| ||What things have gone wrong with the car?||sliding rear dors open and close slowly, but I suspect that is a safety feature. Clunking sound coming from gas tank.|
| ||General comments?||WE purchased the 2002 Ex Odyssey model in late December 2001 in anticipation of driving across Canada to the Yukon and Alaska which we did in the summer of 2002.|
I spent 2 months looking at ane testing all major minivans. The closest competitor we considered was the Sienna and the Montana.
We chose the Odyssey, not based on price but on other reviews, Honda quality, size and specially the 240 hp engine. The fold down rear seat certainly makes life easier. In the space of 7 weeks we put on 18,000+ km ( 12,000 miles) as we criss-crossed the continent. The Odyssey peformed flawlessly. Even fully loaded with a family of 4, dog, camping and sports gear we got excellent highway gas mileage. The van cruised effortlessly at 130 kph to the surprise of a few motorcyclists on ther AlCan highway.
