2010 Honda Odyssey review

The Honda Odyssey, one of America's best-selling minivans, has all the patent strengths a kid-hauler should have: roominess, safety, reliability and decent fuel efficiency. It's even a bit of fun to drive, though at some point either you or your spouse will likely complain about its firm ride. I also wish Honda would learn a thing or two from Chrysler and make its features more user-friendly.

The current generation has been around since the 2005 model year, and it got a modest freshening for 2008. There are minimal changes for the 2009 version, which you can compare with the '08 here. In ascending order, trim levels include the LX, EX, EX-L and Touring. I drove an Odyssey EX-L.
