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

Review

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.

Favorite Features

exterior appearance, interior features and layout

Suggested Improvements

address power steering pump issues, definitely find longer lasting tires compatible with vehicle

An EX like this reviewer says they have takes 235-65/16 tires. These are available from virtually every brand and at reasonable prices. The PAX tires are the problem on the fancier models.
