2004 Honda Odyssey - Price Quote

Visit Honda for more information on the Honda Odyssey.

Not old at all, the Honda Odyssey has already managed to win praise from all angles, all the while causing rivals to rethink the design of their own minivans. With power, spaciousness and safety, it's no wonder that Automobile magazine honored the Odyssey with the title, "Best Minivan."

The Odyssey is one of the better-selling minivans on the road today. Though 2004 doesn't see any ground-shattering changes to the model, it still comes in at a reasonable price for the type of service it gives. And with a 240-horsepower Honda powertrain leading the way, you can safely bet that the Odyssey will be driving the family around for years to come.

Available Models
The 2004 Honda Odyssey is offered in three trim levels: LX, EX and EX-L.

Interior Features
The 2004 Honda Odyssey doesn't try to cram in the passengers. It has three rows of seating for a capacity of seven. The third row folds flush with the floor, and the capable minivan then offers 146.1 cubic feet of cargo volume.

There are quite a few standard items that come with each and every Honda Odyssey model, though the upper level trims obviously add more. The 'L' in the EX-L trim's name refers to its lush leather upholstery. Also standard with this top-line model are heated front seats-a nice feature to have as winter approaches.

EX-L models also offer the most attractive options available for 2004. Two that really stand out are a DVD entertainment system and a useful navigation system.

Exterior Features
The Odyssey's look is clean and modest. Dual sliding side doors are power operated on all models but the entry-level LX.

Honda guarantees the 2004 Honda Odyssey's durability, pointing out that the minivan should require no major tune-ups for the first 105,000 miles. Putting the 240 horsepower to use is a 5-speed automatic transmission. It features advanced Grade Logic Control, which avoids gear hunting on uphills and descents. It also downshifts for added engine braking.

The engine that pumps out the 240 horsepower is a 3.5-liter V6 model. It delivers the horsepower at 5500 rpm, offering up to 242 lb-ft of torque at 4500 rpm as well.

All 2004 Honda Odyssey models come with standard traction control. It gives the minivan stability and cornering control, among other things.

Safety and Security
In addition to traction control, all Honda Odysseys also have dual front airbags, front side airbags and antilock 4-wheel disc brakes.

New for the 2004 Honda Odyssey Colors

The 2004 Odyssey adds no new exterior colors but the interior color on Redrock Pearl models is paired with a Saddle interior (changed from Gray). Odyssey colors are Midnight Blue Pearl, Nighthawk Black Pearl, Sage Brush Pearl and Sandstone Metallic, Havasu Blue Metallic, Starlight Silver Metallic and Taffeta White
