2008 Honda Odyssey Touring 4dr Minivan w/PAX (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Bought in FL and a trip to Illinois has this thing squeaking in the front end like it's falling apart on semi rough roads (most of Illinois). Very hard ride on economy minded tires. Handles very good and comfortable to drive on our 1,200 mile jaunt here. Gas mileage OK at first but now very good at 26.2 mpg for the trip average. A bit noisier then Toyota or Nissan vans I've had but acceptable. Everything works as advertised if one can read the manual. Lots of toys on this thing. Lots of room and main thing is wife likes it. Easy to get in and out of.

Best Features

Room is great. Great navigation system. Very easy to drive. Rides and handles OK except on rough roads and then it's rather poor. Looks good for a van.

Worst Features

Build quality suspect. Had 04 Nissan Quest that was rattle free for 70 thousand miles. Groan in steering early mornings and just 3,100 miles on this thing. Could be a lot quieter on the road with better engineering, more insulation and better tires which are very hard. MICHELIN, BUT NOT PAX.
