Best driving vehicle we have ever owned. Has a very sporty/stiff suspension which is fun to drive. Can't believe it's a minivan! Very quite ride. Interior is laid out very well. We love the interior quality and ergonomics. Ride and interior quality made the difference to us versus other mini vans available. Personally, I like the exterior styling, it's sportier, differentiating, and better looking (chrome edging)than the Ody's main competitor. We opted for Nav. only EXL. We have an ipad and that keeps the kids busy on long trips. Also, DVD can be added after the fact by dealer if we change our mind on this. Eco cylinder limiting and monitoring is neat and helps us conserve fuel.
The sporty ride, the sporty ride, the sporty ride! Then the interior layout and quality (cool instrumentation) along with the technology of voice functions (nav, radio, blue tooth phone, etc.) I am sure the beverage cooler will come in handy on long trips. Ease of third row seat folding.
