2014 Honda OdysseyJoseph Lee - Ashland, VA11/21/2016
The van is spacious and the seats are comfortable. The back seat folds down flat into the well. I call it a well, but it's actually a seat storage compartment. The middle seats are removable. I usually take one middle seat out and it gives me ample space to haul things. For instance, I recently purchased some furniture and was able to place the items nicely in my van. Plus, the items you are hauling do not get wet like a pickup. The van drives like a car so it should be easy for any driver. I love the backup camera as it helps me to avoid an accident while backing. As long as you keep the oil changed and do all of your service checkups, this vehicle will keep running and last a long time.
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
I always said I'd NEVER buy a van but everything changes when you have a child. I was quite surprised at how much I like this vehicle. It's practical and spacious and even if you don't have kids it's great for hauling bulky items. It has plenty of cup holders and storage and I really enjoy driving my 2012 Touring Elite.
