2011 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)

Review

I have been driving an Ody since 1999, the 2011 model was my 5th one. I purchased a 2011 touring elite based on the past 4 cars, assuming that it would be another set of typical Honda improvements. That is largely the case, almost everything in the car has gotten better. Unfortunately, the American design team removed the typical Japanese drive characteristics. The steering is awful. The car is all over the road especially on the highway. The steering wheel can be moved 3 inches before the car responds with a much delayed "wobble" that rolls the body. The brakes are similarly unresponsive and less precise than prior models, although hard braking is better. "Respect The Van" no more.

Best Features

nav system is much improved and easier to work, very similar to BMW I-drive, but better.

Worst Features

Get rid of the mushy drive characteristics. If you look at the Nav while on the highway you are much more likely to need to adjust the steering when you look back at the road compared to prior models. Honda has always had a very precise drive feel that is completely lost in this car.
