I have had 4 Accords prior to buying
the Odyssey. This is an amazing van.
Its safe, comfortable, fun to drive,
and has Honda's thoughtfulness in
every detail. I was a little bit
disappointed in the mileage at first,
but it has improved as the van has
broken in. I drive between 25-30k per
year and this is by far the most
comfortable vehcile I've ever owned.
Dual power sliding doors (hands full
of groceries in the frigid Minnesota
winter has made this an AWESOME
The parking brake is a little quirky
sometimes, especially when its cold
out. Possibly change it to a hand
brake on the floor?
2004 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan w/Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Been the owner of a 1990 Caravan for 13 years, and
have poured a ton of $$ into it over the years. Tried
to avoid a car payment, but this van is soooooo
worth it! We've owned a Civic, a Prelude, have an
Accord and now the Odyssey the Honda product is
just amazing. The drive, the safety and reliability
you just can't find in many makes. I'll have this for
at least 'til the kids go off to college (15 years) and
have no doubts it will still be a great van. And
Auburn Honda is the most amazing dealership too!
Well worth the drive.
The handling for sure, it's better than most cars! So
fun to drive.The safety features, auto side doors,
the huge back storage with the grocery bag hooks,
it's roomy, and of course, the rear entertainment
system. It rocks!
Gas mileage is an issue, but with the overall
package it's a minor issue. It's a van and it has a
very powerful V-6 engine, it'll never get 30mpg
I made the jump from my Dodge Gr
Caravan Sport to the 04 Honda. I miss a
couple things,overhead display with
mileage, outside temperature. I love
the Leather seats and DVD player(even
though the DVD is hard to operate,
still learning). The dealer wanted me
to spend $1,200 more for the extended
warranty. I told him I'm buying the
Honda for the quality and durable that
you brag about. He still wanted me to
buy the warranty. Must be some good
commisions in selling that warranty.
All in all, I like the quality, the
smooth running engine and trainy
Leather Seats, DVD player and good hp.
Add the overhead readout display with
outside temperature and gas mileage.
Quiet down the road noise.
We bought the Odessey a couple of
months ago. I don't know why we've
waited so long? I love it!! It drives
like a car and the gas mileage is
pretty good, way better than the SUV we
where going to get. It fits my children
smooth ride, Great power, able to
change stations and adjust volume from
steering wheel,dual sliding doors.
I would like to see the middle row of
seats fold down like other minivans,
also the cig lighter is to low, another
power outlet closer to the front of the
vehicle, You hear to much outdoor
noise.I dont like that the gas light
dosent make a noise indicating its on.
