Are Odyssey and CRV so similar

    I'm just wondering if they are so similar that Chilton issued single
    book for two models, "Honda CR-V Odyssey 1995-00 Repair Manual". And I'd
    like to know if the Odyssey is described enought in the book to buy it
    if I've got an Odyssey.

    Thanks for any thoughts

  2. No, they're COMPLETELY different.

    Odyssey and Pilot are similar, and were spawned from the same platform
    that gave us the previous generation Accord. CRV is an entirely
    different platform. CRV and Element are simlar--and are built on the
    Civic platform.

  3. =================

    I bought that manual from the dealer and found it to be quite adequate.
    I've used it for both CRV and Odyssey. If you are not mechanically
    inclined, it won't make a difference how good the manual is. I like the
    'exceptions' that are given, like how to get around using some
    specialized tools..

    The original Odyssey isn't supported terribly well because it has a few
    issues, like door panels that fall apart, ABS sensors that die. But
    that's what the GROUP is here for.

  5. =============

    I paid about $31 Cdn in Edmonton. Might be cheaper at a book store or
    Canadian Tire / WalMart.

    Follow-up: The Chilton book is # 30300, and has a picture of a red CRV
    on the cover. :)
