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
I know, I know....it's a minivan, but it really does improve your quality of life. It's incredibly thoughtfully designed and intuitive. It's a fantastic car for roadtrips, and if you're a parent and need to know your vehicle will work, and will be safe it puts your mind at ease. It's notably more expensive than some of the peers in its class, but it really is a better ride. For equipment you use frequently, it makes sense to invest in what you really want, and I'm glad I did.
This is a spacious minivan that could fit an entire family of 7, or some friends, or for UBER . The inside in so sound proofed that you feel so comfortable in it. The cargo space is just amazing. The last row of seats are easily removable and you can even have a 4x8 plywood boards in it. Also, it is not that high and it could fit in most of underground parking spaces. I have owned 3 other minivans (Ford Freestar, Kia Sedona, and Honday Odyssey). This one, by far, is the best invested money in a car.
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.
