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

Worse Better
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 2016 Honda Odyssey owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

In-car Electronics

CD or DVD players, radio, speakers, GPS, communication system (e.g., OnStar), display screen freezes or goes blank, phone pairing (e.g. Bluetooth), voice control commands, steering wheel controls, portable music device interface (e.g., iPod/MP3 player), backup or other camera/sensors.

What Owners Say

Display screen freezes up

"simply freezes once in a while"

Curtis W., NY (2016 Honda Odyssey EX-L 3.5-L V6)
Display screen goes blank

"More than 15 times in less than 2yrs, the two display screens do not open when the vehicle is started. After 3-15 minutes, the screen will opens on its own, but we have been unable to determine why this error occurs through troubleshooting at the Honda Service Department"

Jay S., NC (2016 Honda Odyssey EX-L 3.5-L V6)
External music device interface (e.g., smart phone, MP3 player)

"This requires way too much attention to use. Knobs and button with tactile feel can be used with minimal attention. We used to do blindfold cockpits checks and I am able to do all that in a vehicle except the electronic displays/controls."

Clark W., FL (2016 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite 3.5-L V6)
In-dash navigation system (GPS)

"My i phone takes 10 seconds to get location Honda GPS ($1500) takes 10 minutes to do the same"

Greg B., DE (2016 Honda Odyssey LX 3.5-L V6)

"Very hard to set an address and is outdated. Does not include all addresses in city"

Donald S., MN (2016 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite 3.5-L V6)

"Programming a destination is confusing. It has many steps and rarely ever works..most street names are not shown,there is no info. about traffic. I now use my smart phone! Honda wants me to pay $99 to update the nav. on my 6 month old car"

Arthur W., IL (2016 Honda Odyssey Touring 3.5-L V6)

"The position hangs up while traveling with no indication that anything is wrong until you notice on the map that you have already passed a recognizable position (intersection, town, etc.). If you change modes, it jumps back to the correct position. Also, the voice commands are terrible. Even with the passenger doing the changing, it still requires voice and button pushing by the driver and seldom works the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd time."

Clark W., FL (2016 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite 3.5-L V6)

"With no mistakes it takes 5 to 10 minutes program nav system when parked 10 to 15 min. When driving, $200 cell phone takes less then a minute Can’t see traffic warning on screen Once had to shut off the ignition to shut the darn thing off."

Greg B., DE (2016 Honda Odyssey LX 3.5-L V6)

"While traveling, the position freezes up, several times causing me to miss turns."

Susan S., PA (2016 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite 3.5-L V6)
Radio

"The main display that I would scroll through the 12 memory channels would not show the preselected channels intermittently. Dealer would not do anything even with several screen shots from my iPhone. When screen went blank I finally drove directly to the dealer without touching the radio. They replaced the satellite radio module. After several months the radio is now showing same problem. Technician said Honda rep told him to replace radio if happens again"

Anonymous, GA (2016 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite 3.5-L V6)

"The Serious/XM Antenna quit working---needing to be replaced."

Douglas L., FL (2016 Honda Odyssey Touring 3.5-L V6)

"When driving on the expressway listening to the radio all of the sudden the volume went all the way up. I could not turn it down manually or on the steering controls. I was able to shut it off and tried to turn it back on but it still was loud."

Ralph G., AZ (2016 Honda Odyssey EX-L 3.5-L V6)
Rear entertainment system (e.g., DVD player, rear screen)

"CD works but DVD player doesn't"

Anonymous, MI (2016 Honda Odyssey LX 3.5-L V6)

"The DVD player would not play any DVDs."

Ronald I., NM (2016 Honda Odyssey EX-L 3.5-L V6)
Voice control commands

"GPS is outdated. Hard to get an address set. Poorly designed"

Donald S., MN (2016 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite 3.5-L V6)

"Does not recognize a woman's voice"

Michael E., FL (2016 Honda Odyssey EX 3.5-L V6)

"It can not recognize a woman's voice."

Michael E., FL (2016 Honda Odyssey EX 3.5-L V6)

"The voice control commands are horrible. It takes you through several different cues that it gets wrong and you have to start all over again. It'd makes the GPS almost unusable. I use my iPhone to navigate. To add insult to injury, the manual navigation nob broke off."

Susan S., PA (2016 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite 3.5-L V6)

Anonymous, MI (2016 Honda Odyssey EX-L 3.5-L V6)

"Actually, my complaint is better characterized as road noise, but that wasn't an option. The road noise on this vehicle is much too high, worse than my 2006 Toyota Sienna that had 260,000+ miles when i got rid of it and purchased the Honda Odyssey.
