Too many disppointments!
By samnoe on


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


I always loved Honda, but I'm quite disappointed with the 2012 Odyssey. Engine is not powerful enough (now 2014 still using the same weak engine, the Accord V6 gets 30 additional HP!). I am very upset with the sliding doors, worst design ever! Keeps beeping & stalling (Chrysler and Toyota make it much more intuitive). Wipers leaves too big of an area un-wiped. Ride is fairly smooth in general but rough & loud over bumps or potholes. (Chevy Traverse is so much better, as well as Toyota Sienna). At 17,000 miles it started vibrating at braking, I had to change brakes/rotors. Steering wheel feels over-sized. Steering feel not great. Climate controls not intuitive. Remote key fob sucks, and still no remote starter! Turning circle not as tight as Sienna. Ugly gauges. Service engine light not good. Hideous Exterior!
