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.
I recommend this because it has all the space I need in a vehicle for my family. I specifically chose this van because of that reason also, it is the touring edition. I chose the Touring because I loved my Pilot and I travel all of the time which saved me from long trips with the DVD player. After that my kids had gotten bigger and so I went with this specific Odyssey so that we could still travel with no hassles and the kids love watching movies on trips :)
Had vehicle for 30 months @ 68,000 miles. Things gone bad around 36,000 miles during the warranty period and then right after.
What is the problems?
@ 10 miles: CD/DVD (RES) restarts when the ignition switch is turned OFF/ON. 10,000 miles: Front suspension creaking sounds in the front while turning. 10,000 miles: Wind noise from the front driver and passenger door(s). 15,000 miles: Auto sliding doors problems, sling door(s) jam/stuck and leaking fluids. 40,000 miles: Battery is dead. 45,000 miles: Replaced rear shock absorbers. 65,000 miles: Driver "outer: & passenger side "inner" CV Boot leaks. Leaks "NOT" because they have holes in them. It leaks because CV Boot clamps overtime become loose, a loose CV Boot clamps would "NOT" stay tight
With crossovers and SUVs attempting to steal the spotlight these days, minivans had to step up their game to remain competitive in the family-mover market. Both the Honda Odyssey and Toyota Sienna rose to the occasion by offering an ideal combination of performance, comfort, and features modern drivers want.
Vehicles with third-row seating have plenty of features for nearly every type of driver. For families that need a great family-friendly vehicle, SUVs, crossovers, and minivans with third-row seats give passengers roomy interiors and still have enough power to haul plenty of vacation equipment or moving supplies.
