I drive a 2006 Odyssey Touring mini-van, also. I traded a Lincoln Town Car in on it. The Town Car has arguably the smoothest ride on the road, and my Odyssey is almost as good. I just get a little more tire/hiway noise than with the Town Car. Could NEVER say that this Odyssey handles like a "tank". It's turning radius is LESS than my smaller, 2000 Mercury Villager. My only complaints are the under EPA estimated gas mileage (20/28) of 15/22; and poor rear visibility. The back-up camera distorts, & can only rely on it to see obstacles immediately behind. I simply LOVE my Ody. I, too, am retired, and like how the mini-van seats are "butt high". No climbing in or out of the vehicle. Funny about the batteries. I had a brother-in-law who had faulty fuel gauges on his last FIVE automobiles. When he passed away, his son inherited his Massey-Ferguson tractor andfound that the fuel indicator was not working on it either. Go figure.Report it
