2006 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan w/Entertainment, Navigation (3.5L 6cyl 5A)

Review

We decided to try Honda after hearing for years about the wonderful driving experience and quality. That has not been our experience. The transmission in our 2006 Odyssey needs to be replaced at slightly more than 60,000 miles. Luckily, we purchased the extended warranty for this vehicle! Other complaints: the road noise is too loud, the steering pump is loud, the CD player has never worked properly, and the handling on wet or snow covered roads is absolutely horrible. Some features that we have enjoyed include the entertainment system, fold down rear seats, and maintenance minder system.

Favorite Features

Entertainment system, XM radio, interior quality, maintenance minder system

Suggested Improvements

If the steering pump is loud, there is a technical service bulletin for it. I'm in Canada but used that as a guide to resolve the problem. I replaced the pump and reservoir. Hope this helps. Also try winter tires like Bridgestone Blizzak WS60 tires they perform obviously better than any all season tire for any car!
