2009 Honda Odyssey
- It's the best of the best
- PAX Tires EXPENSIVE
Purchased As New
Simple: It's the best van on the market today. Everyone tries to copy it. The new VW looks almost exactly the same on the interior (Except that the VW is much much smaller)...the Toyota rides like a truck (other than that it's a fine vehicle) and well the Chrysler Town & Country is, to put it mildly...a Chrysler! (full of gimmicks, none of them good).
The PAX Tires - they aren't the best. They are run-flat tires that cost an Arm & Leg to replace...EVERY 30,000 Miles! (no joke, every 30,000 miles...and your average tire store doesn't carry them or have the equipment to replace them..that's right, you HAVE to use a HONDA store to get the tires..which probably add's to the price.) The tires (without rebate are $310 a piece people) For a tire that only get's 30,000 miles of regular "take the kids to school" driving. We're not talking about hardcore commuting, but regular driving. That's expensive.
Let's see, The Honda Odyssey...I've got the Touring w/Pax...my brother has the Touring w/Pax...my sister has the Model just under touring with out pax...the tires are much cheaper, like $100 -$150 per tire. The Touring has camera's to see what's behind you, heated seats, heated rearview mirrors, power everything, navigation, 6disc cd, dvd player, wireless headsets, leather (everything), Voice Command (example: Temperature 75...and the car does it)..and rides like a top of the line vehicle.
It's the best of the best. And while the new "boxy as all get out" Town & Country puts out a nice looking vehicle, it doesn't hold it's Value like a Honda...but yet costs about the same...and doesn't last as long as a Honda....check out a 5yr old Honda Odyssey, you'll see you can only find em with 60,000+ miles on em, and averaging mid $20k..a use Chrysler you can pick up for under $10k..that's Honda Quality & Reliability.
The Odyssey Touring w/ Pax is probably the best vehicle ever made, period. It's got power, style, and rides better than the most expensive Mercedes / BMW out there. But be prepared for expensive Tire Replacements....read morehide
