Needed to respond based on the reviews of some grouchy drivers not happy with their Odysseys. Have had my Odyssey since new. Very little trouble (125k mi). Good power when needed, but decent gas mileage (18-20) for a people mover. With 4 growing boys, have thought about moving up to a Yukon XL. Nothing against the GMC but there are a ton of used ones for sale. Not many used Odysseys. People are happy with them and keep them.
Good power. Decent fuel economy. Incredible use of space with folding/removable seats. 4x8 plywood or sheet rock - smart engineering! Reliable, low maintenance.
One sliding door has acted up a little, but seems to be fine now. Seat belts are very finicky, especially with car seats. Perhaps a safety bonus, but has tried my patience more than a few times.
