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.
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.
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.
Interior Fit and Finish Interior Fit and Finish An expert evaluation of the interior quality and craftsmanship.
Trunk/Cargo Area Trunk/Cargo Area Our rating is based on the amount of luggage or cargo space that a vehicle has in the trunk or cargo area.

Owner Reports

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.

The smooth six-speed automatic transmission boosts fuel economy to a best-in-class 21 mpg overall. That's very good for a vehicle this spacious. Crash test results are excellent. And advanced electronic safety features, such as forward-collision and lane-departure warnings are commonly available.

"When it is sunny, which it is most of the time in AZ it is difficult to see the upper screen and the backup features. On the lower screen it is very awkward to see as you have to take your eyes off the road for long periods of time in order to perform a task. Very unsafe. Very poor design"

Johnny R., IL (2015 Honda Odyssey EX-L 3.5-L V6)

"I have a lot of squeaks coming from my car after 38K miles. They started at about 10K miles in. I don't think a van close to 40K in MSRP should do this.

What Owners Say

"This problem comes and goes, and while it doesn't happen "excessively", it has left us stranded once, so we towed it to dealer, who reported NOTHING WAS WRONG. The problem just went away?

"Starting out on cool mornings, the vehicle would surge forward then lug down for 10 seconds when accelerating from a stop and then be fine for several days. The service shop said there is a TSB out there for this and is transmission related. No fix at the present time but waiting on a software update in the future. Service shop replaced the transmission fluid as a stop-gap measure"

Mark L., MN (2015 Honda Odyssey EX-L 3.5-L V6)

"At one time, the transmission started shifting with a loud clunk and continued doing so for several miles until reaching home. The next day, it was taken to a Honda dealer for diagnosis and it shifted normally all the way to the dealer, and the dealer could find no problem with it after a day of testing and diagnosis.
