"I bought my 2005 Honda Odyssey in September 2008, so I've had it for just over 4 years. The car is so reliable! I live in northern Connecticut and have a vacation home in Vermont, so this car sees quite a bit of snow and cold weather! But, it has never failed me. I just climbs those mountain roads like nothing is even happening. My four kids and I and all of our skiing and snowboarding gear is packed in and the car doesn't even notice it. But, that also means when it is just me commuting to work every day, the car seems to want to throw itself around corners, as if there isn't enough weight. Also, this makes my steering become very unstable and jittery, which could be a problem for some of you potential buyers. But it is definatly worth overlooking these minor flaws! The interior is great. I have the LX model with 8 seats, meaning the second row has 3 seats in a bench style, rather than the two bucket seats. This is a great way to squeeze extra people into your car! What is also a well thought out addition is the two-zone heat/AC. I am often colder than my four children, and so I set the heat high in the front, while they like it a little cooler in the back. That way, Mom isn't the temperature tyrant. Summing up, the Honda Odyssey is a fun, reliable minivan with plenty of room, features, and a good design. A seven year old car with 102,000 miles on it isn't worth much these days, but a Honda is. I going to see if I can trade up to something a little newer, but I can't bear to lose this one. I think I'll keep it for my kids. My Odyssey is just too much a part of the family to sell. I hope everybody else who owns this car feels the same, and anyone who is looking for a minivan seriously considers the Odyssey."
