2011 Honda Odyssey: Fragile Plastics

March 01, 2011


Yesterday I sang the Odyssey's praises. And I stand behind those words. But this morning I was cleaning out the van so it was tidy for the next editor and I found these scratches on the back of the center console and on the side plastic of the cargo area.

Considering the van only has 1,600 miles on it, I find this disappointing.


I know my kids can be rough on a car, but these plastics, especially in a vehicle built to haul rug rats, should be more resistant to this kind of damage.
