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


Review

Wish I could like the car but I'm tired of the repeated visits to the dealer to fix what really is a faulty engineering issue. VCM creates more problems than it solves. I wish that wasn't so. The Honda techs are saying this and, almost, apologetic about it. I wish that I could do my part to cut down on fuel consumption to be environmentally friendly. The problem is, the poorly implemented VCM causes me to go through 5 quarts of oil every 5,000 miles. I've had to replace cylinder rings and motor mounts and things are still not right. There's a TSB for this that's supposed to cover 2008+ vehicles but, for whatever reason, it doesn't apply to mine. So I'm stuck with the options to sell it (and pass this nightmare on to someone else who will develop the same feelings about Honda as I) or to remain on a first name basis with the Service Manager.

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.
