The Best Of The Mini-Vans

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


The Odyssey is best-of-breed. Great build-quality and very functional. Where other brands put money into bells and whistles, Honda focuses instead on a great drive-train, top-notch suspension, steering and supportive seating. We have had the Towne and Country and Grand Caravan. The Honda is a more responsive vehicle that leaves the driver feeling in-control.

Best Features

Variable Cylinder Management, A/V inputs and 110V power supply, fold- down rear seating, solid steering with reasonable road feedback, best-in-class suspension and drive-train.

Worst Features

Computer controls desperately needed on EX models (gas mileage, Distance-To- Empty, compass). Also, better instrument layout. Because the Odyssey is positioned as the "drivers" mini-van, it should have center controls angled slightly to the driver. Clock and radio controls should be in driver FOV.
