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


The driver's side power door opens a few inches and then stops, a real pain with a new baby which is the only reason we went the Honda route. Poor noise insulation, DVD works ok but the headphones have never worked correctly. Dome light barely lights up, Back seats are uncomfortable on a long trip. Traded a mid-level 1998 Olds Silhouette in on this much quieter, better ride, comparable power, and handled the same. 105K miles was time for a new vehicle, this is our last Honda.

Best Features

Highway gas mileage with Variable Cylinder Management. Heated front seats, climate control. Third seat folds into floor probably the overall best feature of a Honda minivan.

Worst Features

Stand behind your product, my fuel door was not open, and just because you can't make the door not open correctly doesn't mean it isn't happening. More sound insulation, more reliable lighting. If you are going to include headphones, make sure they work.
