New owner preliminary review

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


I don't fit the minivan demographic as an old retired guy.
Trading my 6 year-old Lexus RX for an Oddyssey was not an economic decision but I am now a Honda owner for the first time.
It's only been a week, hence the word preliminary.

Fit and finish excellent, interior roomy and comfortable, seats relatively easy to manipulate into many configurations.
You need a little muscle to get the second row seats out, though, if the room is needed.
Adequate power, handling surprisingly sedan-like, reasonably quiet.
Many advanced safety features and air bags.
This vehicle represents a highly evolved version of the classic minivan.
The communications features-radio, CD, Bluetooth, USB, are great!

Best Features

Power doors, tailgate, electronics user interface, cabin configuration ease and flexibility,inside-mounted spare.

Worst Features

Haven't owned it long enough to have found flaws. It would be great if they offered a hybrid version.
