2006 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

This minivan has proved itself to be perfect for our requirements. I cannot think of how it could be improved except for gas mileage. My only comment otherwise is: why does the speedometer show up to 160 mph? Much as I like my Odyssey, I do not plan to drive it at 160 mph. John Quinlan


Best Features

Very good handling. Headroom. Room for cargo.


Worst Features

The steering wheel blocks the view to the gas gauge. Limit the speedometer to 85 mph max.

2006 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan w/Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

My wife and I had a Odyssey back in 2001 which we loved. We thought we upgraded a few years back to a Ford Expedition. Hated the mileage and missed the Honda. This is primarily my wife's vehicle, but I have to admit I love to drive it. Honda really didn't miss much with the '06 Odyssey. We looked at Sienna vs Honda and felt the Honda was superior in every aspect. The Odyssey has more options for less money. We have had it for two weeks and have yet to complain about anything.


Best Features

Great pickup, entertainment system rocks, leather seats w/ heaters are very comfortable. Honda refined the previous Odyssey with many wonderful features. A real step up from the Expedition. Hoping mileage improves to advertised rates.


Worst Features

Better mileage. Only got 19 mpg the last time. 24 mpg the first time. It is still a minivan. Hard for me to get excited about driving a minivan. Still love my Outback XT.

2006 Honda Odyssey Touring 4dr Minivan w/Entertainment, Navigation (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

If you are looking for a van with a sporty ride and handling, sport car like acceleration and the reliability that can only co,e from Honda? Then this is your van. It is extremely roomy (far more than the Toyota Sienna and Chrysler vans) and has every creature comfort available. The NAV and DVD are must haves if you drive any distance with your children to visit family or travel for vacation.


Best Features

The NAV, DVD, and steering wheel controls are excellent. The dash board computer information display is easy to use and extremely informative. Destination to Empty, Tire Pressure details for EACH tire, outside temperature, etc. is all very useful detail. The leather is very comfortable.


Worst Features

Turn signal side view mirrors and HID headlights would be a great touch. At this stage of the game, a bluetooth phone interface should come standard with the NAV.

2006 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan w/Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

We've actually owned two 2006 Odys in three months. We returned the first after four days due to the abysmal fit, finish and performance. Our second has proven to be not quite as bad but still not deserving of the Honda name. The MPG is terrible. 15 city with a light foot. The interior fit and finish is poor. The leather is cheap, the plastics even cheaper. It handles well, but plan on checking your tires' pressure every week, because two pounds high or low turns it into a ill-handling beast. Avoid gravel roads and high curbs at all costs, due to where Honda mounted the AC. The sliding doors get confused easily. Plenty of cup holders, airbags and fellow owners to commiserate with, though.


Best Features

Many airbags and cup holders, Snappy performance, Good handling once you get the air pressure set correctly, Great resale value (proving PT Barnum was correct). The factory-backed extended warranty is cheap and necessary.


Worst Features

Honest MPG figures. Better interior material (the GM I traded in had better) Automatic headlights, door- locks. Power passenger seat. An AUX input for the stereo. Mesh front grill to protect the AC. Instruments visible w/o daytime lighting. A less harsh tranny. Better overall quality. control.

2006 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I traded in my 2006 Town & Country for the Honda EX-L. I paid $27,358 for the car and am very happy with the price. The sticker price was $31,390.00. There were only 3 new 2006 left and the dealer was running a special (can you believe a special on a Honda!) All 3 were sold that weekend! The car is very comfortable (I have had 8 people in it twice now). Very quite, a lot of pick up. No comparison to the town & country. Will keep this car for a long time.


Best Features

all the storage and cup holders! Sunroof & leather seats. Does not feel like a mini van. Feels more like a luxury car.


Worst Features

none
