Purchased Ody EX on Dec, 14th and took a 600 mile trip to Kansas City with the family. There was some pronounced noise on very course pavement, but overall much quieter than our 1999 Honda Ody. The overall gas mileage was 22 mpg..not bad with headwinds to and from our destinations. The engine has lots of power during acceleration onto freeways or in town. Cornering is great even on tight turns. Seats are firm but comfortable. Instruments are well positioned. Really like the small light that shines on the tray between the front passenger/driver seats as it allows you to see your cell phone or whatever in on the tray without turning on the reading/dome lights. Kids love the window shades.
Dual zone climate control is great when you are driving and the sun is glaring on one side of the car while the shade is on the opposite side. The 8 person optional seat is a big plus when additional passengers load up. Display gauges are well lit. Dual sliding doors make errands a breeze with kids
Fuel gauge is a bit hard to read when the steering wheel is in the normal position.
