2011 Honda Odyssey: Liftgate is High Enough
April 19, 2011
Some time ago I said the liftgate on our 2011 Toyota Sienna was too low. At 5 feet, 11 inches the Sienna creased my forehead numerous times during one week's worth of normal use. It only seemed fair to subject our 2011 Honda Odyssey to the same scrutiny.
I've been in the Honda for a week now, using it similarly and haven't struck the hatch to my cranium once. I thought that maybe I was one of those smart-types who learns his lesson from repeated brutal head trauma. Then I realized the Odyssey, at a shade over 6 feet, has a higher liftgate opening. It isn't much difference, but in my case it's just enough.
