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


We have owned this car for 1.5 years. Fairly happy with it, no mechanical problems yet. It offers lots of room for the whole family including the in- laws. Rattles - the plastic panels along the outside vertical edge of the driver and passenger doors badly rattle at high speed(fix with body shop tape). Rear seats are difficult to access when child's seats are installed in middle row. The system informs how close you are to an oil change using the TPMS(tire pressure monitoring system) light comes and the engine light. The TPMS light should only come on when there is a problem with tire pressure and should not be used to communicate the need for an oil change - imho. Mileage is ok ~ 20mph

Best Features

Opening power doors with remote. Backup camera - how did I ever live without it? Homelink system.

Worst Features

The driver head rest is incredibly uncomfortable - protrudes too far forward. Don't use TPMS light to communicate a needed oil change. One button operation on keyless remote that closes all power doors, windows, and locks the car. Make it quieter - too much road noise. Too many rattles.
