Pro: Terrific car for exurban living. Roomy, comfortable, handles like a sedan. Price for 2003 model well within budget. In three years, no major repairs necessary.
Con: Gas mileage just ok: approx 19 mpg. Front doors close way too easily--watch your feet. Traction on steep gravel roads bad. Light switch on front panel too easily accidentally switched on--goodbye battery charge.
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.
The fuel efficiency is incredible. Its a really comfortable car. I love the handling in this van it feels like you're driving a sports car. The cons the found on this model is the electrical outlet all the way behind the third row seats. Wouldn't it make more sense having one in the midle? To me this car is a solid 5 stars.
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.
