What a great car!!!

byamericanvet Jan 30, 2010
6 Helpfuls 7 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Reliable, lots of space, comfortable, easy-to-handle.
Cons No keyless entry.  The cig lighter is in impossible location for GPS, etc.
Recommended it? Yes

It's amazing how much space is available inside.  Takes bulky boxes & large items easily.   We can fit in big dog crates, appliances, etc etc.
I like the auto side doors.  We had a minor problem with a side door when we first got the car.  Honda fixed it free and no... Read full review »


Not the Honda of Yesteryear

Pros Acceleration, Handling, Ride and Road Feel
Cons Interior, Build Quality, Reliablity
Recommended it? No

What do you think of when you think of a Honda? A nice, well equipped, long lasting, cheap to mantian vehicle? Well this is not that kind of Honda. This is one that will require more mantince, repairs and attention, and it would make Joan Rivers look cheap to maintain..

Pros It's a honda, need I say more
Cons sliding doors.
Recommended it? Yes

I bought this car new in February 2001 in anticipation of the arrival of our 3rd child. We just passed the 100K mile mark last month, and this car has been great. Our transmission went out at 79K miles, surprising for a Honda. But, in true Honda form, they replaced it free of charge based on an... Read full review »

Cons Road noise is apparent, just like in my Accord (unlike in a Toyota or Chevy)
Recommended it? Yes

Just purchased a used 2001 EX, with 77K miles. Handles like a car. Very comfortable. Even with that many miles, the van drives extremely well. I never wanted to own a mini-van, changed my mind after test driving this one. Also drove a new Windstar and Caravan...but the used Odyssey with 77K miles... Read full review »

Pros What pros? It makes ya yern for a Yota
Cons The entire van-manufacturer and all

Sorry about the length, i needed to vent.

We drive over 160K miles a year between 4 drivers, so we have a mini family fleet (8 cars). So amongst all the cars we own, we used to have a 2001 Odyssey van. Ex model, silver in color. WE bought our van because every one raved about it and... Read full review »


Still Happy with Odyssey 4 years later !

Pros Storage space, roominess, dependability, safety, gas mileage, low to no maintenance,...
Cons Power sliding doors are a bit slow, rear hatch door is heavy to slam shut.
Recommended it? Yes

I bought my minivan new in 2001. With two pre-teen sons involved in multiple sports and all of the equipment that goes with that, our Lincoln Navigator just wasn't cutting it regarding storage space.

I was somewhat hesitant to buy the product just because it was a minivan. However, I was... Read full review »


First Minivan and extremely happy

Pros Comfort, power, ride, convenience, handling, etc...
Cons Road noise is more pronounced on certain roads. Could be the road.
Recommended it? Yes

We bought this in August 2001, just before our third baby was born. (Can't fit three car seats in a Sentra, but I digress.) We test drove the Chrysler, the Nissan, the Toyota, and looked at the whole Ford and Chevy line. This one was the best of all of them.

We like the dual power doors... Read full review »


2001 Odyssey

Pros Rear seat, safety, reliability
Cons Poor instrument display, no external thermometer, no compass, no leather, no gas cap...
Recommended it? Yes

I like the 2001 Odyssey, and would probably get one again. I had to add custom leather. The interior is extremely noisy, but dealerships in OH and FL tell me that this is normal. The black/white LCD is difficult for me to read under various lighting conditions. The garage door opener button is... Read full review »


I love my Honda Odyssey

Pros drives like a car, good gas mileage, big trunk, roomy
Cons cloth seats
Recommended it? Yes

I have never owned a van before and we were considering buying a Dodge Durango. However, reading the safety information on the Durango changed my mind and seeing how many 5 star ratings the Odyssey had received led me this way. The van drives like a car. It's very easy to park. I drive about... Read full review »

Pros Its a Honda
Cons Not the usual fit and finish. Sticking doors.
Recommended it? Yes

Time to get a minivan.
I have always enjoyed the terrific qualities of the Honda line, so the Odyssey was almost a no brainer. I say almost, because at the time, they were almost nonexistant on dealer lots. Knowing this, we opted to test drive a Sienna. Ugh. The room was minimal and the prices... Read full review »


Why I didn't buy the 2001Honda Odyessy

byrustyrod Feb 7, 2003

Pros Safety rating, conversion versatility
Cons Boxy design, lack of inspiring colors, body sway on back roads
Recommended it? Yes

When I was looking for a new van in 2001, I got my chance to drive an Odyessy rather unexpectedly. Most dealers had a long waiting list for the van and there just weren't many on the lots to test drive.

One dealer I called had just received an unannounced shipment which contained one van... Read full review »

** Sorry this is soooo long**

We bought our 2001 Honda Odyssey in May 2001 when my 8 year old Ford Aerostar (my 2nd Aerostar, by the way) died a horrible, too expensive to repair death. Taking on a car payment was not high on our list of things to do that year, but I needed good, reliable... Read full review »

Pros Classy, versatile, and practical
Cons None!
Recommended it? Yes

We got this van in April of 2001. We absolutely love it. It is so handy to have. We have two small children, and by far, the handiest feature is the automatic doors. We were drawn to this vehicle because of it's superior safety rating. We never buy anything without thoroughly researching it first... Read full review »

Pros more room, more options, better safety, ergonomically designed
Cons sheet metal is 'soft' easy to dent, cost prohibitive
Recommended it? Yes

It is awesome! It had to be designed by a mom... If you were traveling from home to say Yellowstone park, where would all the luggage be? in the back, where would you want the spare tire to be during a flat? yep, behind the driver in the floor where there is no luggage. Pretty neat?

Pros Solid feel, responsive driving, reliability.
Cons Low MPG, high price.

My wife and I had been looking semi-seriously for a 1 or 2-year-old minivan for about 6 months. Our first choice was a Honda Odyssey, our second was the Toyota Sienna. After surveying a few local Honda dealers we found they each deal only about one used Odyssey every two years, so we weren't... Read full review »


The best minivan available

3 Helpfuls 4 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros reliable, roomy, clever rear folding seat
Cons auto sliding doors can be annoying
Recommended it? Yes

First of all its a Honda which means it is reliable. I do a lot of driving, 30k a year and the only problem I've had with the Odyssey ex is the auto sliding doors. These electric doors have eight metal contact that can oxidize and give a false warning that the door is not closed. I've had to sand... Read full review »


The Ultimate Ride

Pros Third row bench seat that folds down into the floor, and powerful engine.
Cons Radio and speakers could be better.
Recommended it? Yes

The Odyssey drives like a car and has great visibility. The ride is quiet and the car handles very well in the rain, snow, and traffic. The interior is very spacious and adults can easily get in and out of the car. There is an abundance of headroom for those who are tall. Getting into the third row... Read full review »

Pros The fair haired van, fast, reliability.
Cons Expensive, a bit of a gas guzzler (for a honda).

It's been almost a year since we got the Oddy. They always say the first year is the best one, and it has been. With nothing more than oil changes and scheduled tune ups at the dealer, this van has been impecable. Almost 18,000 miles on it and it's still going strong on it's perfect ride (no jinx...

Yes, I will add my voice to those who couldn't believe they got a minivan, but now I love the room I have! I also like that I can get the boys out of their car seats and get ready to go while I'm still in the van - in case of rain, etc. We tried out the Mazda - not enough power, tried out the...
