2005 Honda Odyssey

The 2005 Honda Odyssey has, as predicted, an all-new minivan design.  What is incredible is Honda's ability to increase the interior space - and comfort - without any noticeable change in size of the exterior vehicle.  You may notice the new 16-inch wheel design as the only major change to the outside.  

All 2005 Odyssey models have electronic traction control via ABS with their (EBD) Electronic Braking Distribution system.  Drivers really enjoy the looks of the Odyssey minivan with the sleek, attractive design.  The fact that the 4-wheel independent suspension makes driving smoother, the more quiet ride also appeals to many user reviewers.  It has excellent fuel efficiency, low emissions, and with the new 60/40 back seat folded down, incredible cargo space.

Owner reviews show an overall rating of 9.2 / 10.0, for the 2005 Honda Odyssey, though some people have expressed real disappointment.  Does it make you wonder, where do the "lemons" come from?  Now with standard side airbags, this vehicle has been awarded 5-stars in all crash test results.  This year Odyssey review indicates that curtain side airbags have been included.  This minivan comfortably seats up to eight people, and keeps its reputation as the best mid-size SUV on the road.
