We have had our Odyssey for about 5,000 miles since purchase. We needed something that can take 8 passengers and is easy to drive, as it is my wife's everyday vehicle. We are very happy with it. It drives like a dream, is very comfortable, spacious, and easy on gas for its size. We didn't need leather/electronics/navigation/etc., but couldn't pass up powered sliding doors or 8-way adjustable front seat (I am 6'0", my wife is 5'2"), so the EX trim model does just what we need.
odessey a must for 3 or more car seats
2012 Honda OdysseyAricka B - Conroe, TX02/06/2016
The Honda odessey is THE only vehicle we could find with more than one top tether hook (used to install a forward facing car seat). I currently have four different car seats installed in mine with PLENTY of room for others to sit and plenty of cargo room for a double stroller, groceries, etc.
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.
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.
