2011 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan w/Rear Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Extremely impressed so far. You have to check the inside out to believe it. They have really nailed this one. We traded a GMC Yukon SLT and it feels just as large.


Favorite Features

IPHONE / USB interphase from glove compartment to radio display. Large seating for 8.


Suggested Improvements

Rear end looks like an afterthought.

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


Review

So far so good. We traded our '02 Odyssey EX-L for the upgraded 2011. We wanted rear entertainment and navigation so we had to get the Touring model, which we enjoy. The fact that we couldn't get an EX- L with both of these features was a bit annoying, as you can get either or, but not both (Honda may be getting a little too high-brow). It drives great and handles well, and is noticeably quieter than our '02 version. The rear folding seats stow easily, so the fact that they are not powered is un-noticed. Overall is is a vastly improved version ('02 to '11 anyway) of a great mini-van.


Favorite Features

Quiet ride. Great interior functions and layout.


Suggested Improvements

Mid level van with navigation and rear entertainment system together.

2011 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan w/Rear Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

My choice was between a Mercedes R Class & a 2011 Odyssey. Interior features & sliding doors beat out the R Class, but after less than 2 weeks, I'm having doubts. There is no way to sugar coat the lack of quality in this vehicle. The tinted windows are streaked & hazy & cannot be cleaned. The carpet is ridiculously thin and poorly installed. The flimsy fabric on the seat backs will surely deteriorate & rip out. The plastic interior finishes do not connect & the exterior panels do not line up. There is a surprising amount of wind noise on the highway. I am worried how I'll feel in 11 months if this is how I feel in 11 days. I regret not buying the R Class.


Favorite Features

interior features and amenities


Suggested Improvements

The Odyssey severely lacks quality finishes! This is worse than any of the seven new vehicles we bought over the last twenty years! We are empty nesters, but there's no way this vehicle could stand the test of children riding in it daily. Buyer beware!

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


Review

We just purchased the 2011 Odyssey Touring on Oct 16. We decided earlier this year to go with the Odyssey over the Sienna (only 2 minivans to offer 8 passenger seating) primarily because of step back Toyota took when they made the 8th seat (center in center row) so much smaller than in the previous '10 model. We were very surprised that Toyota did not build on this feature but rather made it a lot worse. Since we have 6 kids we really need 8 real seats - which the '11 Odyssey has. Further, we need a minimum of 4 latch positions, the Sienna only has 3 (down from 4 in last model - another step back). The Odyssey has 5 latch positions. We also like the looks inside and outside. It looks sleek.


Favorite Features

Great seating for 8. Great dash layout. Tons of features-we have never had nav. or a DVD player before in a car so this is really cool to us, and our 5 year olds keep saying thanks for buying a van with a TV(what they think it is). We like the exterior looks, especially in touring trim. Very quiet.


Suggested Improvements

Allow the trans.to be shifted manually. Even our 05 Jetta has that feature, and it only cost about 1/2 the price. Why the funny head rest in 3rd row. Our 5 year olds sit back there and we have to raise it all the way up (can only be set all the way up or all the way down) so it wont hurt their back.

2011 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan w/Rear Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Picked up the vehicle two days ago; strikingly luxurious inside, and very nice, quiet ride. I had previously leased an '05 and an '08 and was surprised at how much more upscale the interior is on the '11. Lots of technology upgrades. I'm a little concerned that the change in the drivers foot-well will not be comfortable on long trips (left leg now not able to stretch fully). Also not happy about the roof rails no longer being present, as I actually used them on the previous models.


Favorite Features

Quiet, powerful ride and very luxurious interior


Suggested Improvements

I won't talk about the exterior styling: I'll "get used to it" !

Review

I had a preconceived idea that minivans were not for me. After driving the Odyssey it changed my mind so much that we purchased one that very day! It is far from the traditional minivan. The look is much more sporty and sleek. The inside is so luxurious and comfortable. The best part is the little touches that make it so handy for a family. Hooks are place in the front and middle to hang trash sacks. As a mom I really appreciate things like that. I absolutely love it.


Favorite Features

It drives just like a car!! The options are amazing! This one came with blue tooth, back up camera and CD download just to name a few.


Suggested Improvements

None that I can think of right now. It had everything I wanted and so much more that I had never thought of before.
