Family Truckster — If you've got kids, this is the shuttle craft you need. Seating space is comfortable, and its got more cup holders than I can keep up with. Nice factory stereo. Great for vacation or just hauling the entire family around town.

after 100K, they get expensive to repair.

Older Hondas, Meh — In and out of the repair shop with little kids gets frustrating. I think Hondas are great, but after 100K they need tender love and care that a busy mom doesn't have time for. My interior, leather held up nicely. Overall I had a good experience with Honda. gas mileage was ok, handling was fine. Never had a problem with going or stopping. Lots of blind spots

Great Family Mini Van — Nice to have a DVD player in the van for long trips or to keep family members occupied. Nice heated front seats and plenty of room. Runs excellent in the snow. Both side doors are automatic open with key operation.

Pros

beauty in and out, a wonder to drive, drives likes a car, hauls like a truck, with fold in rear seats, can handle most family loads.

Cons

Gas consumption, haven't found a way to tweak it

Would Be A Great Addition To Any Family More Than 3 With Infants — Performance is great with powerful braking system, interior makes u want to sit in it and drive all day though gas consumption will make u change ur mind. it is built stylishly with an aerodynamic shape which gives it a superb look. The 2005 Odeyssey actually drives like a car and is far lower than other minivans.

Great Overall Family Vehicle — This vehicle is great for anyone who has a big family. It is very reliable, good on gas and runs great. It has a lot of storage under the seat and in the floor, 14 cup holders and the second row seat has a removable jump seat.

Big Families Must Have It — I've liked every thing about this car specially the cargo and all the accesories which comes with the touring package. this car is a must for big families, it gives you all what you are looking for in a minivan, space, entertaitment, driver control and fuel effeciency.

It's Way Better And Has A Lot More Room Than Our Old Car Did! — Bought it used very nice car better than the one we had before it that one had all these mechanical and electrical issues and it took for ever to warm the thing up in the winter the Odyssey EX-L takes less time to warm up!

I Love This Car, And Will Not Buy Another While My Children Are In The House! — I really enjoy driving my Odyssey. It has so many features, I often say that my car is smarter than I am. It's such a quality minivan, I will never get another as long as the quality sticks! Honda thought of everything when they made the 2005 Odyssey!
