Not for Winter Climates
By scottmason on


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


This van is fun to drive with a ton of features. It is like owning a sports car that hauls a lot of people. The radio is amazing with a six disc changer.
The down side is it cannot get through snow. If there is more than an inch of snow, this van slides, spins and is not comforting to drive. Winter driving is horrible.
This van has a whistle from the lower part of the windshield at highway speeds. I read this in other reviews and did not believe it. It is very true and a horrible noise. I have owned this van for under six months and will be selling it very soon.

Best Features

The best feature is digital climate control, set the temp. and move on. Next would be the sound system.

Worst Features

This vehicle needs to handle better in the wintery weather. It handles like a sports car in winter. Not a good feature for a family vehicle in North Dakota. Fix the whistling windshield.
