Still tough to beat the Odyssey
By Tommy B on


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


This is our 2nd Ody. The first one, an '03 EX-L, was bullet-proof. Got as much as 26 mpg on the highway. Our new 2009 is even more refined. Much more plush interior, nicer exterior colors and lines. Features like power liftgate and backup camera are super useful. Some complain that their new Ody rides rough. Actually, it reminds me of the driving feel of my Bimmer. You can definitely "feel" the road; but it's a good refined feeling, not a "rough" feeling. Interior noise about the same as the old one. The one complaint I have is with the Plus-One center seat for the 2nd row. I find it nearly unusable. First, you can't stow it. On earlier models you could, but no longer.

Best Features

Backup camera in mirror, power liftgate, good hiway mileage.

Worst Features

Make the Plus-One seat stowable. Right now it has to be removed and stored in my garage when not in use.
