall great value!
Cons: Wish it had a compass and outside temp gauge and an accurate fuel gauge.
Great vehicle for the family, good value,albeit basic looking interior. If it holds up like my previous honda cars did, we'll be happy a long time. Read More at Epinions.com
