2008 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan w/Nav, Rear Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
Review
We lost our 2007 Caravan Special Edition to another driver who didn't understand the word "stop". While I've always felt Chrysler wins hands-down in the innovation department, I was leery of purchasing a 2008 model due to this being the first year of a major overhaul. The 2008 also lost some aesthetic points that it once had over the Ody (IMHO). The Ody wins hands-down in interior quality. The leather is nicer, the seats are more comfortable, and the fit and finish is better (but still not perfect). The Ody is still breaking in, so too early to tell on mileage. Acceleration is smooth. The vehicle is larger inside and out compared to Chrysler, so watch your parking/garage issues.
Favorite Features
NAV is a nice toy. The screen's tie-in to the radio and DVD player is very nice. Handling is much nicer than Caravan, although ride suffers a bit.
Suggested Improvements
USB or even 802.11 connectivity for NAV to sync with Outlook. Add diagnostics and other info to NAV screen. Fog lights and power tailgate should be standard with this trim - an extra $8k for the Touring model is asinine. Needs more 12v power outlets. A hybrid version would be the winner.
