Purchased new when Mercury Villager died. Needed room for the kids and for trips. Looked at SUV's but the Odyssey has better gas mileage. This has been, and still is, a fantastic vehicle. No problems at all. Have only replaced the normal "wearable" parts (wipers, brake pads, filters, tires, etc.).
Interior room, folding rear seat, visability, sliding doors on each side, reliability, quality,
A/C filter could be more accessable. Front and rear ends are hard to see when parking, esp. when parallel parking.
