Very reliable with excellent gas mileage for such a large vehicle. Very few maintenace issues encountered over 4 years. Have owned two and will probably consider getting another one. Recommend with anyone with a family. Lots of features.
I had a great experience with my 2009 Odyssey and made the mistake of purchasing my 2012. This van has had one problem after another and the dealer (Norm Reeves Irvine) uses every opportunity to try and rip me off. A noise complaint turned into a $650 power steering pump replacement that did not fix the noise. The sliding door has always had an intermittent grinding sound and was finally recognized by the dealer after the warranty was up. The car broke down and left us stranded with the main computer completely malfunctioning. The brakes are too weak and constant require maintenance. I'm absolutely done with buying any Honda in my lifetime.
The minivan...what a great invention. Never thought I'd get a minivan. It was always RR and S550, but boy what a wonderful and practical car. I've driven my buddy's Sienna and it does not compare to the Odyssey. Toyota tried too hard, whereas Honda is just so good in this market. The only gripe that I have is that someside door armrest stains do not come out easily (i.e. sunscreen residue). Other than that, the slow acceleration, long braking distance, plastic interior pieces are all expected in this vehicle. I will always have an Odyssey in the garage. Perfect road trip and people hauling vehicle.
