- All Safety features included, POWER, handles like an accord, feels tight.
- Some road noise.
Wow. I keep asking myself why I did not buy this minivan sooner. I really wanted to buy american but... I suggest that if you want to buy american, don't test drive, or look to closely at this minivan.

- Good power, safety, lots of room, storage
- doors are heavy, paid MRSP, too big of a jump to EX, no roof rack standard
This car has a lot of power. It beats Toyota and Nissan in horsepower. It was a little pricey but it is worth it. The interior stays clean and is comfortable. There is plenty of leg room for all the passengers. The heat and a/c are a little strong and climate control would have been nice. A roof rack would have been nice. Overall this car is a lot better than the Sienna LE....read morehide

- comfort, ride, safety features and good fuel economy. great buy for the value and safety features
- none so far as i have driven it for only 150 mile but seems like it is bit noisy on high way.
Last week I bought Honda Odyssey LX from huntington honda one of the best expereince I had price was unbelieveable 22,986 just few hundred dollars above the invoice price. This is the best minivan I ever had and while shopping around I also looked for Toyota Sienna and Nissan Quest. Compared to Toyota it is much easier decision to buy Honda as with toyota there are very few standard safety and equipment features and when you need to have side or curtain airbags the price jumps. Nissan was another choice but the NIssan dealers in general are very rude so it was not a consideration after visiting two Nissan dealerships (Smith Town Nissan and Hubberstd Nissan in Suffolk county NY)
Over all our family is very happy with the choice we made and if I say we love our Odyssey it won't be an exagerration...read morehide

- VERY strong fast V6, Great reliability, Great new looks
- none at all this is the best van out there
This van is just great! We have had it since December and gets good gas milage and has the most pickup I have ever experianced in ANY van. It drives just like a car and I dont ever feel like im driving in a van until I have to back up. I bought the Odyssey over the Sienna because I know Honda is reliable seing how this is my third one (1985 Prelude, lasted 14 year and a 1998 Accord EX V6 which I still have and runs like brand new) and and very happy with the Odyssey so far. My aunt has a 2004 Toyota Sienna LE and it is a good van but I realllllllly dont like the steering (find its too light) breaking is also too light and find the styling on the Sienna ugly while I find the Odyssey looks just like a car from the front. I doubt I will have any regrets with the Odyssey just like I have no regrets from buying my Accord over a Camry or my old Prelude over a Celica....read morehide

- Powerful V6, Nice Features, Pretty good Fuel Economy, Great Price.
- Some sort of noise from back, wished it has some Sienna features.
This is a great van. So far i have 10k miles. Van runs very smooth like the Toyota Sienna. But wished it had radar cruise control available, rain sensin wipers, etc. available like the Sienna. My uncle has a Sienna CE and hit the sidewalk edge and got a flat. I just laughed and said he should never buy a Toyota. They are unreliable. I traded in my 150K 1995 Toyota Avalon. Very unreliable. Got a flat when i ran over some metal and battery died when it was only 8 years old! But the only thing i wished was that the Odyssey came better equiped like the 2005 Toyota Sienna. But i have no regrets....read morehide

- Fantastic van.
- Gas milage not good for first 6 months, interior scratches easily
I love this van. The only complaints I have are that the first 6 months that I owned it I only got 13mpg. These were cold months and may have had something to do with it. Two weeks ago (when it got warmer outside) I got 16mpg and yesterday it was 18mpg. I'm much happier with this since it is advertised at 22-28. Maybe it just needed to be "broken in".
The only other thing that I would warn people about is that the dash and door materials scratch easily. I think this should be improved in a van that sells for so much.
Other than those two things. I can't say anything bad. It's a great van. I love the fold down seats in the back. They are so easy to operate. I hope to have this van for a very long time....read morehide

- I really like this car and it rides good.
This is a great family car!!!!! Also it is nice and big. And it is big enough so my kids don't all have to be squished together in one row of seats.

- Lots of power; good interior space
- LX model passenger seats a bit tough; bad blind spot on driver's side
The best minivan out there for a reason. I got an LX because it has the same amount of horses and safety features (except the run-flat tires) as the other models. Granted, there is no power door openers, but I can live without that.
This car has insane power. The first few times I drove it, I nearly chirped the tires with (what seemed at the time) light touches on the gas pedal.
My wife loves it and says, "I feel sorry for people with kids who don't have a minivan. I feel sorry for people with minivans who don't have an Odyssey."
In short, if you can afford one of these things and need the cargo and passenger space, buy one....read morehide

- Powerful, tight, great price and it's not a Montana
- Dash lights confusing
We love our van. The LX model has all of the basics we need for driving 12,000 miles per year - power windows, locks, cruise, tilt wheel and A/C. We bought it one day after saying "enough is enough" with our problematic Montana.
The van looks and runs great and has more than enough power. Our only complaint is the dash lights. They come on when the door is opened and operate independently of the head lights. This casues confusion at night, in town especially, since it leads you to believe the headlights are already on when they are not. The van is put together well and everything seems to have that nice, tight fit "feel" to it....read morehide
