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


The Good - performance, visibility, function and utility. Reasonably comfortable on long trips. The Bad - initial fuel mileage was poor and took close to 30,000 km before an appreciable difference was noticed compared to my 1992 Aerostar. Short carpet- tearing in rear well. At 43,000 km - power steering pump started making a growling nose was replaced. Bad road noise in mid to rear compartment of vehicle, even after under coating. Needs a better stereo system..no MP3. The Ugly - nothing yet.

Best Features

Great lights for night road illumination. Good gauge set up. Great visibility. DVD and rear controls are good. A lot of storage and cup holders.

Worst Features

-Better insulation to mute road noise. -Better engineering of carpet coverage in far rear cargo well to stop tearing - Better stereo with more features as MP3 options, I-pod or equalizer options - Cut down road noise- maybe stereo would sound better?
