2005 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan w/Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


With 142,000 miles on our '05 Odyssey, there's still quite a miles on the original brake pads and the original plugs are still firing fine, but our second set of tires are just about done. We've also had to have the fluids and filters replaced quite a few times. Otherwise; it fires up immediately, in hot or cold, wet or dry; and takes us in comfort to wherever we wish to roam. We're glad we decided against the Touring model with it's PAX run flat tires, but wish there was room for a full size spare. The only other nit to pick is the attachment of the plastic pieces around and under the front end. With mostly highway driving we average around 25 mpg - not bad for an 8 passenger vehicle!

Best Features

Dash mounted shifter; great visibility handling as good as front wheel drive gets; more room than our Navigator with 10 more mpg and a more comfortable ride.

Worst Features

increase front ground clearance (watch the curbs when parking) adopt FCX clarity drive train (fuel cell with electric drive - rear wheel drive please.
