I kinda wish honda still make a odyssey with a 4 banger right now, i mean the 2.4 liter accord engine can go to 190 hp, while the 1st gen Odyssey only had 140. i dont like how for vans nowadays, its only a v6 option, except for the the mazda 5, but that is only a 6 seater
Yes, some. Mine does. It's an LX 7 seater. Some come with captains chairs in the second row, some with a split bench. I have the split bench. The third row folds into the floor flat. Even cooler, the front seats can be reclined all the way flat and you can sleep in it if you'd like. I've got a rear video setup and do this to sit and wait for the kid's activities. None of the 95-98 honda vans have removeable second rows, but they do have regular rear doors with roll down windows, not sliders.

The 98ody/99isuzu oasis had 150hp, which does not sound like much, but it moves the van around just fine.

Actually, it is. The 3.5L in the Taurus X produced 62 more hp and 42lb-ft than the Freestyle's 3.0L, while being a little cleaner in Carb states.

The 1mpg difference on the sticker can be has high as 1.9 in testing, or as low as 0.1.
