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


Review

One of the most reliable vehicles we have ever owned. It has been a pleasure to own.


Best Features

Great carrying capacity and convertibility.


Worst Features

It's great just as it is, I wouldn't know how to improve perfect performance.

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


Review

base lx well equipped, comfortable ride, good handling, great for road trips, lots of storage space, strong and reasonably fuel efficient engine, no reliability issues yet... unless you need a rwd suv for towing, this is definitely a better "bang for the buck"


Best Features

comfort, ride, room, storage space


Worst Features

some higher end versions have run flat tires that are expensive to replace and wear out quickly

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


Review

I bought the van new and have had it over four years and put 75000 miles on it. I have had the power steering pump replaced once and it still groans and growls. The brakes grate and make noise, but always work. I've had them checked out, but they say they're alright. The van performs flawlessly otherwise. It really likes to go, and dare I say it is "fun" to drive. My teenager likes to drive it. I have a difficult time keeping it under 90mph. I drove the Sienna and it seemed under powered and soft. Gas mileage is good for a large vehicle at 21 city and 25 highway. Lots of room and with a whole lot of storage space make it a great car for traveling. I would buy it again.


Best Features

Looks good (for a van) and fun to drive. Larger than the Sienna and better resale than American cars.


Worst Features

Fix the brakes, and power steering! It seems obvious to anyone who reads these that there's a problem.

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


Review

This was my first Honda purchase and will be my last. I spent an extra $7000 over the Town and Country, expecting to get better quality, but was disappointed at the nagging problems: too much interior noise, poor quality sound system, funny sounds at low engine speeds, poor braking distance, sliding door problems, moulding strips came loose, overrated gas mileage (I never got more 18 mpg). BEWARE, this car handles terribly in wet/cold conditions. My wife can't make it up the driveway. Worst of all, Michelin PAX tires cost $350 each to replace and only last 25,000 mi. This car is too expensive to maintain down the road and cost too much up front for the Honda name. I traded for the Enclave


Worst Features

Overestimated gas mileage, improve the brakes, get rid of the PAX tires fiasco, improve handling, reduce interior noise

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


Review

This was our third Honda Odyssey but most disappointing. Our favorite model was 2004. Have had brakes checked 3 times, rotors turned and replaced, and brake pads replaced twice. Run-flat tires are incredibly expensive and wear fast. Price of tires and installation - what a shock! On third set after 80,000 miles. Also, after a few months, the seal around the front windshield began to whistle loudly at high speeds, and it continues to get worse with age. The biggest improvement has been with the engine and fuel economy. The sound system, which would have been quite fancy in 1985, has been a real dud for the price. This will probably be our last Odyssey.


Best Features

Improved fuel economy Interior space


Worst Features

No more run-flat tires. Better seals around windshield and doors. Better and more reliable brakes. Using a rear windshield wiper size that can be purchased in an auto parts store (Who thought of that piece of work?).
