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!

Great Van — Safe, Fun, Family transportation with rear seat luxury. Lots of power with good gas mileage. Third row seat is actually useful and comfortable. Lots of space for hauling all the kids gear. Great in every way except soccer mom image.

I Plan To Keep It For 10 Years. — I like just about everything about this Odyssey. It performs almost like a sports car and will haul a mountain of stuff. The seats are comfortable, it has all amenities, will carry seven adults in comfort, and routinely gets 25 mpg on trips running at 70-75 mph.

Honda Odyssey — I really like the configuration of the seats in this van. It's served us well with three kids and lots of stuff to bring on road trips. Low maintenance fees and okay gas mileage (can't complain). Overall this is a great choice for our family.

How I Grew To Love My Odyssey. — I was dragged from a 5 speed SAAB Wagon when I couldn't get the 3 car seats buckles across the backseat anymore. At first I hated the minivan. I couldn't hear what my kids wqere saying. I couldn't reach the seat when they dropped soemthing. I couldn't reach a knee to soothe someone. But then I took one of the middle seats out and made it a living o=room. We sat ont he floor and had picnis - watched movies and ate popcorn. We stretched out and used it as a room - a room on wheels. Once I cuaght on to how to use this car as a holding zone then my attitiude towards it got better. For a living room, the ride quality is absolutely amazing. For a multi-media room the mileage is just fine about 19-20 mpg. Braking is solid. Build quality is better than most. Doesn't feel like my SAAB - but SAABs now don't feel like my SAAB. The Odyssey is far and away the best designed mini-van. So for what it is, I absolutely love it. Would I rather be driving a 5 speed anything - you bet - but that won't be for awhile.

My Van — Perfect family Van, Doesnt look stupid to drive. Great for one of those I will never drive a mini-van person. One of the best fuel efficient van out there. The safest van around. the DVD system is a perfect addition to keep the kids quiet. Go and Buy one the 2008's are even better
