"We have no problems with this vehicle It is comfortable to drive and to ride in on long trips. This is our first Honda after years of Toyotas and it seemed that it needed a few more repairs than we were accustomed to with the Toyotas. However, we liked the drive in the Honda better than the Sienna. I felt it was a safe car and was impressed that our insurance rates were so low due to the safety features. It has held up well, looks new and people are always surprised when we tell them how old it is. The gas milage is reasonable and the maintenance has been also."
Pros: "For a mini-van it's the best handling one to buy."
Cons: "Repair bills pile up after hitting 100,000 miles"

"Our 2006 Honda Odyssey has endured 8 years and 100,000 miles of abuse from our growing family, dogs, and Colorado winters. Each winter we swap in a set of snow tires and as long as the roads are plowed, the van handles snow and ice like a champ. Easily the most practical, and up until now, durable and reliable vehicle I've ever owned. At 100,000, though, stuff is starting to wear out/go on the fritz. We had to replace a cracked engine mount and recently the alternator suddenly gave up and took a new battery with it. The van has gone from costing $100-$300 a year to maintain to $1,000-$2,500 in the last year to keep running. Hard to truly complain with a vehicle that's getting on in age and mileage, but I honestly thought I'd reach 200,000 miles before seeing these kinds of repair bills. My brother and sister both have Hondas with 200,000+ trouble-free miles on them."
"This car has served my family well for the last 8 years, and we have enjoyed it. Now we are moving to a different vehicle as children are grown and we are now in a different phase of family life. It is a very comfortable vehicle to drive and own."
Cons: "Best options only available on the upper model"

"I have not had any major or minor problems with the Odyssey for the 6 years I have owned it. Bought it new in 2008. All recalls have been corrected by Honda. New brake pads and rotors, new tires and minor body finish nicks repaired in 2014. No rust.
Interior is equipped with Weather Tech floor mats since 2008. All mats and carpet is in very good condition.
Owned a GM Van previously and within the eight years I owned that particular vehicle, I spent approximately 3-4 thousand dollars in repair bills after the 3 yr warranty expired (naturally). Wasn't at all happy with that one.
Had never owned a Honda vehicle before my Odyssey. I am a believer in Honda."
Pros: "Comfortable and reliable with good gas mileage"
Cons: "middle seats heavy to remove and put back"

"The 2005 Odyssey Touring is the best vehicle that I have owned so far. Many trips from Wisconsin to Florida hauling people as well as stuff have proven to be comfortable and reliable. Its versatility for local errands as well as for longer trips make using this vehicle an easy choice. I will be looking towards another Odyssey Touring when it's time for replacement."
"We've had our Odyessey for 9 years, almost 100K miles on it, and the only thing we've had to replace was a battery (after 6.5 years) and have put 2 sets of tires on it.
When we were first shopping for a new vehicle for our growing family, I was very much against mini vans, but my husband won. It's been a great vehicle for our family and has taken us on many long distance road trips without an issue. Very comfortable and roomy. I love the storage features - the under the floor locking storage bin especially. My only knock on it is that it seems to have more road noise than other cars, but I can live it with that for the quality and dependability it has been."
