ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION
2005 Honda Odyssey

Kimbette Fenol: Although Honda didn't invent the minivan, this Honda Odyssey is the closest thing to perfection with two sliding doors.

Ryan Lee: The 2005 to 2010 Odyssey has power, tons of interior space, comfort and great resale value. Plus a 3.5-liter V6 engine, rated at around 244 horsepower, depending on which year you choose.

Kimbette Fenol: And the Odyssey is very roomy. Seven passengers can fit comfortably inside, with captain's chairs in the first and second row, and a third-row bench seat that folds flush to the floor for extra cargo space.

Ryan Lee: Every Honda comes with standard safety equipment like anti-lock brakes, traction and stability control, front and side airbags, plus side-curtain airbags for rear passengers.

In addition to its familiar lineup of LX, EX, and EX-L models, Honda added an upscale Touring edition for 2006.

Ryan Lee: All 2005 to 2010 Odysseys come well equipped regardless of which year or trim you're considering. Even the entry level LX has standard air conditioning, power windows, locks and mirrors, cruise control and wheel covers.

Kimbette Fenol: The EX adds alloy wheels, stowable second-row seats, plus an eighth jump seat between the second-row captain chairs.

Ryan Lee: Plus power sliding doors and a 6-disc CD changer. The EX-L adds heated leather seats, and a power sunroof, plus Honda's Variable Cylinder Management system, which helps the Odyssey get 17 miles per gallon in town and 26 on the highway for the 2005 and 2006 models. Not bad for a minivan.

Ryan Lee: The Touring model includes a power tailgate, three-zone automatic climate control, fog lights, backup sensors, power-adjustable pedals, and 17-inch wheels with run-flat tires - all standard. The only options are a rear-seat DVD entertainment center and a navigation system.

Kimbette Fenol: A minivan isn't a car, but the Odyssey does handle well and the steering is both accurate and nicely weighted.

Ryan Lee: Every year and model Odyssey from 2005 to 2010 has received the government's highest safety rating for frontal, off-set, and side-impact crash tests. Something else that's nice to know is that there've been very few recalls for this version of the Odyssey - some sensor replacements the first year, one for an error in the owner's manual in 2006, and a possible defect in the way brake hoses were installed. Keep in mind that dealers must make any fixes that haven't yet been performed free of charge.

Kimbette Fenol: Although no recall was issued, there have been complaints about ride quality as well as premature wear of the run-flat tires on the Touring model. And you can't change them without replacing the factory rims.

Ryan Lee: And those can cost quite a bit, so that's something to keep in mind.

Kimbette Fenol: Anyone looking for a good used minivan will find a lot to like in the Odyssey but there are other good models out there. The Kia Sedona is big and powerful, and since it doesn't hold its value well, you can likely get a Sedona with lots of desirable features for a much lower price.

Ryan Lee: The Dodge Grand Caravan has more engine choices, but only one of them matches Honda's horsepower. The Toyota Sienna comes close for reliability and resale value. It isn't quite as roomy, but can be had with all-wheel drive, which the Odyssey doesn't offer.

Kimbette Fenol: Overall, AutoTrader recommends the EX or EX-L Odyssey from 2008 through 2010.

Ryan Lee: Or the Touring model without the run-flat tires.

Kimbette Fenol: Go for the backup camera if possible, even if you have to pay more. Like all minivans, there's a big blind spot back there.
