My 2007 Odyssey is my third after an excellent 1995 and a very good 2003. The 2007 is a pig on fuel: 12 mpg in town, 24 on the highway. Never have I been able to break the 30 mpg barrier, no matter how hard I try. The interior materials are so soft they mar just by looking at them. I doesn't start like a new vehicle. The climate control system never seems to work right. The two previous Odysseys would maintain a comfortable 22 degrees, winter or summer. I am constantly adjusting the 07 to try and get something resembling comfort. The windows sporadically roll down as the spirit spirit moves... Since Ford isn't building their own van, has Honda out-sourced the Odyssey to them?
Ride, handling and seating position. Convenient storage of back seat. A very comfortable riding vehicle once you get past all of the annoyances that were absent in the older Odysseys.
Fuel Consumption. Interior materials. Climate control. Eliminate idiotic features that automatically lock doors and roll down windows.
