My odyssey is 2 weeks old. About 1000 miles. Absolutely love it. Pleasure to drive. Gas mileage appears to be very good. Traded in my 2002 odyssey. The 02 was a great van. 180000 miles. Nothing major. I highly recommend the 2016 Odyssey

Good deal

seriously very happy with our purchase. I just think the user interface for the controls could be better. and the one thing we HATE, is that there is no way to adjust the passengers seat height.

My husband and I were super Minivan averse...but, none of the three row SUVs were able to match the space and comfort of the Honda Odyssey. I was also concerned about acceleration and performance on highways and have been pleasantly surprised.

We've only had the van for less than a month, but put on about 2600 miles visiting relatives. It's been a great van to travel with, it's smooth riding and comfortable for long distance traveling. Plenty of head and leg room although the passenger seat could use a bit more leg room. This model has a lane departure (left & right) and forward collision warning systems already installed - hopefully these will be standard in all vehicles in a few years. We have not ridden in the back seats yet although they do have child seat restraint connections. The console controls are taking a bit of time to learn, but the CD, reference and owners manuals are helpful. It does not have parking assist nor have we driven it in snow yet (our prior 2000 Odyssey worked fine in snow, but we used studded tires especially for stopping on ice - hoping to see an all wheel drive model soon). We both have noticed the rear seat headrests do block some of your rear view, but are learning to not put anything high in the center of the vehicle. We do like the right turn signal and accompanying video of the right blind spot when making right turns - would be a great feature for left turns too. We did not get the nav or entertainment packages. As to reliability, we expect it will do well as our prior Odyssey was excellent - time will tell. We were getting 25+mpg towing a small 5 x 8 enclosed utility trailer and a canoe on the roof rack, but have not taken it out yet for another highway journey without the extra drag. We need to figure out how to disable the automatic rear gate lift as it hits the canoe with the upper rear window cowling when rising and immediately lowers again - kind of hard to load things when that happens - I'm sure there is a way. All in all a great vehicle so far!

Best family vehicle

Research the vehicle value. Test drive, but don't purchase on the spot. Challenge the lowest price with an even lower price and send your offer to the dealership. Rule #1: Best prices will be found at high volume dealers. Dealerships with low inventory have to make their profit off the customer, not incentives from the manufacturer. Don't believe the old line: You are asking me to sell my vehicle for less than I paid for it...how can I stay in business without a profit? Case in point: Every dealership I called was quoting $37,000+ drive out (list $38,900) and two said $35,700 was the lowest drive out price possible. One dealership, Honda of Conyers, knocked off over $7K the list price and sold me the van for $34,934 drive out with 1.9% financing for 4 years. The reason for them to deal was they received the van from another high volume dealership and it had sat on their lot for 60 days or more. According to Donald Trump (Art of the deal), any deal you can't walk away from is a deal your are too emotionally involved with to get a good deal (paraphrased). Case in point: I originally negotiated a purchase with a Honda dealership for $36,000 drive out and was sitting at the finance managers desk with $1500 cash and a certified cashiers check for $8500. The finance manager and subsequent sales manager told me their dealership had a "policy" against taking cashiers checks and told me I would have to cash the check and bring them the cash. I told them if they wouldn't take the check I was walking out...and they refused to waive their policy, and I walked. Praise God, because 5 days later Honda of Conyers agreed to sell me the same van for $1066 less and would have taken my cashiers check (but I had subsequently cashed it in preparation for a cleaner deal). Also, Internet sites like Edmunds and TruCar have their favorite dealerships, and don't actually give you access to all the possibilities. Most will only provide 1 or 2 dealership prices, not necessarily the lowest. In fact, Honda of Conyers was not mentioned by either site and they were the lowest. Good luck and be that educated consumer!

As of September 2016, Honda has no information on their 2017 models. 2016 model pricing is very high. I bought a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica miniVan because it has Stow & Go foldable second row seats.

electronics in the way of trip meter, digital readouts of computer system is very very limited all you really get is an estimated MPG readout, no elapsed time or average speed or trip information on start engine to stop the engine on a trip. Trip mileage is the same as ti was on my 2001 Chevy pick up truck. There is no way to program what you want to see out of the computer and sensors. The front arm rest are not adjustable there are only a couple of preset positions none of which suit me or my wife. the power seats only go up and down they do not tilt the seat bottom and they are angled just a little to much to the back for my bad back. The analog speedometer and tachometer are white numerals on a light silver background and are hard to see during the day and there is no digital MPH readout only analog. Ride is great, gas mileage is OK. Also i hope you like some shade of silver or black or white because that is the only color that was on the three dealers lots we looked at. All in all not sure why I went ahead and bought the Odyssey!

