2005 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Great van! We bought the EX-L. My wife vowed never to drive a van, but after taking this one for a test drive she was sold. We test drove the Toyota, but the overall options, handling (doesn't feel like a minivan), and interior design fitted our needs the best (two kids). We replaced the power steering pump after 65k miles, but luckily we bought the extended warranty). Great van to travel in or just around town.
Powerful V-6, electronic brake assist, dual power sliding doors, and quiet ride even after 72k miles!
Brakes work fine, but the overall braking system might need to be beefed up. Rear brakes whine when turning slowly and pressing the brakes lightly (odd).
