2009 Honda Odyssey Minivan Touring 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We bought this vehicle with a 2400 mile Disney World trip in mind. It practically drove itself there and had us convinced we were in a luxury sedan. Driving feel was sporty. Mileage was 23 mpg despite using a/c even while parked often and driving 65-80 mph. At home it's closer to 16 mpg. Our son runs to get in and has never mentioned the SUV (he used to love so much). My wife hated to buy a minivan but fights over who gets to drive it next.


Favorite Features

Versatile stereo/DVD system, reliable simple NAVI/Backup camera, strong A/C, comfortable seats, power doors, individual tire pressure status.


Suggested Improvements

Stereo has many ways to customize between front and rear but is neither intuitive nor superior sounding. Brakes feel too soft. Steering wheel should telescope 3 inches for long legs. Parking sensors should sense further than 1.5 feet (too close to risk damage).

2009 Honda Odyssey Minivan Touring 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I have had 3 other vans (all Chryslers) which had turned to go to all cars back in 2000. I decided to try one more time and I have been pleasantly surprised. The Ody is really comfortable, is solid as a rock, no rattles, quiet, and with the rear camera has great visibility. The disappearing 3rd row is great and the rear well when the seat is up provides an excellent space for loads of packages, suitcases etc. The mileage is at the top end of the EPA estimate and has exceeded the estimate on several recent trips, verified by actual calculation not just the trip computer. The leather seats are the most comfortable and supportive I've had in a vehicle under $50,000.


Favorite Features

Powers rear doors and liftgate, the fold flat 3rd row seats, the touch screen Nav beats my Toyota Nav in my Avalon hands down. The RES is great, my daughter and wife loved the wireless headphones on a recent trip. 8 passenger option is great while still providing Captains seats in 2nd row.


Suggested Improvements

Timed delay on headlights shutoff when in Auto mode would be great. Rain sensing wipers should be available on a $40,000 vehicle as should Laser cruise control.

2009 Honda Odyssey Minivan Touring 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We are on our third Odyssey and will likely go for a fourth. The 09 Touring has great features and functionality and keeps on getting better compared to our 04 and 05. Road noise is non-existent, fuel economy is 22 city and 28 highway. The radio is well placed and logical and the nav has everything including a compass. I paid 40% off of the $42K sticker due to dealer hunger. First time I have felt good about my purchase price.


Favorite Features

Bluetooth handsfree linkage to cellphone, auto on headlights, foglights, power rear tailgate.


Suggested Improvements

For the money, the nav system ought to have real-time traffic built in.

Review

First van and feel confident with picking the Honda. Drives great. Highway fuel economy higher then expected. Interior is quite spacious and the leather interior makes it feel more luxurious. Navi and RES is awesome! Sound system is ok but then again it is a minivan. Overall an excellent choice for families who require room.


Favorite Features

Navigation System, RES, Auto side doors and tailgate.


Suggested Improvements

Road Noise is higher then the Sienna. Suggest more sound deadening material.

2009 Honda Odyssey Minivan Touring 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Just traded in a 2007 MB CLS550 for a more practical vehicle... no regrets! This minivan is more useful and spacious than our MB GL450. Touring model wonderful in that no options apply (comes fully loaded); avoid the PAX system however - expensive to replace the tires. Sound system/DVD player/navigation system are user friendly. Cylinder deactivation of 3.5L V6 is great, enabling 26 mpg on highway. Amount of storage space (without folding 3rd row seats flat) is astonishing. I highly recommend this vehicle to anyone with kids and dogs (we have one child and 2 dogs).


Favorite Features

Sound system/navigation/DVD player; cylinder deactivation system; storage space -- EVERYTHING!


Suggested Improvements

Power folding 3rd row seats (although very easy to manually adjust).
