You NEED to check the channels on either side of the roof for rust. It is becoming prevalent.

IMO the later model is better but thats usually always the case aye.The 4 cylinder ones use a hell of a lot less petrol than the 6's. Ours is a great space for 4 people especially when taking lots of stuff. Id never have anything smaller for our needs. Good safety rating too. good luck.

ok thanks. james and grangies. I have a toyota caldina station wagon. but want the extra seats. and this one looks very tidy.

This is the first generation MPV built by Honda. It was very refreshing at the same was it was built using a variant of the Honda Accord platform. It drives more like a car than a van of that era.

However 1997 Odyssey is a very old car by now. Even a car with the highest reliability rating cannot cheat age. Unless it is a very well cared for example (make sure you have a thorough inspection done), it might pay to look for a newer, perhaps a second or even a third generation Odyssey.

Wise advice from smalltrader2, and I believe later Odysseys' constantly variable transmissions (CVT) may not be without problems - best to go for one with the standard auto transmission.
