I was looking for a reliable minivan with ample space, high reliability and high resale value. The Odyssey clearly delivers in that space and surprised me with great performance and decent mpg
- I get about 27 MPG on average. From that view and the resale value, its an economical choice, even though Odysseys got rather expensive. $38K for a mid-level model is rather pricey for what you get in the end and when you look at the cheap plastics that are used throughout the car. The tech in the car is surprisingly mature. The most annoying feature is without doubt the auto-lock of doors. I cant remember how often I run out to the garage and only find all doors, except the drivers door, locked.
reliability, MPG, voice recognition
Please fix the auto-lock feature and unlock all doors with the driver's door when the car is stopped! The plastics in the car are awfully cheap. I understand the design is unique, but my wife calls it "the hearse" and I can understand why she is calling it that way.
