First, I want to point out that this is our very 1st minivan. We actually never thought we would own a minivan, until our friends bought an Odyssey 2 years ago. My wife and I are very pleased with our new Alabaster Silver Odyssey EX with grey cloth interior (we did a 3 year lease). We have had the Odyssey for 1 month and 1,000 miles so far. The Odyssey is very smooth, quiet, comfortable, surprisingly fun to drive, excellent interior, plenty of room, and gas mileage is 18MPG so far in city only. The front driver seat/passenger seat is very comfortable (grey cloth) and the middle captain chairs are fantastic too. Overall, the fit/finish is excellent and we truly enjoy our Odyssey!
Honda V6 engine power and smoothness (this model does NOT have the VCM that shuts down some of the cylinders), 5 speed auto works well in the Odyssey, gas mileage is better than a full size SUV, interior space and design, power sliding doors, ride quality so far is very smooth & quiet.
If this EX model included a power sunroof/moonroof, a power rear tailgate, and a little better radio/stereo system this model would be perfect!
