This is our second Odyssey. First one was an '04 and currently has 286,000 miles. Needed a replacement so decided to go with another Ody. Honda makes a solid product. We've put on 7,000 miles since July with no issues. We expect the '13 to be just as reliable as the '04
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.
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.
