2008 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan w/Nav, Rear Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


The Odyssey bought new in 08 has 27K. I posted previous reviews. Additional comments to previous posts are the brake feel could be improved. Mileage improved to 30 mpg on several trips using 91 octane, non ethanol gas, speed 60 -65 mph. 28MPG has been seen many times. In the suburbs mileage is 21 - 23, Keep acceleration RPM at 2000 vs jack rabbit starts. The van has had no repairs except for a minor issue with the glove compartment door becoming misaligned due to a screw.

Best Features

Interior gauge legibility, headlight projection at night, seat comfort, ease of entry/exit, turning circle, outside style, outside visibility, navigation and XM radio, EXL/Nav features, drive-ability, tray/cup-holders between driver/fr passenger. Great long distance hauler for older couple like us.

Worst Features

Improve quality of interior plastics. Reduce road noise, improve paint quality, update the dash design, & improve radio sound. The power tail-gate and auto-off lights which became standard on the 09 was a good update. Wish we had those features.
