This is our third Odyssey. My wife is the primary driver. For a while she inherited my Escalade and she was happy to give it back and get another Odyssey. The Touring model has just about everything you need in a car. It's great for shopping, travel carrying the kids and for her and her friends to go out on their various expeditions. It's quiet on the road and has enough height to see around traffic. On long trips its comfortable and nice to know that if you've got to haul people or gear it's ready to do the job. Over three models never a problem and build quality is always flawless.
Nav. system; Bluetooth capability; flexibility with the interior; power lift gate; quality and reliability.
Why not upgrade the engine to the 3.7 L version in the Acura MDX? While power is good, another 50 hp or so would be welcome.
