The Honda Odyssey touring is comfort, is equipped. Has Michelin pax system tires.

2008 Honda Odyssey

I own a 2008 Honda Odyssey touring. It is very comfortable and spacious for a family. Features: The features in my vehicle include FM/am radio, CD player with a CD player changer, captain chairs in the second row, capacity for 7 passengers, spacious trunk, entertainment system, sunroof, all leather seats, 16 cup holders, electric windows, electric sliding side doors with sensors, driver's and front passenger's seats have heaters, and GPS guidance with a large screen. The tires are special, they have the Michelin pax system. Reliability: This vehicle is very reliable and have had no major repairs, only those that are needed with wear such as battery and alternator change. Performance: It gives me about 18 miles per gallon in the city. It drives smoothly and performs good. Problems: The biggest problem that I have encountered with my the vehicle are the tires. They are specialty made and not found anywhere other than the dealership. When the time came to change the tires, I was unable to find anyone that had them except the Honda dealer and they are very pricey since they have to be Michelin pax system. Because of this, I decided to change the tires but the wheels are also a special size, they are metric and no tire would fit them. I found out many other owners have changed the wheels to conventional sizes. After a lot of researching, I found the closest match for the wheels and tires. My next huddle was to find someone to do it. I called every place I found but got the same answer, because it had the pax system, they wouldn't touch it and referred me back to the Honda dealership. I was finally able to find a tire place that removed the wheels that I had and changed it to a conventional size to be able to use regular tires.

Driving Odyssey: good family van to drive and to haul with.

2008 Honda Odyssey

Does not seem to blow hot air out the heater it does heat up and gets warm takes a while. The heated seats take a while to heat up and then they cool back down was disappointed about that. I have a bad back I have to use an extra back support cushion. Overall I do like the van a lot performance is very good and reliable. It rides good have taken it on some road trips. It's not that good on gas mileage though. Only major part that I had problems with was the power steering pump needed replaced. I do love the sun/moonroof my favorite part of the van, like that I have Sirius radio, I liked all my electric windows and I can lock back windows. I like that my doors are on a timer and will lock on there own when unlocking with remote, I like the anti-theft a good feature, it does pickup and goes good, does well in the snow. I do not like my back-up camera is in the rearview mirror it can be turned off I wish the camera was on the dash like newer vehicles. Lots off room to haul things the back seats fold into the floor great for hauling the second row seats do come out if you want more room for hauling. Over all it is a good van.

Reliable and Versatile Family Van

2008 Honda Odyssey LX

This is a pretty comfortable car, with a lot of versatility. It carries up to 8 people, through the middle seat in the center row is very narrow, and not appropriate for a child's car seat, or most adults. The back row can be folded down to carry luggage for a big trip, with enough room still for 5 people. Or partially folded down to allow for 1 or 2 more passengers. Middle row can also be removed for carrying furniture, etc. I have had to make very few repairs. Downsides include: a lot of blind spots for shorter drivers, door gaskets which deteriorated after just a few years, sliding door motors which have had to be replaced, and an expensive steering wheel part which had to be replaced. I like that oil life is displayed on dashboard. The sound system is ok, and mine still has a CD player which is great for books on CD for long trips. There is a lot of headroom in this minivan. Leg room is pretty good except for very tall people. My husband who is 6' 7' only fits in driver seat, and that is still pretty tight. Overall I would say this is a pretty reliable vehicle. We have been pretty happy with it for almost 10 years.
