"I have owned my present Odyssey since it was new in April of 2001. Since that time, we have driven it from Michigan to Florida twice (and averaged over 27mpg), to Iowa three times (don't ask why) as well as innumerable trips from metro Detroit to Chicago.
In that time, all the faithful Odyssey has needed was oil changes, regular maintenance (including trans flush and replacement of all filters), one new set of tires (45K), and a new dash clock (due to the light going out and covered under warranty).
We recently performed the "big one" with the timing belt and water pump being replaced. New tires are also in order, but at almost 108K the Odyssey has been an amazing vehicle."
"We purchased our 2003 Odyssey new and have had no problems with regular oil changes every 3000 miles. It fits 6 hockey bags, 4 with goalie equip. in the rear cargo area. Great for long trips and tournaments with carrying a full load of people,luggage and equipment. Gas mileage on the highway trips was consistently 24 mpg even fully loaded. Around town about 19 mpg. The only down side to this van is the road noise, otherwise it's a great van."
