I always want it to have an Odyssey but i think i would like to wake up and dream or think again, it has a lot space but is very hard to get in the back seat , my kids has to step in the front seat to get in back seat or i have to open the trunk.My Honda has less then 35,000 miles and it make more sounds then my nissan quest with 149,000 so i am NOT very happy about my decision .
We have had Honda's in the past and loved them. We had Chrysler minivan , before, this Honda Touring and I have to say its the best so many more feathers then the Chrysler. Its nice to have a Honda again and I think the re-sale on this minivan will be great. But I don't intend to give it up anytime soon.
The 2006 Odyssey is my second Odyssey. We've also owned 3 Chrysler/Dodge Mini-vans. Both my wife and I drive mini-vans as we both do school carpool. I drive Hondas, she drives Chrysler/Dodge. Between carpool and work I put some 27k miles per year on a van and the Odyssey is at 82,000 miles now. Until it hit 75k miles, it had had no problems and no maintenance needs except for the typical oil, tires, brakes etc. There's been a few minor items that have worn out or broken lately that have been surprising. I had to have the engine mounts replaced, which I have never had to do on any vehicle (We've had about a dozen vehicles and usually keep them for at least 125k miles). A vent adjustment lever and a seat back release broke recently without undue wear or use. The leather seat back has worn through on the driver's seat in the last 6 months. I've never had such wear problems before. It appears that the metal frame for the seat back has a rather sharp edge buried in the foam. Repeated wear from my rear and my wallet apparently rubbed it the wrong way. I would gladly purchase another Odyssey for their dependability and comfort. I plan to replace this one next year. Whether I get another Odyssey will depend more on deciding to get another mini-van or to switch to an SUV or sedan. I carry 4 teenagers to school so space is a must. Few sedans can take 5 adults anywhere comfortably. SUVs are roomy but don't have the reasonable gas mileage the Odyssey does. The Odyssey's price has reached $40k which is hard to swallow so I will probably look to buy a low mileage used one.
