2005 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Bought the EX-L new. Bad: Paint job-scratches easily. Wind noise-Honda replaced seals as a recall, but still noisy. Steering pump-Honda also fixed steering pump under warranty. Good: The van is extremely comfortable. Drives excellent-like a car. Good power, handling,and brakes. Excellent in snow. Tons of room in back even with seats up. Fuel Economy=18city/27highway-great for a heavy and tall van w/244hp. Replaced tires at about 36,000 miles; not sure why other reviews say Michelins required b/c my replacements are GoodYear @ $120/tire. Few minor problems were unexpected for a Honda. Still much better quality and ride than my two Caravans. Would definitely choose the Odyssey again.

Best Features

Seats are very comfortable. Styling inside and out can't be beat. Gas mileage great for such a big and powerful vehicle.

Worst Features

Paint job-I think Honda improved this in later years. Daytime Running Lights.
