2015 Honda OdysseyKaren W - Livermore, CA10/24/2016
My family wanted an SUV to replace our 2003 odyssey. I really loved that car, but my family convinced me to upgrade and get the newest safety features available. The main reasons why I chose the 2015 Odyssey over SUVs - Less expensive, better gas mileage, and more comfortable! And I can get in and out of the Odyssey so much easier than a huge SUV!
I got the touring so it has the DVD player, etc, which is cool, but my teens mostly play on their phones or iPads. It also has navigation, but it's a bit of a pain to use. You can't enter an address/destination while the car is in drive- great for driver safety but inconvenient for the passenger. Much quicker to plug my phone into the USB slot and use my favorite navigation app. Great car overall
If you have to drive a minivan, this should be it!
We love our Odyssey! Before this one we had a 2001 and sold it with 229,000 miles on it! It still ran great. After owner the older van a couple months we knew our next van would be another Odyssey. The comfy leather seats, easy adjustment and tilt on second row, roomy trunk, and automatic EVERYTHING make this van an amazing value and definitely the right choice. Our family of 6 (5 year old triplets and an almost 7 year old) couldn't be happier with it. We added an after market DVD player and are very glad we did.
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.
