2011 Honda Odyssey Touring: Windows Don't Open
May 26, 2011
The other day I wrote that I was surprised to learn that the rear side windows of our long-term 011 Toyota Sienna SE still pop out for some extra ventilation. I wrote, "I wonder if the rear side glass in the Honda Odyssey can be opened. I'll check and get back to you."
Well, I checked and they don't. But...
...our Odyssey is a top line Limited and its rear glass does have these cool pull up shades while the Sienna SE does not.
Also, in the same previous post I mentioned that I broke the Sienna's seatbelt trim loading my kid's bike into the van. Well, this must have also happened to a Honda engineer. Check out the design of the Odyssey's third row belts. They are integrated into the pillar trim and are therefore less intrusive into the space. This is more attractive and should prove more durable. A much better design.
