The Honda Odyssey is the ideal family vehicle.

As a busy mom of 4, my Honda Odyssey is the perfect vehicle. It is roomy and the seats can be arranged any way I desire depending on the day and what we are doing. I love the cabin watch feature, especially with having an 8 month old baby. I can keep an eye on her. Especially when I do not want her to fall asleep to nap in the car. I tell her sisters to keep her awake. The DVD player has been a lifesaver as well for long trips with the girls. The dashboard is easy to use. I love the Bluetooth technology so we can control music from my phone. Overall, I would recommend the Honda Odyssey to anyone looking for a great family vehicle!

Honda is always a fave, but the minivans have come a long way!

I've always been a fan of Honda for the reliability factor. Though I've never wanted a mini-van, I couldn't be happier with it. They've come a long way. Great power, awesome tech, and fantastic aesthetics. My only gripe is that my front parking sensors don't seem to work very often and videos still don't ever play from a thumb drive, although it's supposed to. The first month we owned the car, I drove my two kids from Florida to Kentucky ... it was fabulous on gas and we were all comfortable and happy as we could be on such a long trip!

Beautiful smooth and cozy ride for the whole family

I love this van. We have 3 small kids and a lot of stuff (strollers, scooters, bikes, basketballs soccer balls all sorts of bags and things) the minivan hold everything with no issues. Drives safe and smooth on the road. A lot of bells and whistles. Kids watch the DVD and all is well. Lots of room even for friends to come along. The thing I don't like is how the hands free tailgate should open with your keys in the pocket yet it never does it's not easy either so I hate that feature. It also uses a lot of gas very quickly.
