Honda Odyssey LX
| ||Model||Honda Odyssey LX|
| ||What things have gone wrong with the car?||As other reviews say, the front seats are somewhat benchlike, fortunately I have no back problems (In fact, I have made a couple trips over 800 miles one way and have no complaints). Dealership experience was poorer than some of the other manufacturers, but the end product makes up for it.A small complaint almost not worth mentioning, when the front dash cupholder shelf is used and change is in the change holder, often the change will vibrate (very petty, I know, just remove the change and it goes away), thought I would mention it.|
| ||General comments?||We paid $1000 refundable deposit to test drive(nothing even available for test drive), van arrived ~3weeks later. Priced at MSRP. This van is great for families of 4 to 6, rear seat removal is excellent and easy to use (a 6 year old can do it by herself). Don't think of paying MSRP as being "ripped off" by the dealer, this van is priced to sell, it is only too bad other Manufacturers don't use "real" MSRP's as well to make comparisons more meaningful (except Saturn, hats off to them for their pricing format, think of the Honda as the same policy if you want to get the bad taste out of your mouth for paying MSRP).My family has owned the Odyssey for 15 months, but been overseas the last nine (without the Honda)... South Korea certainly has no substitute vehicle available, don't think the US does either, we all look forward to returning to our Odyssey. Fully expect 10+ years of use from this vehicle.|
| ||Previous car||Test drove a Windstar, Grand Caravan and Olds minivan (i forget the name). None made any impression close to the Honda. Grand Caravan was second choice but for similar features cost more, and we expect more value in the long run from a HONDA.||
