As far as people carrying minivans go, it really doesn't get a whole lot better than this. For one, this is a very comfortable and roomy car. The leather seats are pretty good and the ride is silky smooth. Gas mileage isn't very good (We've average about 18-19 mpg mostly on the highway), but that's the price you pay for having a large vehicle with a V6 and AWD. Speaking of the V6, it's a quality engine. It generally revs very smoothly and there's more power on tap than anyone driving a minivan needs. So far it's been quite reliable reliable. There have been no big repair costs outside of general maintenance.
It's got a surprisingly tight turning circle for such a big car, which is always nice, and on the road it feels a bit smaller than it actually is. Noise is fairly minimal, and as I mentioned the engine and ride leave little to be desired.
The steering and handling in general is incredibly numb and boring, as one would expect from Toyota's electric steering system - it's obviously not supposed to be a sports car, but the Odyssey does manage to be surprisingly fun. The transmission is okay but it takes its sweet time choosing gears. Fit and finish in a few areas is iffy- there are some various plastic pieces that like to come loose and the occasional rattling that comes and goes, not to mention the glovebox doesn't always like to stay closed.
