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

Review

Just took a 3500 mile trip in my parents' Odyssey and couldn't believe how many flaws a so-called world-class auto builder like Honda allowed this vehicle to leave the design room with. Let's see: automatic doors stick in the open position, front struts totally shot at 70,000 miles, keyless remote buttons so sensitive that bending over with the remote in your pocket activates the automatic doors, no thermometer, no compass (WHAT?!!!), knuckles hit the dome light button when you shift into drive, impossible to downshift on descending grades, incredibly uncomfortable driving position (6- footer here). It's a good thing Honda's customers are so loyal. If they drove the competition, they'd leave.

I suffer NONE of these problems on my EX with 130000. Two problems cited simply do not exist. There is an external thermometer--just press the trip meter button to see it. For internal temperature, you set temp for driver and passenger separately and it automatically maintains it. Downshifting to 3rd is a press of a button on shifter. Moving shift lever shifts to 2 or 1. Went down Mt. Washington with mine in 1st and rarely needed the brakes.
