2009 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


We've had this van for about 6 months now and are very satisfied with our purchase. Just got back from a 3000 mile road-trip to Florida and averaged the EPA stated 23 mpg with a full load. At purchase time, we got almost $6000 off of MSRP (when deals were good prior to cash for clunkers) which certainly influenced our decision and I still think it is a great value. No mechanical problems to date. I read through some other reviews and folks mention the road noise and the way the transmission shifts. Nothing that bothers our family, but do take a long test drive with a mix of city and highway roads before purchasing any vehicle - don't assume you'll love it just because it's a Honda...

Best Features

Homelink, power sliding side doors, mp3 jack, plenty of power for getting on highways and pulling a full load.

Worst Features

Don't force people to upgrade to the "EX-L" model to get the power hatch. Put the cylinder deactivation feature on all models, not just the upper levels. Bumper strength isn't ideal - bumped into something at very low speed (<5 MPH) with the back bumper and was surprised to find damage.
