2012 Honda Odyssey EX-L 4dr Minivan w/Navigation (3.5L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Have had only a few issues, and they were covered by the warranty. It's a great vehicle for the entire family. Plus being able to open and close the rear doors with a push of a button (remote or dash) is a real bonus when transporting other older adults. This is my 2nd Odyssey and plan to buy another one next year.

Look for well maintained vehicle. Test drove a couple that weren't near as nice as the one we bought.

2012 Honda Odyssey Touring 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

This is the first Honda van we have owned, and I have been pleased for the most part over the last 86,000 miles. I like the feel of the van, build quality, great use of space, and general quality. The only 2 issues I have had are: 1. The entertainment system is all custom, and now that the CD player which is tied into the whole entertainment system has failed, my only repair choice is to go back to the dealer. 2. The V-6 engine which I thought would be bullet proof continue to have issues with oil burn. We have babbied this van and done all maintenance, but it is still burning a quart of oil every 2,000 to 3,000 miles. I have since read there are systemic issues with the VCM on Honda V-6 engines, and Honda has not yet provided a solution to fix the problem or allow owners to disable the VCM feature. If I had it to do over again, I would have bought the Odyssey in EX-L trim and avoided the VCM altogether!!

Update: I had the same engine missfire issue again, and Honda did a more thorough fix. So far it seems to be working. Oil usage went down to the point I haven't had to add any oil for the last oil change. If this holds until the next update, I will increase my rating. Still a bit concerned though because Honda's extended warranty for this issue is up next year, so if the problem comes back I may be on my own.

Review

This is our second Honda Minivan and will trade up for a new one. My wife loves that she can see everything due to the height of the van as compared to my sedan .... That she hates to drive. I love to drive it on long trips..... Just set cruise control, let navi tell me how to get there. Only thing I do not like about the navigation software is that various state rest stops are not indicated. We put 100,000 on our 2005 and have 99,000 on the 2012 van with no major mechanical problems.
