    It's A Honda. — Excellent handling and acceleration. Decent gas mileage considering it is a van. Solid as a rock and keeps on going. Beautiful paint job and nice lines. Has been rough on tires, but once we found the right ones for the weight of the van, no issues (Goodyear Regatta 2's). This is our family vehicle and we take it when we go on vacations up to Jersey and down to Disney.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Safest Minivan on the road (back in 2003)

    Cons: You would rather drive a peice of junk Domestic Car from Detriot

    Honda Odyssey 2003 -- As Much Fun As A Minivan Can Possibly Offer — The Honda Odyssey is the sports car of minivans. The acceleration is brisk (not terribly fast but well above average), handling is reasonable (esp. with upgraded performance tires), and the brakes do a great job even in panic stops. Honda is renown for their build quality and reliability. This vehicle is very utilitarian as I use it to haul my family as well as much cargo for work. Although my Odyssey is older when compared to the newer model, I think it still looks very nice as the design is still modern. I average 15L/100km around the city and 10L/100km on highway loops. My recent jaunts on the Sea-to-Sky Highway (twisty mountainous road) has proven to me that this minivan has legs (and muscles). I think the Odyssey is about as fun as one can get in a minivan. Highly recommended for families!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Well above average performance (straights and curves), well-built, very reliable, good looks, great value

    Cons: Needs more seat, 3rd row head rests need to be removed to fold down bench, no moonroof.

    My Beauty Of A Van — I love this van it is soo practical with the doors opening and closing with a push of a button. How I could live without that before I do not know. This car also has traction and wow I would have ran into a houses around me when it gets icy which it does often hey it is Iowa. It is a beauty also I am not ashamed that I drive a van at all.

    Pros: one button door opener

    Cons: the trunk does need to be opened manually sniff

    Our Honda Odyssey — Most powerful minivan...Tokyo Drift yo! 240hp of Vtec power. Handles like a kleenex box, but it's a van after all. Quiet, fast, has the bells/whistles we wanted. Power sliding doors are awesome. In an ideal world, I'd be driving the family around in a black M5, but hey, this is reality. :)

    Pros: Honda quality, power

    Cons: Gas mileage, but good for it's class. Cost.

    Mini Van — Bought it new. Had to, we needed a bigger car. Especially with the kids 16 months apart. I didn't want a minivan, but the Odssey has amazing "get out of it's own way power". It will be paid off in 11months. I plan on keeping it til the kids are grown. I have recommended it to my boss, she went out and bought one, the luxury one but still it was cool that she considered my recommendation. I have driven the CR-V and I like it but it is just not roomy like my VAN.

    Pros: Spacious, fits the entire family.

    Cons: the driver side door lock hasn't worked for the last 1 year.

    For The Young Lady Of The House, Drive Is So Fragile For Me — nice small 7 seater for the family. likes the auto sliding remote doors but too slow when opening.

    Pros: cheaper to maintain and the drive is just ok

    Cons: Too much of a fragile car for me to drive all week and looks inside like like a space shuttle from the driver seat

    After About Five Years Our Van Is Falling To Peices. — It's pretty good at first but after a few years it can be very expensive to repair what is going wrong.

    Pros: Automatic doors

    Cons: Automatic doors can get stuck
