Purchased As New
This is my first minivan, something I knew I needed for the things that I do. There aren't too many true minivans left among the various manufacturers, so narrowing down my choices to the Honda and Toyota (Sienna) didn't take long. Both had very comparable basic features in terms of cargo and seating, comfort, driveability, etc. In part, the standard extras in the Odyssey's base model that won me over: bluetooth, rear camera (which is really handy,) USB jack (also really handy,) and electric driver's seat. The mileage is also rated higher than the Sienna, and the seats are much easier to fold-down, and remove (as required,) and the stereo is much better as well.
While the Odyssey was priced about $2100 more than the Sienna, I was waiting to see if my negotiated price would retain most of that difference, and I still might have considered the Toyota just to save some money. Unfortunately for Toyota, they really weren't doing any deals, and my final prices were very comparable. Buying the Odyssey made complete sense, so I did!
I've had the car only a week, certainly too soon to talk about reliability or the kind of mileage I'm getting, but I will say that it's a pleasure to drive. I have yet to find a complaint about anything, and there are no issues whatsoever that need addressing. This was a smart purchase.
I'd like to give kudos to the dealer I eventually bought the car from, Auto Nation Honda of Costa Mesa (in Orange County next to Los Angeles.) I'd been emailing back and forth with them, and actually got my best price after the Labor Day sale. They were friendly, no pressure, no change-ups once I got to the delareship, even Ernie the finance guy was a sweetheart! Everything went quick, and smooth, very painless. I know, that's NOT the typical car dealer experience!
