Family Favorite: The tale of a car that has faithfully served for over a decade.

2005 Honda Odyssey LX

While lacking some of the modern safety features, my 2005 Honda Odyssey is a tried-and-true machine that had faithfully served my family for many years. We've always been careful to keep it well maintained, and so have never had cause to complain or worry about the performance or reliability of the vehicle in the 10+ years that we've had it. The leather seats are starting fall apart, and sometimes we've had trouble maintaining the air conditioning, but these are only result of long years of gradual wear and tear. The eight seats in this vehicle have always been a boon to my large family. All-in-all, a wonderful car, and highly recommended by everyone in my family.

Love Our Honda Odyssey Minivan

2005 Honda Odyssey LX

My husband and I have really enjoyed our Honda Odyssey minivan. It has been a very reliable vehicle, as well as super useful to haul things. We love the option of the back seats folding into the floor and the ability, if needed, to also remove the second row of seats. When we did this I was able to move my daughter to Washington DC more easily than if I would have had a truck. We are going to be getting a new vehicle in the future, and though we no longer have children like we did when we originally purchased this one, we are considering another Honda Odyssey.

The drop trunk was a life saver

2005 Honda Odyssey LX

My Odyssey Van is a very comfortable ride. When I am ready for my next car it will be on the Odyssey Van . We'd have had minimal repairs other than everyday wear and tear. As funny as it sounds the amount of cup holders in this vehicle is amazing. We see there is no wasted space in this car. A stroller fits perfectly in the dropped trunk and the little secret compartments are very helpful. There is a circular one in the 2nd row and pull out drawer underneath the passenger seat

Found out the key does multiple items when unlocking through the door.

2005 Honda Odyssey LX

It's a very reliable vehicle. The third row seating comes in handy. I love that it has a built in DVD player so I can keep my children entertained. It's very comfortable and spacious. Going on long road trips are a breeze. It does have problem with the automatic doors. Sometimes they get stuck and/or do not close right. It's pretty decent on gas which is great because it is pure main vehicle. Overall I love this car! Even with the door problems it's still a great vehicle.

Honda Odyssey is the best minivan I've owned!

2005 Honda Odyssey LX

The Honda Odyssey is one of the best minivans I've ever had! It has been reliable, with very few breakdowns over the years. We have it serviced regularly, so it is in pristine condition. It's an older model, but it still works beautifully. The only problem I've had as it's gotten older is the automatic doors. They don't always register as being shut, so you have to hit the button once more to make the buzzer shut off. Other than that, it's really a great vehicle!

My Honda odyssey is the best vehicle I have ever had!

2005 Honda Odyssey LX

I absolutely love my Honda odyssey! I can honestly say that it is a pleasure to drive. Comfortable seats, spacious legroom, seats 7 comfortably, and has a nice roomy trunk space as well! One of my favorite features is the side doors. They slide back to open. Perfect for kids getting in and out! I love the controls and all of the levers and buttons. I live the DVD player for the kids on long car rides. All in all, it is the best vehicle that I have ever owned!

Honda Odyssey is a great buy!

2005 Honda Odyssey LX

I love the Honda odyssey. It has a DVD player in the back for my kids which is awesome. It had a lot of horsepower which my husband is a huge fan of. The doors open and close with a button or pulling on the handles. Three rows of seating with four captain chairs and a bench in the back. You can customize the seating of the two back passenger captain chairs. Heated seats is a plus for the winter.

- Sherry B

Comfy for the entire family

2005 Honda Odyssey LX

Door doesn't always close nicely when shutting it. Sometimes a bell inside goes off and you have to turn off the door closing automatically button. Besides that this van is spot on. It is comfortable safe and reliable. The kids enjoy the movie player and heated seats and leather seats. The hubs and I enjoy the radio and heated leather seats. There is so much room and very comfortable.

Old vehicle, still chugging

2005 Honda Odyssey LX

We have a pre-owned Honda Odyssey with leather seats. The leather has cracked in places, but nothing terrible. We love the performance of this van, even at 250,000 miles. We have had a problem with the passenger side sliding door that we haven't been able to fix ourselves and we've been told by our regular shop that we'll need to take it to the dealership in order to get it fixed.

- Abigail W

Nothing bad to say about this car overall satisfied.

2005 Honda Odyssey LX

My vehicle runs very well. Have had it for 3 years now and haven't had any major issues with it except for normal wear and tear. Pretty easy on gas. Very easy getting kids in and out of. I honestly have nothing bad to say about this car at all. As of right now it does have a lot of miles on it but still continues to impress me.

- Heather M

The vehicle that grows with your family

2005 Honda Odyssey LX

Our Odyssey is perfect for a family of 5. It has high mileage because we have traveled so much but it shows no signs of slowing down. . It has leather seats and capability to watch movies. It has been perfect as our children have grown. It has grown with us. As long as you do proper maintenance it is reliable!

- Sheila W

Pretty good 2005 Honda Odyssey

2005 Honda Odyssey LX

I love how much storage space there is in the trunk. You can put the 3rd row seats down for more space. I like the leather interior. I do not like that there is no Bluetooth or aux cord. The windows in my van do not work. There is plenty of legroom! Installing a car seat in this van can be pretty difficult.

2005 Honda Odyssey review

2005 Honda Odyssey LX

This car doesn't have many bells and whistles but it's a great, reliable car that get us safely where we need to go. Only issue is with the air conditioning which does run out of coolant every now and then. Still, it is a great car that has done a great job getting my family from place to place

- Erin M

Everything has good and bad, only one bad from my prospective.

2005 Honda Odyssey LX

The electronic doors break easily, but everything else is awesome. It has a DVD player that helps with kids on long drives, 6 disc CD player, and a lot of cup holders. LoL. There is even a hideaway spot under the floor for emergencies. Controls of stations and volume on the steering wheel.

- Felicia J

Overall, my vehicle is an amazing family pick!

2005 Honda Odyssey LX

I personally love this van as it is a family vehicle and can fit all my family members and friends. The sunroof is my favorite part. I enjoy opening it in the summer for a nice summer breeze. My van comes with a TV as well and I am able to play some movies on the road.

- Jennifer R

Great vehicle if you have children!

2005 Honda Odyssey LX

We love our van, we've had some mechanical issues with our passenger back door but it is a 2005 so some wear and tear is to be expected. There is so much room in the back and trunk! It is the perfect vehicle for a family! A car seat fits great in the bucket seat.

- Brett A

Decent car for a growing family.

2005 Honda Odyssey LX

It's a great car. Relatively good gas mileage considering its size. Runs smoothly and efficiently. It's got pretty good trunk space but it is a little tough to get in and out of the back row seats, and even harder to get children in and out of there.
