Not A Bad Minivan. — We traded our Mazda 5 for an Odyssey cause we have three boys and the needed the space. Wife loves it even though she didn't want a minivan! Our Touring has everything. somethings like the CD player skip and the radio reception isn't great. It handles well, hauls well and plenty of space for kids. BUT beware of the PAX tires on the Touring models. We had no idea buying used what we got into. The PAX tires are robbery-priced and only Honda can put them on as every tire shop in the area refused to help me.

I See Why Its The Most Wanted Van In The Usa, Great For Family Transportation — Great Fun Family Van — love the way it handles and the power is there, great turn radius . Easy to accommodate 8 people for the long weekend trip. Plenty of luggage room for a family trip of a week or longer. Reliability is also pretty good in my 8 years of using. The power and acceleration is very good. my favorite, and what stand out for me is the way it looks and drives, also the sliding doors come in handy and how easy it is to drive is a huge plus. i would so totally recommend this van

Great Family Vehicle — Love the look, reliability and comfort of the Honda Odyssey. With 4 kids, it was the perfect vehicle for us. Ours has 147,000 miles and still no major mechanical problems! Even my husband liked driving it even if it was a minivan!

Fantastic family vehicle.  Very dependable, very practical

Put a few front bumpers on this car because she knocked them off.  Other than that, it has been great.  Not the vans fault she knocked the bumper off.

Great, Dependable, Reliable Family Vehicle — As far as a minivan is concerned, Honda has done a great job in the Odyssey. A very practical vehicle for transportation of the family. This van is very easy to get kids in and out of, it is comfortable and roomy for transport. This vehicle has all of the bells and whistles, front and rear bumper sensors, rear backup camera, navigation, DVD, 6 disc CD, power sliding doors on driver and passenger sides, power rear hatch door, etc., and so on.

Great family vehicle. Rear entertainment is awesome. Outstanding mileage for a van.

Cons

Side door rollers wore out inside of 100,000. Navigation has to be updated with a new DVD.

Best Van Around For The Money — Absolutely love the van. Had other brands, and understand why everyone wants a Honda. Engineering is awesome. Super reliable and a joy to take around the country. Kids stay entertained with whatever movie you put in. Headsets are great and all parts don't destroy batteries quickly. Would buy a new one if the mileage had gotten better. Same mileage as the newer models.

Awesome Van — This van is very roomy and handles like a car. Has plenty of get up an go for passing and gets decent mpg. Honda has problems with transmission with several year model Ody's and would say that is the biggest con i have or see with the van
