I'm picking-up my new Odyssey tomorrow
By Honda fan on
2005 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I bought the van with the idea that in retirement I could haul stuff, and that with the navi, travels would be easier and more fun. All that is spot-on and more. I love the way it rides & handles even in NC mountains. It has plenty of power to merge on I-85 or pass on NC158. We consolidated 2 houses into 1 at retirement, and the van more than paid for itself in hauling our belongings to the new house, the dump, the Goodwill, etc. I also feel very safe driving it, with all of the safety features built-in. I bought it thinking I would find it useful for travel (which it is), but I really just enjoy driving it every day, and that surprised me! Tomorrow I pick-up my new 2009, the 05 to my son.
XM radio, navigation, good smooth ride, powerful acceleration, captains chairs first 2 rows, easy fold-down 3rd row, great gas mileage on hwy (26-28 MPG).
Move clock closer to driver, outside mirrors have blind spots,
