This is our 2nd Odyssey, having previously purchased one of the original '99's. Both vehicles have been wonderful. Very comfortable and roomy. Lots of cupholders and storage cubbies. We owned 2 Windstars before the Odysseys. While the Windstars were good vans, they couldn't compare in reliability and convenience features (magic seat) and especially resale value. A few days ago I would have said there isn't a better minivan than mine anywhere. But...that was before I drove the 2005. Wow!!!! It just keeps getting better!
Magic seat, cupholders everywhere, lots of legroom for the driver.
The only problem...I wish the interior lights would stay on a little longer when the doors are open so you don't have to actually turn the light switch on and risk forgetting to turn them back off again. A delay of 5 minutes probably wouldn't have much impact on overall battery life.
