Automotive News: "Restyled, Re-engineered" Odyssey for '04
 Date: May 23, 2003 17:10
 Submitted by:  JeffX

 Credibility Rating: 5


In a report on the resurgence of Minivan popularity (link above), Automotive news has a table listing the new models for the '04 model year. The Odyssey is shown in that list, stating that it will be "Restyled, re-engineered". Now this fits in with the 5-year model cycle plan that Honda announced back in the late '90s, but this information is in direct contradiction with word I have received from people "in the know", who have stated in no uncertain terms that the FMC would occur in MY'05.

Perhaps Honda is being cagey with the information that is released, as technically a "restyle, re-engineer" is not the same thing as a FMC. Other models shown in that list (Sienna, Quest) are described as being "redesigned" for the '04 model year, so there is a distinction. Automotive News is a very credible source, so I'll have to see if I can clear this up somehow.
