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

Review

Despite disliking minivans as a segment, we fell in love with the features and performance of the Ody Touring when we test drove one. But, we expected better reliability and engineering from Honda after we had had the care for a while. The PAX system is terrible. On our 3rd set with 45K miles. Harsh ride with vibrations. Honda gives run-around when investigating replacing with conventional tires. Gas mileage in our hilly area is 12-13MPG. On the highway, we can occasionally exceed 20MPG. Maintenance costs at dealer are higher than for our Nissan Pathfinder SUV with many more things going wrong over the first 4 years of ownership. Poor and outdated car navigation system.

Favorite Features

Audio Entertainment System, Rear Camera, Automatic Doors, Size and utility of vehicle, Interior comfort and appearance.

Suggested Improvements

Need certified and affordable De-PAX system. Mirrors should adjust with seat position settings. Bluetooth integration. Smarter car navigation software. Middle seat option in middle row at least for a child car seat.
