| ||What things have gone wrong with the car?||Stereo could use better speakers, but why limit yourself to factory speakers. Even if a better quality speaker was offered I would not opt. for one. I would rather buy a set of quality aftermarket speakers that suits my needs because at least I know its made of quality materials. Upgraded factory systems are usually from the low end of the quality spectrum. Dealers will not go below MSRP.|
| ||General comments?||I test drove other vans and my opinion is the Odyssey is the best minivan. It may not have the best of everything but functionally it is the most appealing and accomodating. The sliding doors works great for me. Carrying a childseat and bags gives me limited use of my hands so opening the doors via the remote is great. Others have complained about the doors not operating correctly. They have got to understand that Honda designed the doors to only open when the van is in Park and the doors must be unlocked. I feel that people have just got to be a little patient. After all you don't want your children opening the door while the van is moving, do you? And one last thing. If you have the EX model, the gear shifter should not be a problem because most of your radio controls can be done on the wheel.I have one advice for shoppers out there, shop through the internet. Walking into a dealer floor and dealing with the retail sales people will cost you more. Dealing with the fleet|
