- 26mpg on highway. Otherwise not what I expected of Honda's reputation.
- Rough ride. A good bit of wind noise. Radio controls too far away.
I had 3 Windstars and a Freestar. Two of the three had transmission failures. Then Ford stopped making minivans. I thought I would go for the best considering Honda's reputation.
My new 2008 Odyssey had a rattle around rear. Found three different causes. Bumper fascia slapping against underside of rear floor, lug wrench not held securely in tool compartment, rubber bumpers for rear hatch not properly installed. Repaired all myself. I find the positioning of the various controls awkward and in the case of the radio too far away from the driver. Sliding door handles function in an unusual manner. Transmission does a stange little shift when stepping on the gas just before coming to a stop. At 60 miles per hour the wind noise sounds like a hiss on the outside of the windshield. Wheels were improperly balanced and van vibrated at 60 mph. This van takes a lot of getting used to. Nothing seems natural or familiar.
