We bought the Odessey a couple of
months ago. I don't know why we've
waited so long? I love it!! It drives
like a car and the gas mileage is
pretty good, way better than the SUV we
where going to get. It fits my children
smooth ride, Great power, able to
change stations and adjust volume from
steering wheel,dual sliding doors.
I would like to see the middle row of
seats fold down like other minivans,
also the cig lighter is to low, another
power outlet closer to the front of the
vehicle, You hear to much outdoor
noise.I dont like that the gas light
dosent make a noise indicating its on.
I purchased my 04' Odyssey over the
Sienna an although the vehicle rides
nice I am very upset over the very low
gas mileage I am getting (12-16 mpg).
I have a 2003 Ford F150 Supercrew with
the V8 that is getting much better
mileage than this car. The dealer and
Honda America both say that 12-16 mpg
is acceptible and within the expected
range!! Unbelievable - why do they put
19/24 on the window sticker then?
With gas pushing $2/gallon I would
recommend a different vehicle for this
Drive is smooth and car like rather
than like a van.
Tell the truth about the fuel economy
or improve it!!!
This is the first time I bought an
Honda and I have to admit that the car
has exceeded all my expectations. It
looks and handles superbly.
Suspension and riding comfort are
outstanding too. I previously owned a
Ford and had to put it on sale because
of lower back problems (Ford seating
comfort REALLY sucks!)
On long trips getting out of my Ford
felt like a guy hit my lower back with
a baseball bat. But getting out of my
Honda on same long trips feels like
waking up from a long nap.
If you are about to buy an Ody don't
buy the LX version (cloth seats).
Spend the extra bucks and buy leather,
your back will appreciate!!