Exterior looks are clean and just OK.. Interior is very nice and quite, we have the DVD system which is very nice for long trips rear passengers viewing only.. Onboard vacuum works great but I believe is a gimmick.. Rear 110 volt plug is great . The ride quality is awesome and never cramped for space. ONLY ISSUE : Honda really needs to work on second row rear seats ! If Chrysler can figure out fold flat self storing seats Honda should also..

(1). Leather seats in an Odyssey are uncomfortably hard and hot. The leather doesn't breath like high quality seat leather should, but rather it's like sitting on 1970s vinyl seats on a hot day. Solution: opt for the EX model which has cloth seats that are actually comfortable. We compared the Odyssey leather seats to competition, such as Chrysler Town & Country, and the Honda leather was the worst. (2). The Odyssey spare tire (at least it has one) is stored INSIDE THE VEHICLE, under the floor between the second row seats. So, don't have a flat when you have the vehicle loaded with cargo or if it's full of kids on a rainy day. And, you won't believe where they expect you to store the flat tire you remove - see the manual and be ready to laugh. (3). If you normally wear polarized sunglasses while driving, make sure to take them along when you test drive the Odyssey. On a bright sunny day, the numbers on the speedometer and tachometer are simply not visible when wearing polarized sunglasses. For some reason, the designer decided the numbers should be displayed on a shiny background, making the situation even worse. With all that dashboard screen real estate, you'd think they'd have placed a digital speed display on one of the large screens. On the positive side, the Odyssey is remarkably quiet on the road. While Hondas and their upscale Acuras are noted for their tire and engine noise, you won't hear much of that in the Odyssey. You can actually carry on a conversation with people in the middle row of seats while traveling down the road at 70 mpg. And finally, you'd think that after all these years Honda would have figured out how to make it easy for an owner to get the middle row of seats out of the way for handling large cargo loads. You still have to manually remove them and store them somewhere in the garage or ? If you're a small person or older like me, you'll find that to be a difficult proposition. By the way, the gas mileage is a big surprise when compared to the competition. I can easily get 28 mpg on the open highway and rarely see less than 22 around town.

This is the worst car we've ever owned as far as heat goes!!!! It will not cool down. We took it back to the dealership because we thought there was something wrong with it, it didn't cool down for about 45 minutes. That's when the girl that worked there said that all new Honda Odyssey's are like that! I don't know about you, but I live less that 1/2 an hour from where I work and am not excited about driving to and from work in total heat! I did what any normal person would do and called Honda Corp. The manager we got immediately said that it should take 3-5 minutes to cool down the car. However, he then called the dealership and his tune changed. He explained that it was hot in FL (something we apparently weren't aware of--we only live here). Then he said the interior temperature of the car can reach 140 degrees and it takes a while to cool down. By that logic, the engineers didn't take into account 3/4 of the US, because this year it was hotter in the Northeast and Southwest than it was in FL this year. Somehow our 2011 HONDA CR-V and our 2009 Toyota Sienna can cool down in this heat, but not a 2016 Honda Odyssey. I showed up for a meeting drenched in sweat--FROM A BRAND NEW CAR!!!! I was asked what happened--I told my client's what happened and now I'm telling as many people as I can. If you live in an state that can get hot--DO NOT BUY this car!!! It's not worth it to ride around in heat to and from work!!! I'm stuck with it, but you don't have to be.

