Not Reliable - No Roadside Assistance on Warranty
By 4kennyk on


2011 Honda Odyssey Touring 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


At 3100 miles would not start - just clicked.
It was a Sunday, there was no one to call, seems I didn't buy an extended warranty which would provide Honda Care/roadside.
Charged battery, key dropped at dealership.
Dealer advised nothing wrong, but put in a new battery just in case - mentioned no parasitic drain.
Looked up parasitic drain, seems to be a chronic problem with Odyssey dating back to 2004, that is difficult to fix, and leaves many stranded.
Traded in on a Yukon at a $5k + loss - Honda doesn't care - they don't even answer the phone on Sundays.
By the way, fuel mileage was at worst about 20, at best about 25, with a very light foot, flat and 75% hwy w/ normal a/c use.

Best Features

Fuel economy monitoring. Stowing 3rd seats.

Worst Features

Provide roadside w/ standard warranty like everyone else. Fix blind spots. Fix chronic problems which transcend years, like parasitic battery drain and transmission. Second row heated seats. DVD remote, and allow the front screen to display DVD when not in motion. Allow the hard drive to be copied to from an i device, not just original cd's or get rid of the hard drive - how many people still buy cds? Standard remote start, mud flaps, body mouldings, luggage racks Put a panel in the 3rd row to give it a little optional trunk so you don't have to pick heavy cargo off of the ground. Make those window shade lockable so 3 yr olds don't make a game out of snapping them
