I purchased my 04' Odyssey over the
Sienna an although the vehicle rides
nice I am very upset over the very low
gas mileage I am getting (12-16 mpg).
I have a 2003 Ford F150 Supercrew with
the V8 that is getting much better
mileage than this car. The dealer and
Honda America both say that 12-16 mpg
is acceptible and within the expected
range!! Unbelievable - why do they put
19/24 on the window sticker then?
With gas pushing $2/gallon I would
recommend a different vehicle for this
Drive is smooth and car like rather
than like a van.
Tell the truth about the fuel economy
or improve it!!!
This is the first time I bought an
Honda and I have to admit that the car
has exceeded all my expectations. It
looks and handles superbly.
Suspension and riding comfort are
outstanding too. I previously owned a
Ford and had to put it on sale because
of lower back problems (Ford seating
comfort REALLY sucks!)
On long trips getting out of my Ford
felt like a guy hit my lower back with
a baseball bat. But getting out of my
Honda on same long trips feels like
waking up from a long nap.
If you are about to buy an Ody don't
buy the LX version (cloth seats).
Spend the extra bucks and buy leather,
your back will appreciate!!
