Odyssey's a Disappointment
By kas on
2005 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
I was so excited to purchase the redesign model of this van after owning an Accord I loved. We had to move to a minivan after the birth of our 3rd child. We've had the power steering pump replaced 5 times, and we're preparing to put on the 3rd set of tires (@ 67K miles)! We've been told only 1 tire is made for the van-- Michelin --cha ching! I love the overall look of the van inside and out, enjoy the interior features and layout, and love to drive it despite all the aggravation. I must say, though, the van was a let down in general. I was really hoping for better fuel economy with the Honda reputation. I average 18 mpg around town.
exterior appearance, interior features and layout
address power steering pump issues, definitely find longer lasting tires compatible with vehicle