Bad Piston Rings (known issue) 54K miles

This is the second Odyssey we've owned. Before this, we owned a 2005. Our 2012 has been extremely disappointing. The left side sliding door struggles and pops and will open about 25% of the time. Dealer replaced a mechanism and it is still doing it. Going back to dealership next Tuesday. I can deal with the door problem, but this past Friday, the engine light began flashing and the traction light remained on as well. 5 minutes on Google will let you know this is a major issue - to the point Honda settled a class action lawsuit related to it. Long story short, it seems the VCM (Variable Cylinder Management) is the likely cause. The piston rings in cylinders 1, 2, 3 and 4 needed to be replaced. This was covered under an extended warranty bulletin as a result of the lawsuit. At 54,000 miles, a Honda engine should not need new piston rings. Honda engines are supposed to be the Holy Grail of engines. The fact that this is not a fluke and is a widespread issue, has me questioning Honda's commitment to quality. A new Odyssey is due out later this's year - by that time, however, we may be in a Sienna.

I love this van in many ways but am VERY disappointed with the AC system. I live in Phoenix and it takes at least 20 minutes to cool the cabin temp down to 75 when it's 100 degrees or more outside (happens all summer here). I only ever take short in town trips that are usually less than 10 minutes. Anyway, I'm devastated about it but serves me right for just assuming I'd love it because it's a Honda Odyssey. I recommend an extended test drive before you buy to be sure you're happy with it! UPDATE - Tempe Honda here in Arizona has been wonderful in helping me to love my new van. First, they evacuated and recharged the AC system since I purchased a vehicle that had been on the lot a long time. That improved it somewhat. Second, they offered to swap for a white van (we purchased the beautiful scarlet pearl), but after a test drive we decided it wasn't that different and my family prefers the red. I asked if they'd throw in the custom fit sun screen for the windshield and they did. It keeps the dash much cooler when I'm shopping and makes the cabin temp lower after a few hours compared to leaving it exposed under our intense sun. I'd recommend getting the custom fit shade from Honda when you purchase your van. Makes a huge difference on that large dash!

I have an Odyssey Touring Elite! The likes: 1. Incredible hauling capacity for 8 passengers and the accompanying luggage. 2. The third row is very comfortable in comparison to the competition. 3. The standard HID headlights and safety features on the Elite model are life savers and should be standard on all models in my opinion. 4. The front warning collision system is incredible fast to alert drivers of a possible collision. 5. Very low maintenance costs. 6. Incredible sound on the optional audio system standard on the Elite. My Odyssey now has almost 60K on it in just 1.5 years of ownership. The Odyssey is excellent in so many categories I am able to overlook the following issues: 1. The front passenger seat is only a 4 way power. Honda should make this at least an 8 way power on its upper trim models like some other minivan manufacturers. 2. The front and middle row seats need extra cushion! I use this vehicles for long family trips so I extra padding could make the trip much more enjoyable. 3. The radio interface is just clunky and horrible. The entire system should be redesigned to make tuning and adjusting settings much easier. 4. Honda skipped adding armrests to both sides of the middle captains seats! The only workaround is to place the optional sliding middle seat in the second row down to utilize it as an armrest and for its cup holders. Just odd and it screams bean counter at Honda. On an Elite trim level armrests should not be omitted. Despite these problems, I love the Odyssey. I hope Honda addresses these problems on the new 2017 model so I am not forced to go with another brand offering all of these features it desperately needs to stay competitive.

The main difference between models is features. The basic vehicle is the same. There is no factory protection applied to the fabric interior. A real oversight for a vehicle to carry around sloppy children, or in our case grandchildren. I added a dealer protection package which included interior and exterior clear coat and was the only option. It would be better to negotiate this adder before agreeing to purchase. Internet pricing for the dealers allowed me to get the best price and the color I wanted. I highly recommend using it for your shopping.

I've only owned the Odyssey for a couple of weeks, but i've enjoyed it immensely. I'm one of those guys who had to be persuaded to buy a minivan after the birth of our second child, but I'm glad we bought it. The car handles well, the interior space is fantastic, and the automatic doors are brilliant. I still think the van's exterior styling is a bit odd, but even that is growing on me.

Not as special as as we originally thought. Honda has been resting on its past reputation. Their quality has fallen greatly and their dealer service centers are failing miserably. Do a quick online search for Honda Odyssey brakes and you will find many issues with their brake systems being defective and their failure to take ownership. Many like ours have had issues with less than 15,000 miles and Honda refusing to take care of the problem even though the car us under the manufacturer warranty. This is just one of many issues customers are facing.

