2016 Honda Odyssey Minivan EX-L w/Navigation 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

As of September 2016, Honda has no information on their 2017 models. 2016 model pricing is very high. I bought a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica miniVan because it has Stow & Go foldable second row seats.

2016 Honda Odyssey Minivan EX-L 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

electronics in the way of trip meter, digital readouts of computer system is very very limited all you really get is an estimated MPG readout, no elapsed time or average speed or trip information on start engine to stop the engine on a trip. Trip mileage is the same as ti was on my 2001 Chevy pick up truck. There is no way to program what you want to see out of the computer and sensors. The front arm rest are not adjustable there are only a couple of preset positions none of which suit me or my wife. the power seats only go up and down they do not tilt the seat bottom and they are angled just a little to much to the back for my bad back. The analog speedometer and tachometer are white numerals on a light silver background and are hard to see during the day and there is no digital MPH readout only analog. Ride is great, gas mileage is OK. Also i hope you like some shade of silver or black or white because that is the only color that was on the three dealers lots we looked at. All in all not sure why I went ahead and bought the Odyssey!

2016 Honda Odyssey Minivan SE 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Exterior looks are clean and just OK.. Interior is very nice and quite, we have the DVD system which is very nice for long trips rear passengers viewing only.. Onboard vacuum works great but I believe is a gimmick.. Rear 110 volt plug is great . The ride quality is awesome and never cramped for space. ONLY ISSUE : Honda really needs to work on second row rear seats ! If Chrysler can figure out fold flat self storing seats Honda should also..

Review

(1). Leather seats in an Odyssey are uncomfortably hard and hot. The leather doesn't breath like high quality seat leather should, but rather it's like sitting on 1970s vinyl seats on a hot day. Solution: opt for the EX model which has cloth seats that are actually comfortable. We compared the Odyssey leather seats to competition, such as Chrysler Town & Country, and the Honda leather was the worst. (2). The Odyssey spare tire (at least it has one) is stored INSIDE THE VEHICLE, under the floor between the second row seats. So, don't have a flat when you have the vehicle loaded with cargo or if it's full of kids on a rainy day. And, you won't believe where they expect you to store the flat tire you remove - see the manual and be ready to laugh. (3). If you normally wear polarized sunglasses while driving, make sure to take them along when you test drive the Odyssey. On a bright sunny day, the numbers on the speedometer and tachometer are simply not visible when wearing polarized sunglasses. For some reason, the designer decided the numbers should be displayed on a shiny background, making the situation even worse. With all that dashboard screen real estate, you'd think they'd have placed a digital speed display on one of the large screens. On the positive side, the Odyssey is remarkably quiet on the road. While Hondas and their upscale Acuras are noted for their tire and engine noise, you won't hear much of that in the Odyssey. You can actually carry on a conversation with people in the middle row of seats while traveling down the road at 70 mpg. And finally, you'd think that after all these years Honda would have figured out how to make it easy for an owner to get the middle row of seats out of the way for handling large cargo loads. You still have to manually remove them and store them somewhere in the garage or ? If you're a small person or older like me, you'll find that to be a difficult proposition. By the way, the gas mileage is a big surprise when compared to the competition. I can easily get 28 mpg on the open highway and rarely see less than 22 around town.

Review

This is a good car for the family. However, Honda is using relatively poor material in this EX trim to cut cost and keep the price competitive
