Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"Windshield wiper controls - when set to intermittent they sometimes are intermittent and quite often speed up to the fastest speed on their own. Dealer can not figure it out. They submitted a problem report to the factory but we have not heard back from them concerning this in over 6 months."

Richard E., AR (2017 Honda Odyssey)

"Handling is precise and the turning circle is very small for a 21 foot vehicle. Acceleration is more than adequate."

George H., FL (2017 Honda Odyssey)

"exc both"

Anonymous, FL (2017 Honda Odyssey)

"It drives nice. It shifts hard, really jerks. Dealer says it is preforming like it is supposed to."

Christopher R., IL (2017 Honda Odyssey)

"Surprisingly peppy, smooth ride, back up camera and right side camera view when turning right, helps see bicycles coming up on right side"

Anonymous, ON (2017 Honda Odyssey)

Thomas T., CA (2017 Honda Odyssey)

"Good handling despite the size, good steering feedback, vehicle feels and handles securely even when cornering."

Anonymous, CA (2017 Honda Odyssey)

"Far and away the best ride and handling of all the minivans I have driven. The Odyssey drive feel is sedan-like from suspension, to acceleration, and even cornering (mostly). Handling is smooth without being splashy, acceleration is surprisingly snappy."

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

Jacob V., TX (2017 Honda Odyssey)

"With all of the things included on this Honda that I don't use... it would have been nice to have an outdoor thermometer to indicate the temperature outside."

Anonymous, FL (2017 Honda Odyssey)

"I owned a 2007 Odyssey and loved it, so I bought a 2017. I do feel I received the same quality vehicle, everything feels cheap. The center console has a scratch from my cell phone being dropped on it. The middle captains chairs no longer have inside arm rests. The front door seals fell off two weeks after purchase. Just a bunch of little things that make the vehicle feel cheap."
