- Gas Mileage Stinks, ECO Drive Herky/Jerky, Overpriced
I have researched Federal Stats, Oddessy clear has the best saftey ratings, and lowest Fatality Involvment rates of other MiniVans. (All Minivan's are generally safer than SUV's) Researched the car, and it seemed clear that Odyssey was best in class.
I thought the Chryler was the better value when you take price versus features into account. My Wife wanted the Oddyssey, so I decided to go with the Quality. (Reason= I would be divorced right now if I have the problems with the Chrysler that we are having with the Odyssey.) (IE we have a problem with the car that she wanted, No Marital Strife, we have a problem with the car that I insist on buying, Martial HELL)
The Nut's of our problem is that Oddyssey has been getting 15 to 18 MPG. Advertised is 21-28 MPG. I don't like the eco drive, I feel it come on and off, and I don't like that. The Honda Dealer won't return our calls with regards to this problem,.... They say they are waiting for Honda USA to get back to them. BS, it's been two weeks. The unofficially the service guy want's us to wait (I take that as a BLOW off and hope that we don't bother coming back.) There is a Break in Period, but my car is getting 25% lower MPG than I should.
The good news is that I didn't buy a Chrysler, because then I would never hear the end of it. ("we should of bought the honda...", and of course.)
Other than this problem, I thought the Entertainment controls are anything but intuitive. FYI (I was $2000 off MSRP going out to Sycamore IL, the best deal I could swing in Chicago burbs was $1,000 off.)
