Honda Odyssey FAQs and Reviews Honda Odyssey FAQs and Reviews Ask a Question

Is there any real way to convince friends and family that domestic-built cars are good enough? People ask me all the time about which import brand such as Toyota, Honda, or BMW, is the best for their next purchase.

Hi AskPatty, I just read your article in the NYT and was interested in this web site, since, as a female, sometimes I feel helpless going to mechanics (who are mostly men) for help doing things that I could have done myself if I knew how.

Hello, My elderly parents have a 2001 Honda Odyssey van with 105,000 miles. The dealer suggests replacing the drive belt (serpentine?) at this mileage (he has not even seen the car yet) and will charge $700.00 for this checkup.

Hi Patty, my 02 Honda Odyssey dashboard sometimes buzzes loudly when I turn on the car. The DRL light comes on too.
