2008 Honda Odyssey Touring 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Vehicle is average with utility in mind. This could be an excellent basic transportation were it not for tire and drivetrain vibration, road noise and Honda's denial and refusal to fix problems. This is not a luxury vehicle even though it is priced as one. Not refined, just good basic transportation. There are better choices.


Best Features

space,Nav and bumper sensors.


Worst Features

Better quality leather and more selections on power seats. Better dash materials and sound insulations for quieter interior.

2008 Honda Odyssey Touring 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Horrible interior and exterior fit & finish, rattles and hard wind noise. Been in the shop for 3 times (replace misaligned top & bottom glove box, streaks on passenger window, and rattles from both front sash trims), bought for steep discount and good experience w/ my current 2002 Odyssey, poor fuel economy, dangerously soft brakes, so-so road handling, cheap plastic interior, poor front ventilation controls for rear, uncomfortable bucket seats (too short for my thigh) poor paint jobs, and etc. Been driving hondas since 1990 (1990 civic, 2000 accord, 2002 oddysey), this will be my last.


Best Features

navigation, RES, deep discount, auto tailgate


Worst Features

Dangerously soft brakes!!! Far better fit & finish and interior plastic materials for MSRP >40000, rattles from everywhere, bumpy ride and vibrations from tires while driving at low speed, regain the reputation of "being most reliable car" that I was accustomed to driving. I miss my old Hondas.

2008 Honda Odyssey Touring 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

It's a nice van and gets decent mileage. Ride is a bit harsh and road and wind noise prevalent. Needs better insulation and laminate windows like the Buick Enclave and Chrysler Aspen, really does make a difference!


Best Features

8 passenger, auto slide doors, power hatch, nav system, xm radio, rear entertainment system and gas mileage.


Worst Features

Laminate the Windows and add some insulation. Also get rid of the rattles and wind noise and add a power second row seat for kids to access 3rd row.

2008 Honda Odyssey Touring 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Compared Enclave, Sienna and Odyssey. Enclave was very nice in ride, handling and quietness. The Honda had a nicer price with the rebate. It's a good people mover and the navigation system is very nice. The rear entrainment system is very nice but not intuitive really need to read the instruction manual. Using 0-20w Mobil One and averaging 18.7 around town with up to 30 mpg on the highway.


Best Features

Mileage, people moving and cargo capacity.


Worst Features

Get rid of wind noise in front passenger window, suspect it's an exterior molding on B pillar that is loose. Leather seats could be more comfortable Tahoe leather seats were very comfortable. Also air conditioned seats would be nice. Power second row seats for ease of entry. Rid the car of rattles.

2008 Honda Odyssey Touring 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

The Odyssey is fantastic. We put 50,000 miles on our '06 without any problems. We just traded it in on an '08 Touring. Paid 33186 which is 3700 below invoice. Very happy with this deal. The older one was an EX-L with Nav and DVD. The addition of movable pedals, Bluetooth, memory seats, and power rear liftgate are nice. The fog lights are a nice addition, too. This is an excellent vehicle and drives very nicely; the Sienna was just too soft a ride.


Best Features

Navigation, DVD, movable pedals, power lift gate, memory seats, auto climate control


Worst Features

HID head lights, ipod integration
