Stay away from used 2006 Odyssey. They have transmission / torque converter problems. The only known fix is a new torque converter for $2k. At 177k miles, you are also looking to rebuild the transmission.
Another known issue is the "active" engine mount failures. Also expensive to replace around $900.
I'd look for a lower mile Odyssey (20-40k mile range) with a factory warranty if you are fixed on Honda.
If you want reliable transportation at a low price look for a used Toyota Sienna ('04-'05). They have no known major mechanical problems.

For 11K you can have our Odyssey van. It has 104,000 on it.
#28084 of 30592 Good Price for an Odyssey LX or Odyssey EX

We have not decided on the trim grade yet. I suppose that decision depends on the final discounted price of the van. Does anyone have an idea what is a good price for and Odyssey LX or Odyssey EX? Thank you.

I would recommend that you do not purchase the ODY period. Read the posts on the forum on transmission issues. Honda lost a $90 million class action lawsuit in 2006. You can also google the ODY. The # of posts and issues with the ODY is significant over the years. Proceed with caution.

Thanks for the warning. Does the Pilot share the same transmission with the Odyssey?

Honda has manufactured several models of vehicles with transmssion issues as well as A/C issues, etc. If I were you, I would stay away from Honda all together. The quality is not what everyone thinks.
