This essentially first-generation Honda
Odyssey (with Isuzu nameplates) won't
turn your head for size.
That said...we love this car!! (Did I
say that already?)
Why? 1) ISUZU PRICE...for a real
Honda. 2) HANDLING...car-like
ride...surprisingly tossable on
curves! 3) INTERIOR SIZE...more
room/flexibility (with the removable
2nd row and disappearing 3rd row) than
a station wagon...cheaper than many
station wagons we looked at, too.
Nice compromise between station wagon
and full-size minivan. With station
wagons, better size/flexibility, with
comparable or even cheaper cost.
Cheaper than full-size minivans.
Paying Isuzu price for Honda vehicle!!!
Also...disappearing 3rd row "magic
seat"...car-like ride...perfect size
for my family.
An academic exercise...as this is no
longer in production (at least in the
U.S.). Still...more hp...cupholder
placement modified (in use, it blocks
the stereo controls)...better stock
