2008 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


OK - I have to agree with another reviewer that said many folks will take back their great ratings after putting some miles on the Ody. This is a follow up to an earlier review. The 2008 Ody drives and handles well, but that's where it all stops. Our problems to date include: steering spline knock, faulty wheel alignment, engine ping/knock, oil leak, rattling front windows, and Air Conditioning that currently works only on the passenger side. None of these issues were of course apparent when the car was purchased, but it did not take very long for them to surface. We are bringing the Ody in for service tomorrow, so we'll see how things go. But for now, it's two big thumbs down!

Best Features

Strong engine (though it pings/knocks when lugged), very good handling for a minivan.

Worst Features

Initial build quality. When we will see a HYBRID?
