    2005 Honda Odyssey Review Summaries

    What reviewers liked most about the Honda Odyssey

    • Sheetmetal now appears shrink-wrapped-indeed, panel gaps have been reduced by up to 1.5 millimeters-giving the Odyssey an athletic stance that is emphasized by a tauter rear end and a sportier front fascia with dual projector-beam headlights.

      - Car and Driver
    • Quieter, more spacious and offers even more innovative features than before, including increased seating configurations and unique storage solutions.

      - Edmunds.com
    • Improved car-like ride and handling, a more powerful and fuel efficient 255-horsepower V6 engine, and a clever seating system that can accommodate up to eight passengers.

      - New Car Test Drive

    What reviewers liked least about the Honda Odyssey

    • Still doesn't offer four-wheel drive.

      - Car and Driver
    • High demand forces you to pay sticker price or above.

      - Edmunds.com
    • There is still some on-center steering slack. You can turn the steering wheel a few degrees in either direction before the vehicle starts to move.

    Honda Odyssey Comparisons

    • The second-row captain's chairs can't be folded into the floor a'la Dodge Caravan's Stow 'n Go, but they are removable (a relatively easy operation of flipping a couple of latches and lifting what feels like a medium-sized ahi tuna).

      - Car and Driver
    • But just when the others were getting a jump, Honda again trumps the competition with the all-new 2005 Odyssey.

      - Edmunds.com
    • Turning radius is the tightest of any minivan, making it an easy to make U-turns and maneuver in parking lots.

      - New Car Test Drive
    • Even though the old Odyssey kept its bragging rights as the most powerful minivan during its four-year reign, Honda has increased the power output in the new van by 15 horsepower.

      - The Car Connection
    • The nav system has a nice big eight-inch screen, the biggest in a minivan, located up high in the center of the dashboard for easy viewing.

    Best one-liner about the Honda Odyssey

    • A mobile room of serenity.

      - Car and Driver
    • Are the domestic manufacturers giving up and handing [the minivan market] over to the imports? Judging by the all-new 2005 Honda Odyssey the answer is yes.
