Purchased As New
We purchased this car one week ago and love it. We traded in our faithful 2003 Odyssey and just love the redesigned look of the car and the different features that are now available. We are leasing the EX-L trim line.
The back-up camera comes on when you put the car in reverse. This is a terrfic feature. The "Cool Box" is great to store 4 bottles of water and keep them cool....although we haven't put the air conditioner on yet which works to keep your beverages cool.
Versus our 2003 Odyssey, the 2011 is much easier to get into the 3rd row, as the second row captains chair actually slides forward. Also this version has the automatic trunk relaease which my wife finds extremely beneficial....you can open it from the remote as well as from inside the cabin.
This van is also much quiter than our 2003 version which always sounded like we had a window open.
I typically do not buy a car in the first year of a redesign as I like the automakers to "take the kincks out of the car first", but since I am leasing the Odyssey, it's not really a concern as I intend to turn it back in after three years.
Although I had to get my 17 year-old son to program it for me, the bluetooth phone is a wonderful feature. However, I am not a big fan of talking on a cellphone while driving...regardless of it being hands-free or not.
Honda did a nice job with the redesign and we look forward to driving the van.
