The strong points of this van are
capable handling and excellent braking.
From there on it's all down hill. The
ride is firm bordering on harsh. Build
quality is so so.
The middle seats are easy to form into
a bench seat or to remove. Good design
and comfortable seats.
There is alot of road noise transfer
into the interior at highway speeds.
Also plenty of tire sound slapping
uneven pavement joints.
A/C system is poor in comparison to my
old Toyota Sienna. The air intake for
recycling the cooled air is poorly
placed next to the drivers right leg.
Wonderful feeling if you have arthritic
Would not buy another one.
Excellent brakes and a good navigation
Better build quality and materials.
Give option of interior color. Refine
the ride to make the vehicle more road
It's been almost a year now since I
purchased my Honda Odyssey. I really
have enjoyed this vehicle. It's great
being a single mom. I have the room to
haul around things for my daughter.
Take her friends to the mall, etc.
It's a very comfortable ride!
I think my favorite feature is the
disappearing third seat. I love how it
completely folds down or it turns
around so we can have a place to sit to
watch fireworks on the 4th of July!
And it's easy for me to do!
My biggest complaint with this vehicle
is the leg room. I'm a very tall
female and the seat just doesn't go
back far enough for me. I would be
more comfortable if it was a little
Our 2003 Odyssey EX-L RES has thus far
been exactly what we expected in all
aspects. It spacious, quiet, handles
great, and is packed with the features
we desire. The Honda reputation for
quality, which we have come to expect,
shines through in this vehicle. Over
the years we have owned 5 Honda's,
including this minivan, and we
continue to be fans of Honda
vehicles. Plus: The kids love the DVD
DVD system, spacious trunk area, good
crash test scores, powerful engine,
Include Roadside assistance in the
standard warranty...It's a great
vehicle, but not impervious to
problems. For a family vehicle I want
every avenue of safety and assurance
of support when a problem occurs. A
sunroof option and a better selection
of exterior colors would be nice too.