Plenty of room inside; comfortably fits 8 passengers; drives and handles well. We considered moving onto a SUV but couldn't pull ourselves away from the convenience and practicality of a minivan. Easy entry and exit for kids, plenty of space and lots of trunk room to haul lots of sports gear, groceries, large purchases and many other objects. The trunk room just doesn't compare to the small space offered by most SUVs. Plus the gas mileage is great!

Honda Quality isn't what it used to be!

After loving my 2005 Odyssey for almost 12 years I decided it was time to update. I didn't put a lot of time into research because I knew what I wanted. Well you know what they say about 'assuming'. I assumed that the new Odyssey would be as good if not better than my last version; I was unfortunately wrong. First, the only way I could get both Navi & Rear Entertainment is to upgrade to a Touring; even though that combination used to be available on the EX-L. Fine, I can upgrade. I will start with the changes I find inconvenient. There are at least 4 cup holders missing; 2 in the front that used to pop down from bottom of the dash and the two on the sides of 2nd row seats. There is no good spot for kids in the second row to put their drinks. The tray on the center console is very shallow; it is not even deep enough to hold a stack of mail. There is a large storage box in the center console now, but it is so deep it is not realistic to go digging in there while you are driving; and to open it up means you can't store anything on the top tray. There is now only one glove box, rather than two; I found the little glove box was just right for registration and insurance cards, now just throw them in the big hole. The hidden compartment in the floor of the second row is now gone. With the old version of the rear entertainment system, it was one button push to control it from the front; that is not the case in the new version. The entire menu / control system is very difficult to use; no longer a quick touch but now you must dial and toggle and dial some more, and then go find the button to push. Fortunately my kids are now big enough to control it from the back but I don't think it would be doable with younger children (which surprisingly was the big selling point over the Toyota when I bought my first one). It is nice to be able to synch your phone and you can even voice tag your most used contacts. Only problem is that the voice tags don't seem to work, it actually brings up every person with a J in their name except for the one I want, even though that person is my number one favorite. Now for the more serious concerns. The windshield had a very bad distortion, so much so that I had a headache the entire day after I drove it to work. Imagine wearing someone else's glasses or looking through a fish bowl; that was the effect. Every person I had get in the driver seat saw it (except those at the dealer). Now today, the first time I use the windshield wipers because it rained, the passenger side wiper arm pops off while I am driving. I have only had the car for about 10 days, but if this an indication of Honda's quality I am concerned.

Almost ideal minivan falls short on driver comfort

After about a month of daily use, I have only two complaints about the 2016 Odyssey EX. First, there is very little legroom for the driver's left leg. Because of the front cabin shape and wheel well placement, it's impossible to stretch out the left leg while driving. I'm comparing this to my previous car, a Honda Accord; I haven't driven any other minivans, so I don't know whether the Toyota Sienna, for instance, is more comfortable for the driver. This may sound minor, but it's making me dread my upcoming cross-country move, during which my leg will be bent at an unpleasant angle for 9+ hours each day. The second complaint is about the entertainment/information panels. My last car was a 1998, so I can't compare this to its modern peers, but the all-digital interface makes me pine for the days of physical knobs controlling simple things like balance and tone. I can't navigate through multiple menu screens while driving, just to control the bass or the balance. And overall, I find the computer controls to be un-intuitive.

After 12 years, 222,000 miles and raising 3 children with our 2004 Odyysey EX-L, we decided to buy another one. It's still an awesome vehicle for the intended purpose. This is my wife's daily driver, so she has to be happy. If you get car sick easily beware of this van's tendency. In the beginning the transmission was jerky as it was wearing in, and that was bothersome. But after 700 miles now it seems to be smoothing out. Everything else is great. My only other advice is to avoid contact with Honda dealerships as much as you can. We contacted multiple dealers as we were looking at both gently used and new vehicles and the experience was bad at every one. We've bought other vehicles in the past from Honda and other makes and had good impressions, but this time we truly felt like just a number to them. It was so disappointing!

