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


We're a one vehicle family, 2 kids, and dog. Leased new in '06 after handing in returning our '02 Civic. The need for a reliable, spacious vehicle was obvious. We went with the LX because we didn't need the bells and whistles. We've made good use of the space - golf clubs, hockey equip, and bikes, and of course many trips to the Home Depot. Overall very pleased with performance, ride, reliability. As a daily driver, putting on 50 plus km a day, it's been good. Snow tires on it for the long winters, and it rides well. Breaks needed work much earlier than expected (45,000 km), but she's a heavy van (no civic). Been looking at 'used' vans too but, not impressed, we'll stick with what we got!

Best Features

Roominess; Comfort; Safety features; styling; Sound system is adequate; Lots of cup holders!!! Fit and finish thus far have been pretty solid.

Worst Features

Fix shimmy at 105 - 115 km/hr range; Better breaks; Better sliding door mechanism (have manual doors, but had to replace the upper hinge assembly - apparently kids 'slamming it' open bends the pin); Auto On Headlights (really, that's an option on the LX)
