Used 2008 Honda Odyssey EX for Sale
Reviews for 2008 Honda Odyssey
A great car for a family
Yes, this is a minivan... you have to embrace it, accept it, and move on. Once you come to grips with the fact you are driving a mom-mobile you can appreciate the space and layout of this versatile and functional car. The car comfortably seats 7, has ample storage compartments and cupholders (13 of them... apparently we all need to twin fist our beverages these days) and drives beautifully. Plenty of horsepower, quick response on the acceleration, and able to hold steady on the open road. Visbility is decent. There are a couple of "iffy" spots in the back of the car, but if you aren't one of those people with poor depth perception and handling skills you will do just fine. This car is great on road trips as well as a daily driver. Dashboard display is clean and clear, easy to follow. The gas door latch is a little difficult to reach if you aren't limber. Rear seats fold flat into a recessed trunk space. This car works perfectly for my family. I have a 7 year old and 2 year old twin girls. I would definitely recommend this car for anyone with multiple children who desires a safe, strong, and functional car for their family.
Euro Car Addict Suprised By Odyssey
Overall both my wife and I love this minivan. I am a big fan of European cars and have owned/driven many. I especially like German cars. So my standards for car performance are high. I never thought I would like a Honda, especially a minivan, but I do like this one. The layout of buttons/controls is good, car handling and ride comfort are also good. Storage and space is great. My only complaints are some quirky functionality of the remote power doors. But once you sort out the logic behind this functionality it is okay to live with.
Best car on the lot
We got to the car lot with all intentions of purchasing an SUV, but just before we bought the Ford Expedition we thought we should go at least "look" at what minivans were on the lot. Side note: we've owned a minivan for 6 years now and swore we wouldn't buy another. There were two vans on the kit that matched our price range and had the features we were looking for. A 2008 Honda odyssey and a 2009 Chrysler town and country fully loaded. Thr Chrysler was a nice van and had lots of bells and whistles, but it didnt convince us away from the SUV. The odyssey on the other hand had a distinct quality to it that you could feel as soon as you sat in it. The leather seats were soft. The sliding doors opened smoothly and without hesitation. The steering was tight and engine responsive. The list goes on and on. We felt a difference in quality between the odyssey and any of the other 15 cars we looked at that day including fords, chryslers, jeeps, volvos, and dodge. We drove off the lot disbelieving that we bought another minivan but now two months later are still in love with the van and know we made the right choice. The safety features are great, variable cylinder management is good on gas, and there is surprisingly so much more room than our old town and country. We definitely recommend this van!
