The car is above average overall. If I had a complaint it would be that the Variable Cylinder Management gets really loud and it sometimes vibrates at lower speeds. I am not sure if this is just my vehicle only. Also when I accelerate pass 35 mph the sound in the cabin makes a whining noise.
This is the best vehicle I've owned. It's also one of the most comfortable vehicles I've ever driven. The ride is very comfortable and quiet. Handling is excellent. I always feel in complete control in any type of weather in my Odyssey.
Contrary to some of the reviews I'm seeing for this year of Odyssey; I don't really have problems with it. The only problem I had was a power steering reservoir that needed to be replaced ($125ish). At one point there was an odd vibration between 25 and 30 mph. Many people replaced the transmission or torque converter with no success. I just had the transmission fluid changed (scheduled maintenance) with Mobile 1 full synthetic. Problem solved!
Stability control, traction control
Excellent build quality
Dual power outlets in front
Lazy susan storage and other storage spaces
Dual zone climate control
There should be a button in the back of the vehicle that opens and closes the power sliding doors instead of having to pull the handle to activate them.
For a vehicle at this price point and with so many features, I'm not sure how there isn't automatic headlights or HID lights.
While not exciting, this vehicle has given us dependable, efficient service for 5 years. Adequate power, comfortable ride and cavernous interior for lugging "stuff". Great for our two large dogs who travel with us. Highly recommended.
Efficient, comfortable interior, more than enough power, trouble free operation.
The 2005 Honda odyssey is the very best vehicle that I have ever owned. The ride is unparalleled along with the many safety features. The fuel economy with this vehicle continues to go well beyond my expectations. I have had absolutely trouble free driving. Never a problem with my vehicle.
favorite features are: cruise control,fuel saver (eco light), sound system, radio cd and volume controls on steering wheel. moon roof climate control air conditioning and heat, and heated seats for cold climate.
Paragon Honda service and my 2005 odyssey appear to be perfect in every respect.Therefore, no improvement is necessary.
