Reviews for 2010 Honda Odyssey
We've outgrown our happy little crossover, a 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander also purchased at CarMax, and so were looking for a minivan (or SUV, but the prices are so much higher for the same space/usage). The Odyssey has the space we need, plus some growing room. We purchased the EX-L version, which has loads of bells and whistles, and 3 years into the vehicle life (and a little over 50,000 miles) they all still work just fine. There are a few features that we don't prefer, such as the doors automatically unlocking when you put the car in Park, or the alarms going off when the car has to be jump started, or the placement of the overhead light button where little fingers can reach it and turn them to On and so the battery drains overnight if you're not careful to check all the buttons after the kids have left the car. But these are small issue, and not indicative of something not working, just not working the way we'd prefer. The control layout is simple and easy to use with well-made, quality feeling buttons, knobs, and rocker switches (Honda likes rocker switches in this vehicle). The only real issue with control layout is that I am a steering wheel drummer, and I'll drum the car out of cruise mode from time to time. Power doors and liftgates are amazing and work well and simply. I much prefer the "pull the handle" method Honda uses to the "press the button on the pillar" method of Toyota. The Honda's method is just much more natural. Finally, the van has plenty of get up and go as well, which is important to me. Coming from a spritely and sporty CUV, any laggardness in the power train would have been an immediate veto of the purchase, but the Honda's V6 puts out smooth and plentiful power for the vehicle size. The engine apparently has the ability to shut off 3 of its cylinders (turning it into an I-3 essentially) for low speed and cruising, and I've never been able to detect when or where this change occurs, its very smooth. Overall this vehicle is a well-made, quality, smooth-running van that should carry me and mine for years and miles to come.
2100 v 2000 Honda Odyssey
We had a 2000 Odyssey with 140,000 miles which we passed along to a child with two young children of his own. My wife's requested another Odyssey even though all of our children have left the nest, since she likes the cargo carrying capacity of it and its dependability (our other car is a 2006 BMW which is more of a garage queen than a reliable daily driver). We just returned from a 1500 mile trip to NC mountains. The Odyssey performed admirably. The transmission was smooth even when driving up and down mountain roads. The suspension made it fun to drive on the back, curvy two-laners. External wind noise was minimal at highway speeds. It had plenty of power to merge into and keep up with the flow of traffic on I-95. The front/back A/C is sufficient to keep up with our FL summers. The newer 2010 Odyssey is significantly quieter and smoother than our 2000 (we live in an area with brick streets), and the rear seat stowage more sophisticated and flexible. Cupholders abound, the leather seats seem sufficiently sturdy to take daily abuse (the 2000 had cloth which also held up well) and we've gotten accustomed to the dash-mounted automatic tranny shifter. And I get to have a car to run to a nursery and load dirty stuff into the back, pick up guests and their luggage, and even transport the occasional wheelchair or motorized scooter. We've have owned several Mercedes, Audi A8, BMW 330ci, Q45 Infinity, and the Honda is not those cars, but it sure does what it intends to do well all of the time.
3rd best vehicle on the market for a large family
I have 7 kids, the only other vehicles large enough to accommodate my family are the Nissan NVP and Mercedes Sprinter. The Odyssey is very spacious, the kids have ample room. The vehicle drives like a dream, great handling, response from the engine and an overall smooth ride. The only thing I DON'T like about the vehicle is the road noise, which tends to be very loud depending on the surface. This is a common issue with these vehicles. I am moving to a larger tire with a better tread pattern to see if this diminishes this. However, if you're in the market for a minivan (I'm coming from a Kia Sedona to this one). The Odyssey is with every penny!
