Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
The 2014 Honda Odyssey has slight revisions to its front and rear exterior, and prominent interior updates that include a standard power front-passenger seat and available safety features like lane-departure warning. Top trims receive a built-in vacuum cleaner dubbed "HondaVAC." All Odysseys now use a 6-speed automatic transmission.
All 2013 Honda Odyssey minivans now come with a standard rear backup camera and a simplified center stack instrument panel with an 8-inch full-color multi-information display screen (i-MID). Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity and a USB port are also standard.
The 2008 Honda Odyssey receives a major exterior freshening, with a new front and rear fascia, new wheels and a new, more fuel-efficient engine (EX-L and Touring). The interior gets a major makeover offering new fabrics and trim colors, as well as some new options.
The idea that purchasing a minivan like the 2015 Honda Odyssey is a strictly logical, left-brain purchase is as outdated as the idea of strict brain-function lateralization itself. Obviously, the Odyssey has its functional side. The sliding doors make it easy to get in and out, even in tight parking lots, there's plenty of room for eight passengers, and cargo space is unparalleled. But the Honda Odyssey also has a fuel-efficient and powerful V6 engine, surprisingly good handling, and enough creature comforts to let you think you're behind the wheel of a luxury car, and not the quintessential family hauler. The Odyssey also boasts excellent crash-test scores and an enviable reliability record. It's enough to win over almost any minivan skeptic.

"We were totally against the idea at first... even just muttering the three letter word VAN was forbidden in our family's vocabulary, but after over a year of research, comparing everything on the market and hours of you-tube viewing we were convinced that the Odyssey was for us... well all except the price, but if one works at it long enough you can find some really great deals on line. we drove over 126 mile to save 5,100 on our NEW purchase."

"First of all I'd like to say that this is my third Odyssey. I don't know why did they have to change so many good things into bad things, but here it is. 1)Weak AC, it works "OK" with only refurbished air after 100's 2)Rear seats do not fold flat, used to be flat but not anymore (well it's almost flat). I liked the old folding system better, it seems a little less confusing for someone who never used a car. 3)Older body had more head room at front seats than this new one. If you like to sit high (plus you are tall), you'll be breathing into the ceiling. 4)No arm rests at second row seat (maybe it's the trim, I have EX, but I think the previous one even had it on LX, but I might be wrong) 5)Bluetooth needs work, mic quality is somewhat adequate, but nothing good. Phone book sometimes freezes. 6)In between front seats change/bottles/other things compartment used to be easily fordable, now it's just a huge box. 7)Interior quality appears to be worse than in previous model. 8)Climate control is confusing. Other than that it's a great vat which drives like a car."

Cons: "road noise"

"I love it. My only complaint is that the van lets in too much road noise. Everything else is as good or better than any vehicle I have ever owned... and I have had 19 over the last 45 years."
