2011 Honda Odyssey Touring: Shifter Overshoot

April 21, 2011

Our long-term 2011 Honda Odyssey Touring has an IP (dash) mounted shifter right next to the center stack. But unlike our long-term Toyota Sienna SE (below), the Odyssey's shifter isn't gated.

So when I first drove this thing I was overshooting D by running the shifter down to the stop, ending up in L. I only noticed this by looking at the display in the meters. Now I know.

How about some cars you've driven? Is it easy to overshoot the D position?
