    2001 Honda Odyssey - The End...

    We bought a 2001 Odyssey new and pretty much raised our kids in it. 18 years and 315,000 miles with pretty much zero issues. At the end, we had trouble starting it, replaced the fuel pump, but not sure that was the culprit. Dealer said if we could drive it to the dealership they would give us $500 for it on trade on a new 2019 CRV. Day before we picked-up the CRV, I went out and tried to start the van and it fired-off. Not daring to let it idle down and die, I drove the van to the dealer with one foot not the gas and one foot on the brake. I hit every stoplight going across town - whew! Pulled into the dealer, handed the salesman the key - he looked shocked! Next day we picked up the CRV and the sales guy said - van wouldn't start. I said - your van, not my problem, we both had a good laugh.

    18 yrs, 315,000 - the van owed us nothing. What a great ride.

    Glad to be driving another Honda. Hope this CRV lasts a long time too.

    PS - we still have an Odyssey, a 1997 that belonged to my mom - who bought it new. It's got 227,000-ish miles - fingers crossed it will make it to 300k...

    Thanks for sharing, leeave96, what a great story. I had a 2001 EX, and thought I was "trading up" to a 2003 EX-L-RES...not. The 2001 handled better, and that 4-speed had perfect gear ratios for driving around town, which was the majority of my driving. Even then, it was still a great highway vehicle, and I think it was better for towing.

    Enjoy your new Honda CR-V.

    What a great run you had, that's like 506,000 kilometres where I live.
    I'm only at 360,000 kilometres with no problems what so ever. Hoping to match your mileage with my Odyssey.

    Nice, our 2001 treated us very well also until it got hit and totaled at 256K miles - still running like a champ then. Now I have an '03 and an '07.
