Run flat tires are useless here (must be purchased at a dealer -350 miles away), no place to put a spare, regular tires cannot be used on alloy rims. New rims and tires cost about $1000. Spare lays on the floor in the back - a hazard in the event of an accident.
Front grill has no screen; a rock hit it; now the air conditioner does not work because the freon leaked out.
Navigation system does not work in Alaska, and there is no updated or Alaska version available. This would be very useful in Anchorage. I miss it very much.
We paid over $36,000 to get the top of the line; some of the expensive features are worthless. We had previously been happy Honda owners (our RD brand new Honda and several used). We have also purchased third new Ford Taurus station wagons. We like new cars. But we are sorry we went with the Honda Odyssey.
The van does have some nice features: the 6 CD player is nice.
The heated leather seats are comfortable.
The DVD player is hard to figure out sometimes. Seems like sometimes the rear speaker works, sometimes it doesn't.
The calendar and calculator features on the navigation system are handy.
The remote works well: opens hatchback and side doors in addition to locking/unlocking doors.
Sunroof is pleasant.
