I just recently traded in my 2003 Odyssey for a 2012.
If you are considering the Odyssey, I would strongly suggest looking at the Toyota Sienna over the Honda Odyssey!
At first we loved the van, but it is very apparent that Honda has compromised it's quality.
Within a week of taking delivery of the vehicle it was apparent that the quality of the plastic of the interior trim was poor.
We have scuffs and markings from the seat belt retracting.
Honda's response is, "sorry that's cosmetic and not covered under warranty".
We are also having a recurring loud noise coming from the front end.
In all, Honda's quality is no longer what it used to be.
There are better options for $40,000!!!!!
