Please don’t double post, thanks.

So sorry. It was an accident on my end. My connection was weird, and I couldn't figure out how to delete the duplicate.

No way.


I would not. Too old with too many miles.


Any other options for $3000?


Yeah, the option to walk away.


2005 Odyssey is a BIG NO. Don't even think about buying that model year.

Dealer says, "New trade-in; runs and drives very well. Newer tires and tons of features. Just serviced here: new wheel bearing with hub, rear brakes, rear shoes with hardware, and new windshield due to some chips. It does show some cosmetic flaws to be expected with this mileage. Sliding doors are sometimes finicky, but do always work manually. This van still has plenty of life and reliability and is ready for your family vacation. Clean Carfax with good service history."

Show me a car salesman who’ll tell you his car is not worth buying.


Those are one of the Hondas to avoid. For mini van, Sienna is the way to go, even if it cost more or has higher mileage.

This helps A LOT, guys.  Thanks!  Looking in the Indianapolis, IN area.  $3000 tops.


Don't buy a Honda Odyssey of theses era i've go check out one, everything was fine and cool (Just an exhaust leak) but than after the test drive we (the owner/seller of the car and me) look the oil gauge and there was litteraly no oil !

The guy was really honest with me saying that he change it only once a year and never check it and was really suprise as I was of the situation.

Now im scare of all honda's ! (even if i got one xD )
