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, Wouldn't Hesitate To Refer To Anyone — It is powerful, smooth, very tight turning radius. Miles above the Pontiac Montana we traded it for. Looking to own it for a long time. Love the dual power doors. Going to put a sunroof in it someday. Glad to have cloth and not leather interior.

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.

Practical Family Truckster With Style — The 2005 Honda Odyssey is a great family car. With 2 kids and a dog, the extra space is much needed over a sedan or SUV. The power doors are an amazing convenience. Seats slide and remove with ease. The full stow-away seats in the back make hauling the various kids paraphernalia or occasional large appliance a breeze. Reliability has been what you'd expect from Honda.

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!

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.
