    I Love My Odyssey — Never thought I would be a van girl, but at this point in my life I LOVE my Odyssey!!! Very Roomy! Has DVD and plugs for video games! Fits my large Britax car seat comfortably. Lots of storgage! Fun and easy to drive! Wish I would have bought one sooner!

    Pros: DVD, Video Games, Comfort, Lots of storage, seating, appearance, easy to drive

    Cons: mine doesn't have electronic tailgate :/

    Our Utility Vehicle — We tow a pop-up camper a lot in the summer. We also need to be able to haul a full-size concert grand harp and its accessories and four people. Trying to find a vehicle to do all that pretty much limits the field to the minivans. It was a tough call between the Chrysler Town & Country and the Honda Odyssey. There are features from each missing on the other. So far we're satisfied that this van can do what we want.

    Pros: Nice ride.  Fun toys (NAV, DVD, XM).  Excellent cargo area.  Reasonable on gas.  LOVE the voice commands.

    Cons: Rear windows (3rd row) don't open at all.  HVAC controls are not intuitive or flexible - it's either all automatic or all manual.

    Great Family Car — For a minivan it has lots of power, and it's even got a sense of style. It's more fun than some BMW's I've driven in the past. We've put 250,000 miles on it and it still feels brand new. I wouldn't want to drive it to the bar, but if you have a bunch of drunk friends you can fit them all in. (or your kids, or the grandparents, or your bridge club, etc.) It's fairly noisy at highway speeds, and the driver side you can hear engine more-so than on the passenger side. It's almost impossible to get into trouble hurling it around corners. The feeling of the hydraulics stepping in is odd however, and feels disconnected somehow. Overall I really like this car, just wish it wasn't a minivan.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Fun to drive, amazingly stable, great brakes, reliable, surprisingly fast.

    Cons: it's a minivan.

    Lots Of Room — I have had several mini vans and the Honda Odyssey is by far the best. The touring model has tons of options, many of which I have not learned to use because I am not that savy with technology. My family is able to travel with 7 passengers very comfortably for long road trips with plenty of room for us and storage. Gas mileage is average to above average on long trips. Acceleration is good. Did not have any repair costs other than basic maintenance expenses which were average. Overall we are very pleased and would recommend a Honda van.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Excellent family van. Holds 8 passengers and has a lot of storage room.

    Cons: Braking system takes time to get used too during quick stops.
