2005 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This is the best vehicle I've owned. It's also one of the most comfortable vehicles I've ever driven. The ride is very comfortable and quiet. Handling is excellent. I always feel in complete control in any type of weather in my Odyssey. Contrary to some of the reviews I'm seeing for this year of Odyssey; I don't really have problems with it. The only problem I had was a power steering reservoir that needed to be replaced ($125ish). At one point there was an odd vibration between 25 and 30 mph. Many people replaced the transmission or torque converter with no success. I just had the transmission fluid changed (scheduled maintenance) with Mobile 1 full synthetic. Problem solved!


Favorite Features

Soft leather Comfortable seats Great acceleration Stability control, traction control Bright gauges Nice speakers Homelink Excellent build quality Handling Dual power outlets in front Lazy susan storage and other storage spaces Seating configuration Dual zone climate control Window shades


Suggested Improvements

There should be a button in the back of the vehicle that opens and closes the power sliding doors instead of having to pull the handle to activate them. For a vehicle at this price point and with so many features, I'm not sure how there isn't automatic headlights or HID lights.

2005 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I bought this van about 4 years ago as a CPO. It has been a great family car for us. No problems really except for the expected wear and tear of certain parts (nothing unusual). This van is very comfortable especially on long drives. The Econo feature is great when you are cruising. Captains chair provide adequate support. Have decent leg room even for the 3rd row seat. I'm 6 foot tall and surprising able to fit adequately in the third row without difficulty. Highly recommended vehicle

2005 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

While not exciting, this vehicle has given us dependable, efficient service for 5 years. Adequate power, comfortable ride and cavernous interior for lugging "stuff". Great for our two large dogs who travel with us. Highly recommended.


Favorite Features

Efficient, comfortable interior, more than enough power, trouble free operation.


Suggested Improvements

Make the middle row of seats fold into floor.
