2006 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This van has been absolutely fantastic. I have never had mechanical problems of any kind. The power sliding doors have worked consistently and I've never had a problem. Couldn't say that about the Ford Minivan I owned previously. Great ride, excellent mileage - average mid to high 20's. Very reliable. I bought it new in 2006 and I can see driving it for another 5 or 6 years. Design and quality is great. I highly recommend this vehicle.

2006 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We're a one vehicle family, 2 kids, and dog. Leased new in '06 after handing in returning our '02 Civic. The need for a reliable, spacious vehicle was obvious. We went with the LX because we didn't need the bells and whistles. We've made good use of the space - golf clubs, hockey equip, and bikes, and of course many trips to the Home Depot. Overall very pleased with performance, ride, reliability. As a daily driver, putting on 50 plus km a day, it's been good. Snow tires on it for the long winters, and it rides well. Breaks needed work much earlier than expected (45,000 km), but she's a heavy van (no civic). Been looking at 'used' vans too but, not impressed, we'll stick with what we got!


Best Features

Roominess; Comfort; Safety features; styling; Sound system is adequate; Lots of cup holders!!! Fit and finish thus far have been pretty solid.


Worst Features

Fix shimmy at 105 - 115 km/hr range; Better breaks; Better sliding door mechanism (have manual doors, but had to replace the upper hinge assembly - apparently kids 'slamming it' open bends the pin); Auto On Headlights (really, that's an option on the LX)

2006 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

base lx well equipped, comfortable ride, good handling, great for road trips, lots of storage space, strong and reasonably fuel efficient engine, no reliability issues yet... unless you need a rwd suv for towing, this is definitely a better "bang for the buck"


Best Features

comfort, ride, room, storage space


Worst Features

some higher end versions have run flat tires that are expensive to replace and wear out quickly

Review

We have owned this car for 3 yrs. Bought it new. Am a stay at home mom and have not driven it much but in 3 yrs. we have had the brake pads replaced once under warranty and now they are grinding AGAIN at 33,000 and the dealership wants us to pay saying a 25,000 mile repair is normal. We own another car and in 100,000 miles have never replaced the pads. BE FOREWARNED ABOUT THESE BRAKE PROBLEMS. I am now going to contact Corp. and see what response I get.

Review

I'm very happy with my van, due to health problems I haven't been able to drive it as much as I want. The MPG are pretty good 17-18 city & 26 Hwy. I've read some reviews that stated poor gas mileage. maybe they are driving at 90 on the Hwy, I'm driving 70-75. The worst Hwy MPG I've gotten was 24 MPG. Am I happy I bough it ? Yes !!


Best Features

I really like the way the transmission shifts, yeah I know it sounds weird, but I do.


Worst Features

Somehow raise that radiator shield which can sometimes cause problems
