2013 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


All-in-all the 2013 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite is a fine mini-van.
We traded in a 2010 Cadillac Escalade for the Odyssey.
We are exceptionally pleased with the overall comfort and flexibility of the seating configuration.
I wish the passenger front seat offered 10 way adjustments for longer trips & comfort.
My biggest issue is with the navigation system. It only displays a few street names when zoomed in on the map.
This is a first of any car we owned with navigation.
Shame on Honda for not updating their software to be on par with almost all other NAV systems currently manufactured.
Honda tech support is aware of the issue.
Besides these two minor issues it is a great mini-van.

Best Features

This vehicle is exceptionally smooth riding and quiet in city driving. The Touring Elite has a great sound system. I also appreciate the Xenon HID lighting. It illuminates the road very nicely.

Worst Features

The navigation system must be improved. It is horrible in comparison to every car we have owned previously (Cadillac, Mercedes, BMW and Infiniti). The navigation system only displays a handful of street names on the map screen when driving. Of you drive in the city or a suburb this is not very helpful if you need to reference other streets as markers on your trip. Honda tech support acknowledges this issue but does not offer a solution at this time. If you rely heavily on your navigation system you may want to consider another car. Honda must fix this issue. This is unacceptable for a what is a pricy upgrade.
