Great vehicle for hauling people as well as huge amounts of stuff. Room galore.

2012 Honda Odyssey EX

Aside from every Honda I've ever owned being reliable, I find the comfort level of the seats to be better than those of comparable minivans. It's ergonomically good in terms of drink holders, seat adjustment, access to things like gas tank, back hatch, & hood releases. The van is great for big loads. Without question, it holds more than any SUV I've ever thought about purchasing. The 2nd row of seats can be removed & the 3rd row easily flips to create a flatbed. Creating this much room has come in handy over and over. My family has outgrown the need for the minivan as a kid's passenger vehicle, but I will keep it specifically for the storage component. This Odyssey is less noisy (truck like) than my previous Odyssey, but it's still relatively noisy. It uses a key versus push starter, and one of the fobs recently physically broke from the attached key. Thank goodness for the backup fob.

Providing an extra hand when you have your hands full.

2012 Honda Odyssey

Our Honda makes getting around with two young children a breeze. The automatic doors and trunk are great when carrying a child. The collapsible third row means we have plenty of room for bringing everything a family of four could need on any adventure. The only service issues we have had with our Honda has been Honda issued recalls, which our local service center handled without issue. Six years in, the doors and trunk are starting to squeak when opening, but not to the point that we are concerned. We removed the center seat from the second row, so the kids can enter from the truck to get into their seats. This is great for when carrying bags. We just open the trunk, put the kids in, then the bags.

Honda Odyssey Van is a great investment to make life easier with small kids!

2012 Honda Odyssey LX

I really enjoy our Honda Odyssey. It's been really reliable over the past 5 years. The captains chairs in the back are easy to remove and customize your seating arrangement. The leather has held up well. The hands free sliding door is an amazing thing to own with 3 small kids. I would improve the storage in that model. I wish there were power ports for every seat so electronics could charge. I also wish there were cup holders for each seat. The seatbelt for the driver is too high for a petite person and it cuts my neck. I also wish there were tie down points in the car to secure baggage or things such as a dog crate.
