Family vehicle perfection.
2007 Honda Odyssey EX-L
What I look for in the perfect family vehicle is comfort, practicality and reliability. The Honda odyssey fulfills each of these requirements beautifully. I can fit my family of six perfectly (with room to spare) in its four bucket seats and back bench seat. The included jump seat that easily slides in between the middle bucket seats provides even more space. Attaching child car seats is a breeze with the built in seat clips. . The back seats also fold down very easily to make a completely flat surface for serious shopping trips. . For long trips the built in DVD player is a lifesaver! It has always functioned well and is easy to use. . We have owned our odyssey for over 7 years and have not had to do any major repair other than a simple front axle fix. Overall, the odyssey has been a superb investment for our family. . My only complaint is in regards to the automatic doors. They are sometimes finicky and do not shut when you pull the handle. I think the problem arose from allowing my young kids to shut the door. They pulled on them too hard and wore something out. Now I do it with the key remote and they work much better. . If our current Honda odyssey ever dies ( although I do not see that happening anytime soon) we will strongly consider purchasing another Honda odyssey.
