"I purchased it because I was taking my parents to Idaho. I loved how driving the van the driver sat a little higher on the road. Now having a regular car, which sits lower, I sometimes have to sit up to see over the hood. This really makes me miss the van. My van had 235,588 miles on it and I had no problem selling it. The only complaint is when it rained water would leak onto the carpeting from the back hatch door. I was not ever able to stop this."

"2nd one we've owned. Regular rear doors. Super versatile seat/cargo configurations. Big on the inside, small on the outside (opposite of many SUVS)"

"I own this car for 16 years. other than regular maintenance like brakes, tires, exhaust no major failure. I have put over 260000 miles on it but still runs like a charm. Because of its age we don't use it for long runs now but earlier we drove it for 12 hours straight without any trouble. We drove this car very very long distance like from Illinois to Yellow Stone National Park and no issues. It has been in our family for such a long time that we consider it part of the family and don't think to replace it. It is the most reliable piece of machine that I have ever owned. I would buy another Honda Odyssey without giving it a second thought."

"Incredibly reliable car. Plenty of pep for a 4 cylinder car. Very easy to fold up seats to haul stuff. Spacious and comfortable. Good gas mileage for an older vehicle. Liked it so much we bought 2 of them and drove tem for over 17 years. Still have them. Have had very few repairs; mostly spent money on routine maintenance only. Highly recommend."

"Only reason I'm selling this is the Mexican govt doesn't allow permanent residents, which I just became, to drive foreign plated cars and foreign vehicles can't be nationalized at present. So it's going to Arizona with a friend to be sold. I bought it used 11 years ago in Missouri with 75,000 miles and it has taken me, my effects, 2 families etc everywhere possible with only a few minor hiccups induced by me. Do the specified maintenance and it runs and runs. Bought a 2004 Odyssey to replace it though I like my 97 much better. The 97 is smaller outside, with better gas mileage, handling, easier to park, 4 normal doors (Oh how I miss those) and the list continues. Best vehicle I've owned in 40+ years of driving and it was still made I'd buy another in a heartbeat."
