2011 Honda Odyssey: Great Air Conditioning

September 27, 2011


Yesterday I mentioned that the Oldham family and our long-term Odyssey spent the weekend in the desert oasis of La Quinta, CA. What I didn't mention is that La Quinta is actually just east of the surface of the sun. Summer is long gone, but it's still 110 degrees in the Coachella Valley.

The good news is that the Honda's air conditioning had no trouble keeping up. Even if we climbed in the big van after it heat soaked in the sun for hours, it cooled itself off quickly.

I remember when Honda's air conditioning systems had trouble cooling you off on a winter day. No more.
