We ordered our van when I was pregnant with my second child and have used it daily since. It's side air bags provide the safety every mom wants and works wonderfully with car seats. As my children have grown, they've been able to ride without fighting due to the comfortable and spacious seats. It drives and rides so well even on prolonged 10 hour drives for vacation. I love my Honda Odyssey and would recommend it to everyone!
I recommend this because it has all the space I need in a vehicle for my family. I specifically chose this van because of that reason also, it is the touring edition. I chose the Touring because I loved my Pilot and I travel all of the time which saved me from long trips with the DVD player. After that my kids had gotten bigger and so I went with this specific Odyssey so that we could still travel with no hassles and the kids love watching movies on trips :)
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
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.
