Resolved Question:

How many miles can a person expect to get out of a Honda Odyssey? Mine is a 2001 with 103K Miles--I'm wondering when I'll have to get rid of it. The timing belt and other belts have been replaced as well as a bunch of other stuff (as per the manual)

Thank you.

If you continue to maintain it, you should get around 180k - 200k before seeing any major suspension problems. The powertrain shouldn't give you any problems - as long as you sevice the oil every 3k, on time. Also the transmissions on these have typical problems that leas to an expensive overhaul, so you'll want to have the fluid serviced every 30-40k miles, which Honda fluid only. If you haven't already the plugs will need replacement at 100k. At around 180k or so, you start to see suspension problems, bushings, etc. The best thing you can do is repair oil leaks as they're found, leaking oil onto rubber suspension parts will cause them to deteriorate quickly. You may have the check engine lamp come on from hear onto 180k for some common issues. The ignition coil packs tend to fail, the EGR system can become plugged. All these are minor issues, except for the it's definitly wirth keeping if you can keep it maintained and inspected regularly.
