2008 Honda Odyssey EX 3.5L from North America
Comfortable and reliable with some stupid design thrown in
Not too much.
The passenger side door whistles a bit at speeds over 50.
The front door speakers are occasionally overwhelmed when the song has a lot of base.
The heat shields are falling off the exhaust - making a lot of racket as they go - very irritating. I took it to the Honda dealer and they said, "$897 will fix you right up!" What? So that I can pay to have new ones put on in another 50,000 miles? You've got to be kidding? Seems that the 8 year/80,000 mile emissions warranty does cover the converters, but not the heat shields (around the converters) that would prevent your car from going up in flames...
Low and wide as compared to a T&C or Caravan. A good highway car from 70-90 mph. Down on power. Chrysler vans have more grunt right off the bottom of the rev band. The Honda seems heavy and the 3.5L a bit over burdened. The Honda, does not however, embarrass itself going around corners (like the tippy Chrysler products).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I purchased my heat shields at Amazon for <$40 and had a local mechanic install it for another $40. Just make sure you buy the one you need. There are 3 or 4 of them. I believe engine area has 2 and there is one in the middle and one at the rear. Good luck!

Put a big hose clamp around those cat covers to get rid of the noise. No need to replace if they're just loose at the bottom. It's a different story if the bottom half is rusted away...
