Bought new in Feb. 2011. It now has 12500 miles combined city and highway. This Honda shifts erratically and down shifts with a jerk. The transmission
seems to be searching for the correct gear way too much.
It has poor low end torque from a stop light and will occasionally not react when I step on the gas; scary when proceeding through a 4 way stop. I took it to the dealer 2 times but upon their road test said it was acting normally. Very noisy on interstate roads but quiet in town. I owned 2 Toyota Sienna's before; one had 157,000 miles and the other had 218,000 miles. No problems with either one. I went with Honda this time because Toyota was going through some quality control problems.
Comfortable seating and lots of room inside.
I am a delivery person and carry various sized packages with in a 500 mile radius and like the cargo space. Good visibility and quiet in town. Feels like a safe vehicle. I like putting several music cd's in memory and not having to carry them around.
Fix the transmission problem; i.e. low end torque, erratic shifting and intermittent no response when stepping on the gas. My old Sienna with over 200 k miles had lots of pick-up from a stop light. My daughter's 4 cylinder car has more pick-up than this Odyssey.
