Isn't that a little like asking what's the EPA rated interior volume of a 911?


Sure there's an answer, but who really cares...

Hi, Alan. Performance is very important to me and was really the main reason I chose the 2002 Ody over the 2002 Grand Caravan ES 3.8L. which seemed pretty doggy power wise and a bit sloppy handling wise, even with sport suspension, but otherwise a pretty nice van and my second choice.

Here are some published numbers, the accuracy you will have to make a judgment on.
Car & Driver Feb 2000 issue long term test of their 1999 Ody with essentially the same 210 hp drive train as the 2001 at 40,000 miles. Their tested numbers where 0-60mph 9.4 sec, 0-100mph 29.2 sec and 1/4 mile 17.2 sec @ 82 mph. Top speed 117 mph governor limited.

C&D also reviewed the 2002 Ody with 240 bhp in their Oct 01 issue and estimated it's performance as 0-60 in 8.1 sec, 0-100 in 23.5 sec., 1/4 mile in 16.5 sec at 86mph and top speed 118mph, governor limited.

The 99-02 Ody's regardless of year, clearly have the power advantage over all other mini-vans in my opinion.

Yep Car and Driver gets 9.4 sec in their 99 Ody both new and now at 40,000 miles.

I think that their estimates for the 2002 Ody were way off. I think they were expecting the final drive ratio as the MDX.

Canadian Driver tested the 2002 Ody and got a time of 9.0 sec. So expect a half second faster 0-60 time beteween the 01 and 02 Ody's.

C&D's estimated 8.1sec 0-60mph does seem pretty optimistic for the '02 Ody. That's nearly as fast as the Accord V-6. BTW. When did Canadian Driver test the '02 Ody? That test hasn't been added to their web site yet.
http://www.canadiandriver.com Or am I missing something?

Thanks. Mark

Found it Canodyssey. Thanks. The Ody sure is the runaway winner in "Wagon/Mini-van of the Year voting".

No, Nestor, I won't keep my comments to myself.

And every time you come in and delete this, I'll come back and repost it--unless you want to delete your own little rant there.
