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


We purchased this van used with 70k miles, currently we are 110k miles. In that time there have been no unscheduled repairs. I will note, upon the test drive, the DVD player did not work, the dealer paid for the repair (~$600). The ride and handling are superior to any other minivan I have ever owned or driven. The build quality is also top notch. We specifically avoided the Touring model because of the PAX tires ($$). The EX- L provides nearly all the same amenities as the Touring model. The entertainment system with wireless headphones is a great systems for those of us with small children. The transmission is starting to show signs of wear, but increased fluid changes solve that.

Best Features

Ride, Handling, Reliability, Build Quality, Rear Entertainment System. Storage space.

Worst Features

At this point, it's nitpicking. The dash and door panels are all hard plastic. Even my 10 year old accord has more soft-touch surfaces. Also, the paint on the hood seems to chip quite easily.
