2010 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

At 7,000-8,000 miles, the engine light came on & the car ran so rough my wife was afraid to drive it 1/2 mile to our house. After a tow to the dealer, they can't figure out where the oil is going, but replace the oil and the spark plugs (which are fouled). After several 1,000 mile checks on the oil consumption, I am told today that HONDA USA finds the disappearance of one quart of oil per 1,000 miles to be Acceptable, and there is no repair to be made. But they are researching it and will get back to me. Um, yeah, right. I had a 1987 Honda Civic that gave me over 120,000 miles before it was wrecked by another driver. Quite a letdown to know Honda quality has sunk so low today.


Best Features

Obviously, it can be used to clean up the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, due to it's ability to make a quart of oil disappear without a trace every 1,000 miles. BP should invest in a fleet of these vehicles.


Worst Features

Fix the oil consumption defect in the vehicle.

2010 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan w/Rear Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I'm a 37 yo mom of 3 and a TOTAL car snob. I've only driven BMW's since I got my license but after 3 kids, knew I needed the minivan. The sliding doors sold me as we have a tight garage and I figured not yelling to the kids to be careful of my husbands car was one less argument to have not to mention the reduction in chances to trap fingers. I Love my car and intend to drive it for the next 10 years, at which point I will go back to my BMW (hopefully a 7-series). For now, it's the way to go.


Best Features

sliding doors, rear entertainment, nav., removable seat in second row.


Worst Features

the only thing missing is a MP3 jack for my ipod/iphone

2010 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan w/Rear Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

After having had a 2005 Odyssey, followed by a 2007 Odyssey, we decided to try a Ford Expedition EL. While the Expedition was a nice vehicle, it was not as functional as the Odyssey had been. With 4 young children, the Odyssey was hands down the better vehicle for us. We learned by experience that the big SUVs aren't always better. We waited to see photos of the 2011 Odyssey but were not impressed. Since we were familiar with the 2010 Odyssey style and features, we decided to take advantage of the last model year reliability and good incentives. Are we ever excited to be back in our Odyssey! It's an EX-L with RES, dark cherry pearl color. We feel like we are back at home!


Best Features

Power sliding doors, power lift gate, DVD system, rear window shades, ability to configure rear seating, road handling, and the list goes on.


Worst Features

Honda could stand to work on road noise and should also add AWD.

2010 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I just purchased this vehicle yesterday, but I have driven similar Odysseys owned by friends and family. The vehicle is probably the best overall of all minivans in the market, but if you start picking out individual characteristics, you will notice that it's not the best at everything. It's like jack of all, master of none; in my opinion it may not earn number 1 spot in many of the aspects, but earns a second spot in most of them, and the first in a few.


Best Features

Great head room to give a feeling of a lots of space, better use of space. 3rd Seats fold easily. 2nd row, center removable, and both chairs can be moved together, lots of storage bins including 2nd row floor, good sporty feel when driving. Most comfortable seats.


Worst Features

Combine key and the fob, improve fuel economy, combine a few storage bins to make a fewer but bigger bins, provide non-skid surface in the drop-down center tray for cell-phone, etc, needs better brakes, dated dash lay-out, speed sensitive wipers and volume, reduce road noise, revise color choice.

Fix the transmission. Until that, avoid Honda like the plague.
