2013 Honda Odyssey EX-L w/Rear Entertainment 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I do not own this car, however, I am frequently asked to drive it as favors. First off, this car replaces a 2000 Odyssey which has cloth seats and gets better gas mileage with the same size engine. The cloth seats in the 2000 are more comfortable for long trips. The car drives and handles well and the backup camera works great. My main complaint are the leather seats. Up to approximately 100 miles, the seats are comfortable enough. After that, you may start experiencing numbness and sharp pains in your butt and legs. My passengers were also complaining about the seats during a trip back from NYC to the Poconos.


Best Features

The back-up camera. Sliding doors.


Worst Features

Make the seats more comfortable for long trips. Clean up the mess of knobs and button on the dash... too much going on!!! Light up the door lock button so I can see it at night!!!! Everything else is lit up, why isn't the door lock button???

2013 Honda Odyssey EX-L w/Rear Entertainment 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Long time Honda owner. Finally traded in my '04 EXL-RES that I bought new on a Wht/Truf '13 EXL-RES. Many improvements in features and ride. Love the interior and vehicle is excellent for long trips. However after 5 months of ownership, quality issues are surfacing. One wheel replaced for poor finish and now noticed others that should never have passed inspection. Paint match on bumpers & painted trim is poor. Rough & thin paint (see through to dark plastic) where rear bumper meets quarter panel and base coat runs where rear quarter panel meets side door. At just over 7K, began experiencing heavy vibration under moderate braking. Not the quality expected on a $37K+ HONDA vehicle!!


Best Features

Interior quality and comfort. Improved ride quality. Power tailgate. Back up camera is excellent feature. Cool box nice on summer trips. My kids (and I) love the stereo system with subwoofer. 27-28 MPG on flat highway trips.


Worst Features

QUALITY!!! HONDA needs to learn how to paint plastics to match metal like other manufacturers have apparently done. Improve paint and finish quality in general. Having these quality issues on this new vehicle and recently dealing with an '06 Civic with suspension issues and a cracked engine block, I am starting to lose faith in Honda quality.

2013 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

When you're test drive a 2013 or 2014, make sure you pay close attention to the wind noise and road noise. It's a design flaw that you can hear outside wind noise when driving above 60mph. You might not able to hear your kid from the second row with the wind noise.


Best Features

Regretting on my purchase


Worst Features

Improvement on wind noise, road noise, remote starter to be build in the same key, stronger AC system, more customizable USB mp3 playlist.

2013 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Just traded a 2007 Odyssey for a 2013 Odyssey EXL . The car drives Great and all the interiro features are nice but...... WTF the USB plays in an archaic fashion, you cannot play files as you woudl on your computer or any other car.... The bluetooth DOES NOT show what song is playing... Its quite a shame that Honda decided to ignore this part of the Odyssey. I purchased a 2013 Civic a few months back and It has all the features, (USB that you can pay your files in order, Bluetooth that displays the song) I am wondering why Honda seels a car ^ months later that has such archaic technology.


Worst Features

Dear Honda Please fix the USB and Bluetooth system.... IMHO it makes a GREAT Car just Mediocre...

2013 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

All-in-all the 2013 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite is a fine mini-van. We traded in a 2010 Cadillac Escalade for the Odyssey. We are exceptionally pleased with the overall comfort and flexibility of the seating configuration. I wish the passenger front seat offered 10 way adjustments for longer trips & comfort. My biggest issue is with the navigation system. It only displays a few street names when zoomed in on the map. This is a first of any car we owned with navigation. Shame on Honda for not updating their software to be on par with almost all other NAV systems currently manufactured. Honda tech support is aware of the issue. Besides these two minor issues it is a great mini-van.


Best Features

This vehicle is exceptionally smooth riding and quiet in city driving. The Touring Elite has a great sound system. I also appreciate the Xenon HID lighting. It illuminates the road very nicely.


Worst Features

The navigation system must be improved. It is horrible in comparison to every car we have owned previously (Cadillac, Mercedes, BMW and Infiniti). The navigation system only displays a handful of street names on the map screen when driving. Of you drive in the city or a suburb this is not very helpful if you need to reference other streets as markers on your trip. Honda tech support acknowledges this issue but does not offer a solution at this time. If you rely heavily on your navigation system you may want to consider another car. Honda must fix this issue. This is unacceptable for a what is a pricy upgrade.
