Awesome, reliable, lots of seat flexibility options.

2008 Honda Odyssey EX

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.

It is an excellent vehicle for our family of seven.

2008 Honda Odyssey EX

Our 2008 Honda odyssey has proven reliable for our family of seven. It has taken us on road trips and is the main vehicle for daily commute to work for my boyfriend. Its automatic back doors make it easy for our kids to have the independence of being able to get in the car by themselves. It allows plenty of legroom for both mine and my boyfriends tall frames. In the time we have had this vehicle, we have had no problems with it.

Dependable transportation and convenient family oriented options. 12 cup holders

2008 Honda Odyssey EX

It is very reliable, but the comfort features are low. Seats are manually adjusted and don't slide back very far to accommodate long legs. Lots of storage compartments and cup holders. While it does have two ports for charging phones or other devices, it doesn't work when van is turned off, which has been a hassle. Rear seats recline and store in the floor which has been great to haul items for trips or purchases.

The Transporter of the Family

2008 Honda Odyssey EX

My Odyssey is very reliable. It has never given me any major issues and I've had it for over 5 years. The factory speakers work great so I haven't had the need to change any of the musical equipment. The only issue is the driver passenger door does get stuck and hard to open occasionally, but a good tug usually does the trick.

For being 11 years old is has held up very nice. Reliable and a classic choice.

2008 Honda Odyssey EX

Drives nice. Has nice seats and has held up nice. Getting out of date. It does have little things that are strange. The automatic doors mess up sometime. Feels safe to drive and lasts a long time. Has plenty of room for many people. Has a seat that can be removed which is very nice. Easy to clean. Nice radio and speakers.

The Odyssey is a great family vehicle!

2008 Honda Odyssey EX

We really love our Honda Odyssey! We got it right before our fourth child was born, so it was a breath of fresh air to have all the space and compartments available for my kids! However, switching over from a AWD car has been an adjustment as well as the increase of gas consumption! But all in all, we love it!

Life after Ten Years Honda Odyssey

2008 Honda Odyssey EX

Overall the car has been very reliable. Just recently the motor mounts broke and needed to be replaced. Also, just this past year both sliding doors no longer work. The air conditioner has need repair but all after the car turned ten years old. Other than that it has only required regular maintenance.

- Debbie D

We Love the Honda Odyssey!

2008 Honda Odyssey EX

The Odyssey has great features! We love the automatic doors, DVD player, large trunk space and optional middle seat between the bucket seats. We have had a few issues with it, but mostly due to the car being 10 years old. The majority of the problems have been relatively small and not a big deal.

Honda odyssey seating for 8.

2008 Honda Odyssey EX

The dual sliding door are key for families with young kids. There are cup holders in the front, third row and on the door bases. The eight seat can be put in and removed easily. The ability to move the middle seats together and apart gives you searing and back row entry options.

- Brandy G

This is a great family vehicle!

2008 Honda Odyssey EX

This is a great vehicle. Lots of room for kids, car seats, carpools, trips. It gets good gas mileage and has not had any major problems. I do feel like it's getting a little ragged because it's over 10 years old and over 150K miles. But I can probably fix those little things.

Practical and reliable van

2008 Honda Odyssey EX

The van is Good quality, convenient, durable, family friendly, and most of all highly reliable. It has tons of space, and is super. versatile. It's good value for the money. Love how practical it is for this stage of life with young kids. Even used, it is a fabulous vehicle.

2008 Honda Odyssey EX - very roomy

2008 Honda Odyssey EX

I do not have many problems with my van. I like it because it has so much room, especially when you put the seats down. I have not had many maintenance issues outside the norm so it has been very reliable. I would buy another one if I were looking for a minivan.
