Benefits of Driving a 2008 Honda Odyssey Van

With a refined powertrain, prolific passenger capacity, a folding third-row seat, and clutch of beverage holders, Honda's 2008 Odyssey meets all of the American minivan driver benchmarks. To differentiate itself from the rest of the segment, Honda adds its i-VTEC technology, available active noise cancellation and leather seating, and superior build quality and reliability, making it an excellent value.

What's new for 2008?

The 2008 Honda Odyssey sees the addition of auxiliary audio input jacks, daytime running lights, and programmable power door locks. Dual-zone climate control goes to tri-zone on the EX, EX-L, and Touring models, and the EX-L now includes an auto-dimming rearview mirror. Run-flat tires are no longer standard equipment on the Touring, but navigation and Bluetooth are.

Model Strengths

  • Reliability
  • powerful V6
  • acres of comfortable interior space.

Model Review

All Odysseys get a 3.5L V6, the same engine that's in Honda's Ridgeline. On the base Odyssey, it puts out 244 horsepower and 240 lb-feet of torque, and is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. The Odyssey features plenty of minivan comfort features such as dual sliding doors, a retractable center tray table, and beverage holders galore. Remote keyless entry is standard, as is a folding third-row seat, which Honda calls 'Magic Seat' because it folds into the floor with one smooth motion. Safety features include anti-lock brakes and side-impact air bags with a roll-over sensor.

2008 Honda Odyssey: What's New

Source: The Car Connection

Honda's Odyssey gets new styling inside and out for the 2008 model year, along with a newly updated V-6 engine with better fuel economy.

The exterior changes are limited to a new grille and a new front bumper. Inside, new colors and textures on the dash are combined with premium fabric on the LX and EX models.

Under the hood, the Odyssey's standard 3.5-liter VTEC V-6 engine delivers 244 horsepower and 16/23 mpg fuel economy. The upgraded version of that engine gets cylinder deactivation technology, which shuts down half of the cylinders at cruising speeds for added fuel efficiency at 17/25 mpg, though it makes 241 hp, less than the base engine. A five-speed automatic transmission is standard with either engine.

The Odyssey, like all other Honda vehicles, comes standard with stability and traction control, in addition to side and curtain airbags. It also comes in a variety of trim levels - LX, EX, EX-L and top-of-the-line Touring. Power sliding doors are standard on all but base LX models. Air conditioning and a 60/40 split third-row "Magic Seat" are standard on the base LX.

This year, the second-row "PlusOne" seat, which is standard on the top three trim levels, gets a new integrated storage bin. The PlusOne seat is now standard on the Touring edition, making it an eight-passenger vehicle.

On the entertainment side of things, the Odyssey now comes standard with an MP3-capable CD player and an auxiliary jack for MP3 players. Bluetooth is available on Touring editions; a rearview camera is now standard on EX-L models; and memory side mirrors are now standard on the touring. A power front passenger seat is also standard for 2008 on the EX-L and Touring models.

A DVD entertainment system with wireless surround-sound headphones and a voice-activated navigation system that incorporates both a rearview video camera and XM Satellite Radio are optional on most Odysseys.

Prices for the 2008 Odyssey start from $25,680, not including destination charges.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.

Original Warranty  help
Original Warranty
An original warranty is the warranty associated with a vehicle when it is brand new. In addition to the original warranty, select items, like tires, are typically covered by respective manufacturers. Also, an act of Federal law sometimes provides protection for certain components, like emissions equipment.
The original warranty is often broken down into multiple sections, including:
Basic Warranty:
Typically covers everything except for parts that wear out through normal use of the vehicle. Examples of non-covered items are brake pads, wiper blades and filters.
Drivetrain Warranty:
This warranty covers items the basic warranty does not protect. Wear and tear items such as hoses will not be covered, but key items like the engine, transmission, drive axles and driveshaft often will be.
Roadside Assistance:
The level of service differs greatly with this warranty, but many manufacturers offer a toll-free number that helps provide assistance in case you run out of gas, get a flat tire or lock your keys in the car.
Corrosion Warranty:
This warranty focuses on protecting you from holes caused by rust or corrosion in your vehicle's sheet metal.
Please check the owner's manual, visit a local dealership or look at the manufacturer's website to learn more about the specifics of the warranties that apply to a vehicle.

Basic 3 Years/36,000 Miles
Drivetrain 5 Years/60,000 Miles
Corrosion 5 Years/Unlimited Miles

Honda Certified Pre-Owned Warranty  help
Certified Pre-Owned Warranty
To be eligible for Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) status, vehicles generally must be recent models with relatively low mileage. CPO vehicles must also pass a detailed inspection, outlined by the manufacturer, which is measured by the number of inspected points.
Warranty coverage can vary from one manufacturer to the next. While most certified pre-owned programs transfer and extend the existing new car warranty terms, others offer a warranty that simply represents an additional year and mileage value. Always check with the manufacturer for the specific warranties they offer.
Common features and benefits of Certified Pre-Owned warranties include:
Age/Mileage Eligibility
To even be considered for certification, a car must be a recent model year and have limited mileage. The exact requirements are established by individual manufacturers.
Lease Term Certified
Some manufacturers offer certified pre-owned cars for lease. The length of the lease is often shorter than a new car lease, but it will cost you less.
Point Inspection
These inspections entail a comprehensive vehicle test to ensure that all parts are in excellent working order. The point inspection list is simply a numbered list of exactly what parts of the car are examined. While many inspections range from a 70- to 150-point checklist, most are very similar and are performed using strict guidelines. Ask your local dealer about specific details.
Return/Exchange Program
Some manufacturers offer a very limited return or exchange period. Find out if you will get the sales tax and licensing/registration fees back should you return or exchange the car.
Roadside Assistance
Most certified pre-owned programs offer free roadside service in case your car breaks down while still under warranty.
Special Financing
Reduced-rate loans are available through many certified pre-owned programs. Manufacturer-backed inspections and warranties help eliminate the risks involved with buying pre-owned, so buyers who qualify can take advantage of the great offers.
Transferable Warranty
When a new car warranty transfers with the certification of the car and remains eligible for the next owner, it is known as a transferable warranty. Once the original transferable warranty expires, an extended warranty takes effect.
Warranty Deductible
This is the amount for which you are responsible when repair work is performed under the warranty. Some manufacturers require a deductible while others don't, so always ask.

Honda Certified Used Car Limited Warranty extends the non-powertrain coverage by 1 year/12,000 miles from the date of purchase or expiration of new car warranty date. In addition, Honda Certified Used Car Limited Warranty extends the powertrain coverage to 7 years/100,000 miles.
Age/Mileage Eligibility Model Years 2010-2015 with less than 80,000 miles
Lease Term Certified No
Point Inspection 182
Return/Exchange Program No
Roadside Assistance No
Special Financing Yes
Transferrable Warranty Yes
Warranty Deductible $0
