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


Review

We really like the car, its roomy, drives nice, cool design, lots of cup holders, but this car is always under repair which is really annoying. Since we had it (4 yrs now) we've had to: 1) Run flats wore out at (and every ) 20K. ($1500 each time) 2) automatic doors had spring popped out (3) rear engine mount had to be replaced ($800) 4) alignment was off ($100) 5) DVD system sometimes shows blank screen (we had to eject it several times for it to work. This is the most amount of maintenance I had to do for a car under 60K miles.


Favorite Features

Roomy, drives nice, lots of cup holders


Suggested Improvements

Suggestion for Honda to build a car that does not involve so much maintenance. Don't make parts that break easily (especially things that you don't expect to EVER break, like engine mounts).

Review

I really had not had many complaints about my Honda Odyssey touring. Although last year we took it in and were told that the engine mounts had to be replaced. Walked out $1700 later. Never had to replace that part on any other car I had now with only 27k on my mileage I have to get new tires. Not bad if they were regular tires but no we were sold the run flats. No one told us that each tire would cost $350 plus labor. $1600 later and that does not include the part inside the tire that needs to be replaced after 4 yrs so each one is another $200. We are looking at $2300 to replace my tires. So mad. We are now looking at selling this van pretty quickly.


Suggested Improvements

Now they have got rid of run flats but I think they need to compensate the people that paid $600 extra to have that feature.

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


Review

This was my first Honda purchase and will be my last. I spent an extra $7000 over the Town and Country, expecting to get better quality, but was disappointed at the nagging problems: too much interior noise, poor quality sound system, funny sounds at low engine speeds, poor braking distance, sliding door problems, moulding strips came loose, overrated gas mileage (I never got more 18 mpg). BEWARE, this car handles terribly in wet/cold conditions. My wife can't make it up the driveway. Worst of all, Michelin PAX tires cost $350 each to replace and only last 25,000 mi. This car is too expensive to maintain down the road and cost too much up front for the Honda name. I traded for the Enclave


Suggested Improvements

Overestimated gas mileage, improve the brakes, get rid of the PAX tires fiasco, improve handling, reduce interior noise

Review

This was our third Honda Odyssey but most disappointing. Our favorite model was 2004. Have had brakes checked 3 times, rotors turned and replaced, and brake pads replaced twice. Run-flat tires are incredibly expensive and wear fast. Price of tires and installation - what a shock! On third set after 80,000 miles. Also, after a few months, the seal around the front windshield began to whistle loudly at high speeds, and it continues to get worse with age. The biggest improvement has been with the engine and fuel economy. The sound system, which would have been quite fancy in 1985, has been a real dud for the price. This will probably be our last Odyssey.


Favorite Features

Improved fuel economy Interior space


Suggested Improvements

No more run-flat tires. Better seals around windshield and doors. Better and more reliable brakes. Using a rear windshield wiper size that can be purchased in an auto parts store (Who thought of that piece of work?).

Review

I absolutely love the ease of use on the Odyssey. The electronic doors opening for my kids, the lazy susan for storage. The DVD rear entertainment system is a must for kids. There is lots of room for storage and the drive is very smooth.


Favorite Features

The DVD system, automatic sliding side doors and the automatic rear door. I also like the sunshade visors, the numerous cup holders, the mirror to watch the kids and the storage space.


Suggested Improvements

I think they should make the sunshade visors be electric. They can be difficult to do for a short person.

Review

I am a certified enemy of the mini-van and am embarrassed that I like this vehicle so much.


Favorite Features

Performance, looks, DVD system, and XM channel 150 (comedy) when kids are not in vehicle. 151 when they are!


Suggested Improvements

All wheel drive is an option this heavy vehicle needs. And it would be nice to be able to hit the lock button while the doors are closing and hve them lock upon doing so rather than standing around waiting.

Review

At 25,000 miles my Michelin pax tires will need replacement in 5-7000 miles. Cost to replace is $225/tire. Cannot subtitute other rims or tires. Keep this in mind when puchasing the touring model.


Suggested Improvements

Honda should get out of bed with Michelin and put on standard type tires where price competion exists.

Review

This is a terrific vehicle! I was a previous owner of a Quest and wish I had started with the Odyssey. Kid friendly, plenty of cup holders & storage. Easy to fold seats, even my 5 yr. old can do it. The DVD has a crisp, clean screen. This vehicle is so quiet during city & highway driving. Easy to read dash & user friendly climate control. So much more superior to the Quest. It gets great gas mileage. I can't say enough good things about this van!


Favorite Features

The extra plugs for the rear entertainment system, the extra headphone jacks and the ability to use the 12V plug for other electronic games that the kids bring during long road trips.


Suggested Improvements

Relocate the rear hatch automatic door button. When you have your hands full it is hard to reach while the hatch is open. I am also very short & have to stand on my toes to reach it. My children often want to close it and cannot reach it either.

Review

This is the best vehicle I have ever owned! I feel like for the first time I am in a vehicle that was truly researched for what a driver would want - I can't find anything I do not like about the van. I wish I hadn't gotten one sooner.


Favorite Features

DVD, XM, power tailgate, windows in sliding doors, sunroof, info center, compartments, place to put my purse!


Suggested Improvements

Only one - that my phone could charge while the car is off

Review

Test drove this vehicle and loved it. My wife now takes it more often than our Acura TL sedan. No problems with it since we bought it in October.


Favorite Features

Power doors, comfort, DVD player for the kids, dashboard functions


Suggested Improvements

DVD player to play MP3s, better gas mileage, longer warranty, smaller key and key remote (very big for a man to carry in his pocket)
