"Heavy vehicle but handles The road well and has good acceleration"

Fred F., CA (2016 Honda Odyssey)

"Very comfortable seats. Easy to see out of the windows, front side and rear. Sometimes the left support post on the front window obstruct my view of pedestrians crossing the street or bicycles crossing on the street while I am stopped."

"Ample acceleration and safe handling for a van."

Anonymous, CA (2016 Honda Odyssey)

"Before purchasing, I thought the Odyssey would be sluggish and slow to accelerate due to the size of the vehicle. During testing driving, I was shocked at how well it handled and accelerated and it didn't feel like I was driving a van. We obviously ended up purchasing the Odyssey."

Anonymous, IL (2016 Honda Odyssey)

"This is my fourth Odyssey, and I have driven other rental minivans (and owned one - Sienna). This Odyssey is the best-driving minivan of them all. Steering feel is great. Acceleration and handling is excellent for all driving I do, from highway merging to long vacation drives in winter conditions. Love driving it!"

BRUCE W., FL (2016 Honda Odyssey)

"The Honda Odyssey is a very nice turning radius. It also handles very good on curves and ramps where I feel good stability. I feel less problems with Crosswinds. The jury is still out on acceleration as I sometimes feel slight hesitation on acceleration. My a road mileage is excellent. The mileage that I reported here is due to mostly local driving."

RAYMOND M., IL (2016 Honda Odyssey)

"We have the Odyssey SE (which was not included in the drop down options of this survey). Compared to our 2006 Odyssey EX, it is grossly underpowered. The "on demand" acceleration is poor (not sure if our motor is a lemon in terms of horsepower), but we have chalked it up to the "eco gearing" of the transmission. Although we are completely satisfied with every other aspect of the van, we are considering trading it in for the 2017 Odyssey which is advertising 290 horsepower as opposed to 235 ho"

"Seats very adjustable/easy to find comfortable driving position. Quiet ride."

JIM L., MN (2016 Honda Odyssey)

"The rear seats fold away easier than other vehicles that we looked at."

ANDREW C., WA (2016 Honda Odyssey)

"Noisy ride w cooling system in use. Cooling for middle and back rows is not as responsive as desired."

Anonymous, DE (2016 Honda Odyssey)

"Low noise, comfortable seating for all passengers in the van. The driving position is comfortable, although I wish it had a little more leg room for the driver (I am 6' 5"). The vehicle has low noise. The van has an excellent turning radius. The fuel economy is excellent for such a large vehicle."

DANIEL S., CA (2016 Honda Odyssey)

"The seats are smaller than what we had in our 2009 RAV4 and not as comfortable. It looks like Honda was just trying to save on cost by making things smaller and saving on material (leather)"

Anonymous, OH (2016 Honda Odyssey)

"Looks are decent, the ride and driving are the best of any van I have driven. Climate control is good on a van this size and are easy to use. The touchscreen audio is a distraction, they need to rework it. Seat comfort is good in every seat except the drivers seat."

"I wish that I knew that the 2016 odyssey is much wider than my 2002 odyssey before I bought it. I have to manually fold the driver side mirror before I can safely enter my garage. I might have bought a touring level odyssey instead of the ex-l level odyssey because the touring odyssey has a switch to fold the mirrors."

What Owners Say

"Very reliable, low total cost of ownership"

Anonymous, OH (2016 Honda Odyssey)

"Dont get navigation takes up to 5 minutes to set destination Iphone takes 5 seconds and is $1200 less. Removal of second row seats is a back breaker, putting them back is worse good mpg and a nice ride"

Joseph T., AZ (2016 Honda Odyssey)

"The Odyssey is a very comfortable van that is only beginning to feel broken in at 45,000 miles. We drove 275 miles and got 13.5% off of list on the Special Edition model that came equipped with the built in vacuum, DVR player, and upgrade wheels. We paid $30,000 and it has a sub-woofer!"

Anonymous, NC (2016 Honda Odyssey)

"I have really enjoyed this vehicle. While in-town mileage is not great (~22-23), traveling on the Interstate at 65-70 I get from 27-31 MPG. I usually have the rear two seats down with a Everspace Waterhog mat placed on the floor - this allows my dogs to rest comfortably without adding any additional fixtures. When I need to load more people, I simple roll up the mat, raise the seats and place the mat in the luggage space. Everyone enjoys traveling in the van. Finally, I have a severe hearing problem. The Honda is one of the few cars in which I can have a conversation with others."

William D., IN (2016 Honda Odyssey)

"Amazing comfort and versatility for the money"

John H., MI (2016 Honda Odyssey)

"I think the Honda Odyssey is a bargain compared to prices of SUVs and pickups. I'm a cyclist and runner and it is great for taking my bicycle. I got tired of leaving a $6500 bicycle sitting on a rack on the back of my car and then worrying the whole time if it was going to fall off or get stolen. The Honda van was $10,000 LESS than the Honda Pilot or Pickup with comparable equipment."

Styling

How it looks inside and out

What Owners Say

"Good styling, but I miss the extra drawer that we have in the 2012 front dash"

Anonymous, NC (2016 Honda Odyssey)

"Love the interior styling and various compartments in doors, console, below screens on dashboard in which to put items-from pencils to phone charger. Would have liked two console compartments- one deep and one shallow for pencils, sunglasses, small pad of paper and pen, etc. However top of console has upright sides about 1" high. I bought an office desk tray that fits there very well and has 2-3" sides. I place the above items in it plus a cube shaped box of tissues. I don't love the "preg"

"Its styling sets it apart from other mini-vans. IMO it looks more like a car than a traditional mini-van. The only thing that I would change would be to square off the upper rear hatch area to increase storage height."
