1995 Honda Odyssey RA2 4WD
When it comes to midsize family haulers, Honda has hit the mark since day one, and that's one of the reasons why the Odyssey is one of the only minivans we choose to specialize in. RA2's are extremely capable and offer all the space and amenities you'd want out of a van, with the low mileage drivetrain and cool factor associated with owning a RHD import! Our 1995 model sports only 67k verified/documented miles and most importantly came optioned with the sought-after 4WD drivetrain! Finished in Honda's Bordeaux Red pearl (R-78P) the exterior shows nicely overall. With a set of OEM rainguards, and snazzy factory nerf bars adding some JDM flair to the exterior, you'll certainly stand out amongst other plebeian minivans on the road. Apart from some typical age-related chips and dings, and a previous replacement of the front left fender in Japan, the outside is nothing to scoff at. For an all-season hauler with the space, efficiency, and running gear to conquer daily duty without breaking a sweat, this Honda is a Japanese Classic you oughta see to believe!
The interior is spacious, and offers up plenty of comfort and options to accomplish anything from a quick run to the grocery store to a cross-country road trip. The seats are trimmed in a plush patterned grey cloth. The material shows nicely with no notable rips, tears, or other miscellaneous wear outside of some age-related staining. The sweeping dash maintains a low profile and shows no major defects aside from some light peeling after the removal of a phone mount. The lower matte black dash trim is in good nick as well and houses a fully functional automatic climate control unit to supply the front of the cabin with ice-cold A/C and piping hot heat. Rear passengers have access to their own set of controls to fine tune the rear cabin temp to their liking. Power windows, locks, and power mirrors are fully functional, and make running your day to day errands a bit more comfortable. The seating arrangements in these RA2's are extremely versatile, the middle row folds fully forward and the third row can be completely tucked away into the floor to maximize storage space in the rear. For those looking to haul around a full squad, the third row is squeaky clean and ready to transport two additional passengers. Overall, there's not much to gripe about with the interior condition of this Odyssey, and with the factory carpeted floor mats, owner's manual, and maintenance booklets still intact, the next owner should definitely be confident they're getting a well-cared-for example.
Under the bonnet, you'll find most of the running gear to be identical to USDM odysseys, making parts acquisition and servicing a cinch. The punchy 2.2 four-banger is a formidable powerplant and has plenty of get-up-and-go around town with no added surprises at the pump. The motor cranks over with the twist of a key and a new 12v battery was installed to properly test the alternator. Our trained technicians covered all the bases while this one was up on the lift. A fresh oil and filter service and a new valve cover gasket ensure you won't lose a drop of lubrication, and a new air filter keeps this four-pot breathing healthily. Acceleration is plentiful, and you'll quickly find yourself cruising at comfortable highway speeds without hesitation. The smooth-shifting automatic transmission operates as intended and is the perfect mate for such a refined drivetrain, and the 4WD is there for you when needed. We've replaced the input shaft seal on the rear differential to give the drivetrain a slight refresh and she rides right as rain. For a 25-year-old vehicle, the suspension is smooth, soft, and predictable, and the brakes stop on a dime. This Odyssey has the equipment and maintenance to be put through its paces already, but to sweeten the deal we've even mounted and balanced new Kumho rubber on all four corners to keep grip strong for tens of thousands of miles to come!
