2011 Honda Odyssey: Rear Entertainment Still Worth It?
July 08, 2011
Our Honda Odyssey Touring comes standard with a rear-seat entertainment system. It's nice; I used it on my most recent road trip. But I just can't picture myself paying for one if it were my own vehicle. The Touring ($41,535) also comes standard with a lot of other stuff, but if you go with the Odyssey EX-L ($34,725), rear entertainment is optional for $1,600. I checked a few other vehicles; $1,500 to $2,000 seems to be the typical MSRP for rear entertainment.
Me? I'd pass and use the money instead to buy two Apple iPads. The value I'd get from the iPads would be exponentially higher.
