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


Review

We bought ours new at the end of 2005. It now has 240,000 miles on it. This vehicle was always serviced at the dealership. the only things that have gone wrong on it were a minor issue with the AC, and a high pressure line on the power steering. The power steering was sometimes noisy, but it has never not worked. The only issue I have with the van is that if you do not rotate the tires at least every 5000 miles, they will become noisy. Other than that, you really cannot buy a better minivan. Despite the high miles, I have complete confidence int he van. We just drove it over 1000 miles for vacation, and it turned 240,000 miles on that trip. Last summer with over 220,000 miles we went over 13 hrs from home, into Canada. Now being down to only 1 kid at home, we will sell it. We just bought a Pilot to replace the van.

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


Review

Bought this van in July 2006. We had some issues with this van, front wheel bearings, power steering pump, twice, all repaired or replaced by Honda. We now have 112,000 on this van and it runs like new. I just replaced the timing belt, and plan on using it another hundred thousand mies. This has been the very best vehicle I have ever owned


Best Features

Power doors, seats and it is truly fun to drive

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


Review

I bought a 2006 Odyssey new. I'm retired and drive less than 7,000 miles a year. In less than 2 years, the battery died. Two years later, the 2nd battery died. Today, two years later, the battery died. To date, I've spent $450 on batteries. The rear brakes wore out at only 40,000 miles. The brake sensor system did not work.
Discs, pads and rotors had to be replaced. Eats batteries & tires. Master cylinder and power steering failed. Soft brake pedal; dealer can fix. Lousy gas mileage: 15 city, 20 interstate. Handles like a tank. Too many blind spots. Auto-liding door problems.


Best Features

Front bucket seats are comfortable


Worst Features

Start over and build a totally new, reliable minivan that handles like a car instead of a tank; fix electrical system so batteries last for four years instead of two. Change brakes so they last much longer (at least 80K on rear, 60 on front). Do whatever is necessary so van gets more than 40,000 miles on tires. Fix the electrical system and reduce the expense of maintenance. My Porsche costs less in maintenance.

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


Review

We bought this car used in February 2011 with 71,000 miles in it and love it. We like to sliding doors. There is a lot of cargo space. Plenty of leg room in the 3rd row. The only problem we've had is a new starter and the power-steering pump recall. We now have 88,000 miles on it and plan to drive it till it drops.

Everything!


Worst Features

Nothing
