I know, I know....it's a minivan, but it really does improve your quality of life. It's incredibly thoughtfully designed and intuitive. It's a fantastic car for roadtrips, and if you're a parent and need to know your vehicle will work, and will be safe it puts your mind at ease. It's notably more expensive than some of the peers in its class, but it really is a better ride. For equipment you use frequently, it makes sense to invest in what you really want, and I'm glad I did.
LOTS of space for pack and plays, toys, and hauling anything and everything. Great highway mileage and very smooth ride. We love the sliding doors and are glad that we can accommodate all of the grandparents AND our family in the same vehicle when they come to visit. Only thing I don't like is that it can be hard to park. It takes up the whole spot.
Great Room, Driveability, and Actually Fun
2010 Honda OdysseyDan Berry - Colorado Springs, CO09/24/2015
I bought a "high mileage" Odyssey because it's a well-made product and I needed a vehicle that was sprung softer for the back injuries I incurred while in the military.
This vehicle (EX-L model) has plush, power-operated leather seats, heated front and passenger seats, a 6-CD changer, heated mirrors, Tri-Zone climate control, HVAC controls for rear passengers, home link buttons, and a moonroof. It's literally a luxury vehicle with front-wheel drive and loads more room.
In the short time I've had it, it's been on several road trips (performed flawlessly) and it has gone to the big home improvement stores almost every weekend (never have I run out of room).
