Our Fourth ODYSSEY

We purchased a 2016 Elite (Certifiex) after owning 3 second generation Odysseys 1999/2001/2003 (22 years and almost 300k miles without a single problem). We gave our 2003 to our son who has a newborn and purchased Elite. I was never real big on the styling and and basically refused to look at them until a few weeks ago until we found our Elite with low low miles. What an amazing vehicle we aquired. The ride, the comfort, the features and accessories are incredible. This is our 11th Honda and is by far thee best vehicle that we have purchased. We anticipate another Honda that will serve our family with stellar dependability.


Honda Odyssey

I love my van! This is the second Odyssey that I have owned. I like it because it is very dependable. I don’t have to roll out of it or get on my knees to get in it. Yet, it seats me high enough to see out good too. It’s worth the price. This newer model has stuff I will have to learn about so I can use it.


love this van

This is the perfect car for our family of 5. All three of our kids are in cars seats. We sit all 3 in the middle row if we need extra cargo space, or can put the oldest in the 3rd row and make the 2nd into captains chairs. All to say super versatile with room for family and cargo. Also love the way it drives... way better than you would imagine for a minivan.
