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.

Why you should buy the Honda Odyssey!

2012 Honda Odyssey LX

This is our second Honda Odyssey minivan. We have not been disappointed in the least. It is spacious and comfortable. The second row adjusts easily for passengers in the third row to get in and out with ease. The third rows fold easily and quickly into the floor to stow seats. This makes a perfect amount of room to take bikes -land a cooler to the park for family outing. The only money we have had to put into the van have been on maintenance things like... tires, brakes, rotors. Keep in mind we have almost 150,000 miles on the van so that is incredible. We recommend this van to anyone who will listen!

Must have van for large family

2012 Honda Odyssey LX

As a family of 7, the Honda Odyssey is a must. A wonderful feature is the buttons that open sliding doors and trunk. Having sliding doors is a great way to ensure kids won't open car door into another car or get fingers slammed in a door. We can't believe how much trunk space there is. We can fit strollers, wagon, sports equipment, cooler and more! There are 6 cup holders too! There is a cool box that keeps snacks and drinks cool while we are traveling. I wouldn't think of owning any other van!

Great reliable car with fun features!

2012 Honda Odyssey LX

I love my Honda Odyssey! It is a very reliable, comfortable, and spacious car. It can fit 4 car seats from a rear facing to forward facing to a booster and still leave space between them. I know my kids love the DVD feature for long road trips. It hasn't left us stranded yet! There is plenty of trunk room in the back and can fold up the back row for more space. I wish ours had the GPS feature in the car but we have other devices for that. But overall we've enjoyed having our Honda!

The Honda Odyssey: Space for Life

2012 Honda Odyssey LX

The vehicle has been running mostly without problems and has about one hundred and ninety thousand miles on it. Now I'm starting to have some problems with an oil leak and I had a broken relay that I had to get fixed, but other than that it has been very reliable. I like the amount of storage space it has, and it's also very good for sleeping in, which I like because I like to go to festivals and camp in it.

Honda odyssey summary on what I like about it.

2012 Honda Odyssey LX

The Honda odyssey is a perfect van for families with kids and traveling family .I love the seat set up and how they can move for whatever your day has you doing from grocery shopping to going to the beach this van is very versatile. There have been no problems other than normal wear and tear but I keep up on all my oil changes and maintenance. This van is very reliable.

Comfort and roomy van for families

2012 Honda Odyssey LX

The automatic doors are great, especially when the kids forget to close the doors. There is tons of leg room in the second and third rows. There is a removable seat in the middle of the second row. Cup holders are placed next to it within arm length of each seat. The steering wheel has buttons to control the stereo'both volume and channel selection.

I love my car. I will be upgrading to a newer version soon.

2012 Honda Odyssey LX

The automatic doors are a dream! They are a must have for busy Mom's. There is so much space inside the car and a lot of room for extra people. Also there is a lot of trunk space for groceries and sporting activities. Nothing bad to say! I've never had a problem and I've owned this car for 4 years. I'll be upgraded to the newer model soon.

Excellent family vehicle!

2012 Honda Odyssey LX

Great vehicle for families, the sliding side doors makes getting in and out for my kids really easy. Plenty of room in all three rows, I love how the back row can fold down for extra cargo space. I like how the driver seat can add extra cushion for your back and the heated seats are relaxing. The amount of cup holders is great,

- Sarah A

Love our Honda and feel secure with our purchase.

2012 Honda Odyssey LX

It is a perfect car when we have the children and grandchildren, we only need to take one vehicle and it is roomy and comfortable. We feel safe and secure driving this vehicle, and have never been sorry for purchasing it. We have bought several different kinds of Honda's over the years and have never been disappointed.

You Can Rely in the Odyssey

2012 Honda Odyssey LX

No major issues to date. I bought the vehicle used with 100k miles on it. This is my second Odyssey. I had 250k miles on its predecessor and it never had any major issues. I do maintain my vehicles with recommended service and regular oil changes. The Odyssey seats 8 comfortably, including my adult sons.

The Best Van Around, has everything you need for a family vehicle!

2012 Honda Odyssey LX

I love our Honda Odyssey. It has great gas mileage, it is comfortable, fits both my kids and their friends or family when visiting. We've even camped in it before. Has plenty of storage, love how the back seats fold down. I only wish we would have gotten the newer model with the automatic doors.

- Kristen B

Comfortable rods and dependable.

2012 Honda Odyssey LX

I have owned this vehicle for three years and has been very dependable. Like the fact that it has dual sliding doors because makes it easier with the kids. Having the auto door opener is also helpful with kids and loading groceries. Overall I have been very satisfied with this vehicle.

My Favorite Honda Vehicle

2012 Honda Odyssey LX

I love my Honda Odyssey! It's incredibly comfortable and spacious! It drives nicely and smoothly and I love the backup camera. The electronic dashboard is an amazingly helpful feature that I use all the time and I particularly love the speed dial feature. I highly recommend this car!

The odd-esy car (off): The car you have to be grateful for

2012 Honda Odyssey LX

It performs pretty well. I just don't like the older appliances. The fact that it does not have Bluetooth, is saddening. It just breaks my heart. I wish I could have the doors become more advanced. Overall it's the only biggest car that I have. Be grateful for what you have children.

My Experience with the Honda Odyssey

2012 Honda Odyssey LX

We have been driving this vehicle since 2014 when we purchased it from a private party. Very comfortable for up to 8 people. Included DVD player and leather seats. Sunroof and Bluetooth. Heavy body for safety. Nice cargo area and good visibility. Backup camera is nice.
