2011 Honda Odyssey Touring: I Ratchet Therefore I Prosper
March 09, 2011
OK, warning, this is a blog entry about a very minor feature that only the fussiest minivan owner or prospective minivan owner is going to care about. I fall into the latter group.
The front armrests in our 2011 Honda Odyssey Touring ratchet. That is, you can set them into one of three positions. Although Honda does not delineate it on either its media or consumer site, not all 2011 Odysseys have this feature. For instance, the cloth upholstered Odyssey EX does not (you get only one armrest position and it's too low for me), so I could not let it win our recent minivan comparison test. Kidding. Maybe. Carry on with your evening.
