Road Test Results

Performance
Acceleration Acceleration Acceleration tests are conducted on a smooth, flat pavement straightaway at the track. Time, speed, and distance measurements are taken with a precise GPS-based device that’s hooked to a data-logging computer.
0 to 60 mph 0 to 60 mph (sec.) The time in seconds that a vehicle takes to reach 60 mph from a standstill with the engine idling.
Transmission Transmission Transmission performance is determined by shifting smoothness, response, shifter action, and clutch actuation for manual transmissions.
Braking Braking The braking rating is a composite of wet and dry stopping distances and pedal feel. Braking distance is from 60 mph, with no wheels locked.
Emergency Handling Emergency Handling Several factors go into the rating, including the avoidance maneuver speed and confidence, as well as how the vehicle behaves when pushed to its limit.
Comfort / Convenience
Ride Ride Our expert judgment of how well the suspension isolates and absorbs road imperfections and how steady it keeps the body on various road surfaces.
Noise Noise Our expert judgment of the vehicle's interior noise level in everyday driving.
Front Seat Comfort Front Seat Comfort Our judgment of how comfortable the front seat is for drivers of various heights.
Rear Seat Comfort Rear Seat Comfort Our judgment of how comfortable the rear seat is for two passengers to sit across.

Fuel Economy & Emissions
Fuel Economy Fuel Economy We perform our own fuel-economy tests, independent of the government's often-quoted EPA figures and the manufacturers' claims. Using a precise fuel-flow measuring device spliced into the fuel line, we run two separate circuits to represent city and highway consumption.
CR's Overall Mileage CR's Overall Mileage CR's overall mileage is a composite of measured fuel usage on a prescribed city course and highway cruising; and CR's 150-mile test trip of mixed driving, if tested. In recent road tests, we've discontinued the 150-mile trip test.
CR's City Mileage CR's City Mileage Measured fuel usage on a prescribed city course.
CR's Highway Mileage CR's Highway Mileage Measured fuel usage on a prescribed highway cruising.
Annual Fuel Cost Annual Fuel Cost The cost and amount of fuel used in 12,000 miles and is calculated from CR's overall mileage.
Greenhouse Gas Greenhouse Gas The Greenhouse Gas Rating represents the amount of carbon dioxide the vehicle emits compared to other vehicles of the same model year. This score from the EPA ranges from 1 (worst) to 10 (best).

Reliability History Reliability History The reliability charts are based on responses on hundreds of thousands of vehicles from our latest Annual Auto Survey. Consumer Reports subscribers reported on any serious problems they had with their vehicles during the past 12 months that they considered serious because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime, in any of the trouble spots included in the table below. The results are presented relative to the average model that year. Extra weight is given to the more serious areas such as major engine or transmission problems. Based on this data and further analysis, we predict reliability for the latest year. N/A indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2010 Honda Odyssey owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

Suspension

Shocks or struts, ball joints, tie rods, wheel bearings, alignment, steering linkage (includes rack and pinion), power steering (pumps and hoses, leaks), wheel balance, springs or torsion bars, bushings, electronic or air suspension.

What Owners Say

Alignment

"Front wheels were out of alignment"

Anonymous, CA (2010 Honda Odyssey EX-L 3.5-L V6)

"This issue of alignment also ties into tire wear. The Odysseys run a negative camber on the rear wheels which causes the tires to wear unevenly on the inside tread. To mitigate this you must rotate them more often than usual, say every 5k miles versus every 10k. Pain in the rear. In addition, Honda built these vans without the ability to adjust all three aspects of alignment. Caster cannot be adjusted on these vans. Therefore, alignment has always been an issue for my van."

Anonymous, CA (2010 Honda Odyssey EX 3.5-L V6)

"Uneven tire wear started about 4 years ago. One dealer couldn't seem to align it properly, so went to another dealer and they did better, but alignment still seemed to go out. So now have it aligned once a year to be safe and the alignment equipment does say it is out of alignment each time."

Bushings

"upper bushings and lower control arm needed to be replaced worn bearing on the end of the steering shaft. It has too much free play according to mechanic, It is expensive to repair. You can hear it thump when hitting road horizontal seams. no noise on smooth roads."

David B., AZ (2010 Honda Odyssey Touring 3.5-L V6)

Power steering leaks

"Replaced PS rack, still causing problems - noise etc"

"I found the cost to replace the fluid lines surprising, @ $800."

Zac B., FL (2010 Honda Odyssey EX-L 3.5-L V6)

"It started about 6-9 months ago; my wife had been driving it and noticed it. Mechanic looked at it but could not find the source of the leak. He put more steering fluid in, but over time it has leaked out and made it difficult to steer. Now I am driving it and dealing with it but it's getting close to being unsafe to drive. Will have to get it fixed soon."

"the pump failed"

Anonymous, GA (2010 Honda Odyssey EX 3.5-L V6)

"Honda is very lax in telling customers about extended warranties on their known parts that fail early. Our power steering pump started to indicate failure by occasionally making steering harder. When it did totally fail and we took the Odyssey to the dealer to have it replaced we were told that Honda had extended the warranty on power steering pumps to 7 years. Had we known of this we would have had it replaced within the 7 years, the total failure happened at 7 years 3 months."

One repair shop pushed the seal into alignment, and the leak stopped; but when someone opened the door again the leak recurred. Our solution has been to not use that door.

"Both of our Hondas (the Odyssey and the Accord) have a problem with NOISE levels, especially on the interstate. There seems to be none or very little insulation in the floor of the cars, making it difficult to hear talk or especially hear the CD player or radio. We even bought expensive tires that are supposed to cut down on noise, but it has not helped. Our other problem with the Honda Odyssey is that we have had rocks jump up from other cars hitting rocks or pebbles on the interstate and break our windshield repeatedly. We think it is from the angle that the front windshield is installed. We have had to replace the Odyssey windshield twice and had to have a crack fixed in it once while on vacation because a pebble flew up off a car and hit our windshield. Our other complaint on the Odyssey is that there are blind spots when you are driving...my husband is constantly asking me if another car is beside us because he cannot see it because of the blind spots."

"One year before the certified used car warranty expired the left CV boot ripped. Dealership only replaced the boot, not the joint/axle. Just after warranty expired, the CV joint began making noise. Had it replaced at local mechanic. This reduced the noise, but could still hear a clunking especially when shifted from forward to reverse. Took to Honda dealer. They suggested replacing other CV joint/axle, which I did but did not fix clunking noise. Took back twice for the clunking noise which is getting worse. Technicians can't find anything wrong except that brake booster was leaking. Had that replaced but clunking noise now sounds like a box of rocks when shifting between reverse and forward... also when start and stop at stoplight. Totally frustrating."
