Honda Odyssey- Perfect vehicle for parents

I absolutely love my Honda Odyssey. The remote open sliding doors on both sides is very convenient for kids, and/or loading groceries/other goods in a hurry. The dvd player located right behind the two front seats is very nice, and I love that it can be used for occupants in the back seats at the same time that the radio/cd/aux player can be used for the front seats. This saves my sanity on longer trips, and allows me to listen to what I'd like while my children) can watch movies. The only thing i would change is to add a remote open button for the back hatch, but it's not something that greatly bothers me.

Awesome, reliable, lots of seat flexibility options.

Love my Honda odyssey. Best car/minivan ever. Once we had our third child buying the minivan was the next option. I have had my car for over 10 years now and have had no maintenance issues at all. I am at almost 100,000 miles and it is still running very well. Love how easy it is to move the seats around and remove them. The third row seating is perfect for large family car rides. I can also pop down half of the third row and pack up for the beach/camping/luggage..Etc. I highly recommend the Honda odyssey. I would definitely buy it again.

The Honda odyssey is so roomy!

We have enjoyed our Honda odyssey. We have plenty of room for traveling with a family of 5. We have gone on many family vacations in the past 10 years and this van has been perfect for traveling. It had lots of space and is easy to move around in the vehicle. It has room for 8 passengers and a large spacious trunk. There are lots of cup holders in our van as well. We have had ac issues in the past year and half, but the car is older. I haven't found another van that is as roomy as the Honda odyssey.
