A Well Thought-out, Engineering And Manufactured Vehicle. — This is the second Odyssey we have owned. The first was a 1999 and we put well over 150K trouble free miles on it. We replace the original with this vehicle. This version is far more luxurious, better handling, braking, ride, and interior comfort. I know mini-vans are not "Sexy" but it is impossible to beat the versatility and reliability of this vehicle. I am continually amazed on how effortless it is to drive this car on highway. It cruises along at 80 mph without an issue and returning 28t mpg during long roadtrips. This is a heavy vehicle and as such, the mpg suffers in city (stop & go) driving. Thankfully, we never had to do much of that in this car.

Family Vehicle — This was a awesome van. The family enjoyed everything about it, it was just time to upgrade to a new vehicle. Our van had every option one could ever want. DVD, leather automatic doors! Excellent for any size family especially one that has small children.

Good Family Van — Good family van. Easy to accommodate 8 people for the long trip. Of course 6 people will be more suitable. Plenty of luggage room for a family trip of a week or longer. Reliability is also pretty good in my 5 years of using.

Overall Certainely A Very Good Vehicle And Most Of All Very Economical — Although a minivan it has impressive acceleration. has a good build quality, very durable so far.love both interior and exterior styling, has a very bold looking front. gas mileage is superb.cabin isn't very quiet, still manageable. So far very economical maintenance cost. surely a fun to drive. not very much impress with the braking distance of odyssey.

Very Happy With The Car. No Problems So Far — It took a few days to get used to how to open the doors wtih the remote. That was mostly a training issue. We love the car.

Every Family Needs One! — Love the power and the handling on the people mover. No squeaks or rattles and looks good too. Have only been taking it for regular maintenance so far. No unspecified visit to the mechanic as yet. Honestly, I find it fun to drive too :-)

Poor Gas millage compared to other vehicle's owned.

So Far This Van Is Ok. Next Purchase Would Be Different Dealer — Van is ok. I expected more standard options when we purchased it. My other van's Like (Dodge) had more standard options. The gas millage is very poor for this size engine? I would not purchase another Honda Odyssey again. We had to many problems go wrong with it and I think it is way over priced. Now the Paint is pealing all over the front end. I purchased a Bra to cover it up.

Pros

The Odyssey is a very luxurious, sporty, family vehicle with enough power to pass when you need to. The kids love the DVD player and I love the headphones that they wear, it makes for an enjoyable trip for all parties.

Cons

I don't care for the low air pressure indicators.

Overall The Odyssey Is An Excellent Vehicle And Well Worth The Investment. — I like the handling, it really handles like a smaller Honda car such as an Accord. The power and acceleration is very good. My favorite thing is how the Odyssey's transmission shifts, it's almost like a sports car. Not bad for a guy in a minivan.
