Odyssey - comfortable - YES, reliable - NO by MIdwest Van owner on 03/23/2012. Trim: 2007 Honda Odyssey EX-L w/ DVD, Owned 5 years.
Pros: Very comfortable ride and plenty of power. Great vacation vehicle for the family!
Cons: Constant transmission and torque converter problems. Honda replaced the torque converter 3 times by 75K miles. Items were covered even though the warranty had expired. Highway MPG are never as high as the EPA rating. Problems with paint chipping on the hood and front fascia. No automatic headlights was another disappointment. The salesman said Honda was slow to adopt new technology - I had a 92 Buick with automatic headlights, Honda couldn't figure it out 15 years later? Honda has a reputation of being more reliable than American vehicles - It doesn't live up to that reputation in mini-vans.
Overall review: The ride and comfort are very good. The low highway MPG and the constant transmission problems in this van were very disappointing. Honda may be reliable in engines, but the transmission was a constant source of problems. I had GM and Chrysler vans that had transmission problems, but not until they were past 100K miles.

the worst min-van I've ever driven, and I've owned 4 different brands by Norm from Sc. on 03/11/2011. Trim: 2007 Honda Odyssey EX-L, Owned 4 years.
Pros: NOT ANY THING
Cons: I have had many problems with this car, from stearing, suspention and transmission. The ride after a few 1000 miles become very bad. The dealors are not very helpful. I would not buy another Honda Odyssey, or recommend one to any one. Do an on line check before you even thank about buying a Odyssey. I have been the car business for 40 yrs, driving all kinds of cars, this car is on fun to drive.
Overall review: Very unsatisfied customer

"Don't Buy It" by A from NJ on 01/09/2012. Trim: 2007 Honda Odyssey EX, Owned 2 years.
Pros: Comfortable, I like the van for loading and unlaoding, but this pertains to all vans. Visibility is better than expected.
Cons: Mileage is a disaster, Am a conservative driver and get only 13-14 mpg. My prev. car, a Chevy sedan I actually got more mpg than the sticker said. Vibration in transmission, dealer kept car a whole day and said they couldn't duplicate it. But I rec'd a recall from Honda for the transmission vibration. The vibration is very severe at tiimes. The power steering is very hard at times, so far only at low speeds. Also rec'd a recall from Honda on the power steering pump, so they extended the warranty to 7 years. .It's a bit of a rough ride even on good pavement.
Overall review: It's a comfortable enough ride, but so was my Chevy. Problem with the transmission, power steering and gas consumption..
