Reviewed: 2006 Honda Odyssey

4dr Minivan, ext. 244-horsepower 3.5L V6 w/DoD 5-speed automatic FWD

Why the 2006 Honda Odyssey?

Brand reputation & image

Perception of quality leads to high resale value


It handles like a sedan with minimal body roll. Adequate power and fuel economy.

Discounts & incentives

Huge factory rebates and attractive finance offers right now due to new body style

Past personal experience

Only average reliability. Does not represent good value given high initial price vs competition

Why Not the 2006 Honda Odyssey?

Reliability & durability

Expensive and frequent repairs. Too many uncommon defects occur at warranty expiry. Honda Plus extended warranty covers everything that never wears out!


Very noisy in cabin at highway speed. Front windows creak and rattle horribly. Rear tailgate also shifts and makes noises over bumps. Engine noise is a little loud inside cabin.

Audio & nav systems

They keep breaking! CD player was DOA. Too bad I never tried it until just after the warranty expired.

Past personal experience

Dealing with Honda over warranty issues at/near expiration. Expensive and frequent repairs.