We paid way too much money for a navigation system that does not work properly. It adds extra miles to our car. We can be a few blocks from home, and it thinks we are 3 miles away. THis has happened in other states we travel too - not just ours. It is not user friendly - it has a knob and you can take 10 minutes or more trying to find where you are going if you can even find it. Some local places i search for, and the navigation directs me to other cities or Canada. I have tried working with the dealer and want my money back for the system. The Representative claims after my last visit, this is how it is supposed to work and there is nothing they can do because it is not broken. There are free apps on our phones that work much better. It has never rerouted us due to traffic, and many times you can't change anything unless you pull over and stop the car. If i purchased this through a store, i could return it. We are still pursuing matter because we are very disappointed Honda is not standing behind this. What if it was an emergency and we had to find a hospital? It can take 10 minutes just trying to work the system, and how do we know it would take the fastest route? We live in Southern CA and it does not even recognize freeways that have been here 10-20 years or more. The settings have been checked at 2 dealerships, they installed a new system and nothing changes. We are so disappointed that we paid a large amount of money for a product that they are not standing behind. We were told they can fix it if something was wrong, but they didn't make it. They are selling it - they should stand behind it. We feel totally let down and that Honda is not standing behind this. Save your money and use the free apps on your phone. We are still pursuing the matters and will continue to not recommend this product. Even the sales reps don't use it - we should have taken that as a sign not to get it. We just thought it would be nice and convenient, and now it could be a hazard to us - especially in an emergency. When they finally contacted me, the Honda Rep said they would give me my next update for free and hopefully one of these years it would work. I said no. I want my money back and did not agree to this free upgrade. It has been replaced and there are no updates and it just doesn't work.

Have some common sense

This is a mini van. With all of the electronic doors and computers, it is not the minivan of the 80's. So far so good. Simple to buy a Honda. No trying to figure out stupid accessories and options. They really simplify the process. The seats fold and/or install and remove easy. Easy to open the doors and tailgate. The computer system/setup is terrible. You have two screens showing sort of the same thing, but not really. Trying to figure out how to get the audio working for the RES from the front seat was a challenge for a tech person. Not impressed with the two screen setup. Very Wonky. Not a deal breaker though. I would buy another. I hope the cables last on the auto doors, time will tell. I wish there were covers to put over the metal loops (latches) if you remove on seats from the second row (we have the middle seat removed which leaved 4 U shaped metal pieces protruding from the floor to collect food and mud. I highly suggest adding weather tech mats. A huge life saver.

Since my last odyssey a 2007 EXL a lot of changes were made. The ride is great, noise level is better, safety features are nice but take a little getting use to. One thing I wish Honda would look into is folding outside mirrors. Home owners with limited garage space this feature would be nice to have. I could go on about the car but I think Honda has a home run with this vehicle!!!

Honda Infotainment System Like 2016 Flip Phone

If car manufacturers are going to bombard interiors with standard electronics, the performance of infotainment systems will be a large part of my review. As such, the Honda Infotainment system in my 2016 Odyssey seems to be 5-6 years behind what I would expect in a new vehicle today. There is a wonderful wide screen on the dash and a touch screen lower down. When you test drive you are thinking, wow! that is pretty cool. But, you can only try so much of the Infotainment system on a test drive. So, after purchase when you sync your phone to your new van and realize, wait!....no Android Auto availability! It is available in other 2016 Honda offerings, but missing in the 2016 Odyssey. So the cool wide screen display on the dash is kind of worthless other than showing the Pandora song that is playing, or your trip computer information. So...overall the electronics are flashy but near worthless. Overall, the controls of the Odyssey Infotainment are clunky, slow to respond, and require far too much "eyes off the road" time. This is my second Odyssey, so other things I've noticed are.....this van has much more road noise than my 2008 Odyssey. Dealer on the test drive suggested to turn up the radio....LOL. Also, the body quarter-panels and hood on this appear to be plastic or some other non-metal material and probably contributes to the added road noise. Cabin body panels are still metal. Overall, though, it still has good interior utility, decent interior materials (far better than the Sienna which I looked very closely at.) I like the drive and seat comfort of my 2016 Odyssey compared to my 2008. Overall, I'm not disappointed in my purchase....it is still a great family mover. I'm just disappointed/disenchanted that the electronics are so prevalent in the dash, but seriously lacking in useful functionality.

Road noise a bit higher than I hoped for. Everything else excellent so far. I only have 1,200 miles on this vehicle since I purchased it a few weeks ago.
