Selling Our 2004 Honda Odyssey Van

I am selling our 2004 Honda Odyssey EX-L van. It just turned over 100,000 miles and the new car bug has bitten Lulu. She just came back from a long trip of driving rental cars through the midwest - and all of a sudden it is new car time. That's okay with me - I would be happy to buy two new cars every year - so let the shopping begin.

This Honda has been very good to us. All I have ever had to do was replace the tires and battery. Between that and faithful oil changes - this car has pretty much been on its own. We have kept it in the garage - so the paint is in excellent condition. The gray leather interior is also flawless.

This is the EX-L version which means it is the top of the line. Besides leather inside - it has front and rear radios - AC setting for front middle and back - a DVD player with wireless earphones entertains the kids in back - rear seat folds into the floor - and four luxurious captain chairs recline guests in luxury. The side doors are powered and have remote controls. The drivers seat has 8 way power. It plays CDs in a high performance digital stereo.

For performance it has - alloy sport wheels - Michelin tires - 4 wheel disk brakes - 240 HP engine - cruise control - tilt wheel - radio controls on the steering wheel - fuel injection.

We have driven this van north to Pennsylvania - south to Miami - and west to New Orleans. It is a powerful van that is a quiet cruiser - get 24 MPG highway - 20 MPG in town. It was a great party van for tailgating at football games or a fantastic changing cabana at the beach.
