I agree with you wholeheartedly that the new Odyssey's design is absolutely beautiful. I too, was enthralled by it enough to change our 2001 Odyssey AND our 2010 Odyssey in for two of the 2011 model cars. I don't have to defend Honda Odyssey's reputation; however, I want to make a few comments: The ECO feature will go on and off the entire time you are driving because the engine fuel consumption depends on the driver's demands upon the engine. The engine is turning on and off valves to save fuel. If you avoid sudden acceleration, your engine will perform at better (meaning less) fuel consumption levels. The "Variable Cylinder Management" (ECO mode) does not affect the motion of the car in any way or something is seriously defective and YOUR CAR IS UNDER WARRANTY (an important point when you mention that you "can move the dashboard with your hand"). I am a 6'5" man at 280 lbs. I have yet to hit my head or find entering or exiting the vehicle troublesome. Nor have I ever hit my head on the rear door. Can you share pictures on www.odyclub.com of the "cheap plastic" that has "chipped" -- I have to see it. I own two 2011 Odysseys and am shocked at this. Where and how could you chip the plastics? I can't imagine what you would have to do to inflict such damage! I am surprised by the comments and the comparison to the competition. Yet you need to make sure that whatever defect in workmanship you discover in your car is taken care of by your dealer. You paid a premium for that car; demand that (under warranty) it show the quality for which the manufacturer is renowned.Report it
