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


My first minivan due to kids. We left an x3 to get the van, as a left over from previous model year. Hard to beat for camping and any trip with the kids.
Comfortable and peppy for a vehicle well over 4000 pounds.

I bought it as a left over and saved 5000 which made the EX-L affordable

I sold it at 80,000 miles after 8 years. No major costs other than suspension (shocks).

Can't beat the room and driving dynamics. Flexible seating was nice, easy to flip down 3rd row. Recommended.

Leaking rear shocks at 50000 were a bit expensive. Warranty replacement of wheel bearing and piece of the steering pump. At 70000 now with no other issues. Mpg socks but you are pushing a heavy box through the wing. .. What do you expect?
The variable cylinder management is a joke for Mpg improvement.

With the volume of these cars sold, I am not surprised there are a few issues reported here.

My mazda 3 have been bullet proof to 70,000, still made in japan. Odyssey in A
