Great Engine/Questionable Build Quality
By BMerbler on


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


The Odyssey has been a great vehicle for our kids. We traded a 2004 Honda Pilot for the van. The shift has made it much more convenient to travel with the kids. The engine runs smooth and provides ample acceleration in the context of family vehicles. The quality overall is less impressive. Our van has just over 48k on it and has a several issues. First, it is already in need of CV joints for the front right and left sides ($600- $700), the leather on the drivers seat arm has already worn a hole (my wife is only 118 lbs-should be easy wear), housing cover on the roof for my satellite radio blew off exposing wires, rear tail light already burned out.

Best Features

Acceleration, Functionality of the interior, power sliding doors, body design

Worst Features

Better warranty (3yr/36K leaves the owner exposed), improve overall quality in leather and other materials
