The 2018 Honda Odyssey Wraps Up Its Long-Term Stay with Car and Driver

When it comes to tiny little sports cars, you might be able to assume that it won't be with its driver for very long. But, when it comes to well-equipped and hefty family minivans, you can assume that it'll be with its driver for a good few years.

That's why, when you're shopping for a minivan in California, it's better to look at long-term reviews than first-drive flash reviews. All cars look and feel great the first time out--but you want to know how much you'll love it after 30,000 or 90,000 miles.

Car and Driver has had a 2018 Honda Odyssey minivan in their fleet now for about a year, and they're ready to share their thoughts.

Here are a few of the main points from their initial review, and review after nearly 30,000 miles of testing:

  • You'll be thankful for the rear-seat entertainment system on really long trips with really antsy kids
  • You'll be able to tackle dry messes with ease with Honda's in-car vacuum
  • You'll like the surprisingly quick acceleration
  • You'll enjoy the agile handling of the responsive drivetrain
  • You'll feel more confident about the safety of your family with a laundry list of security and assistance features

The feature-packed new Honda Odyssey is really coming into its own in this latest and greatest generation of Honda's iconic minivan line.

We're excited to be able to offer a great selection of new 2018 and 2019 Honda Odyssey LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, and Elite minivans for sale in El Cerrito.

If seat comfort is a priority for you on your multi-hour (or multi-day) summer road trips, as it should be, you'll appreciate one of Car and Driver's big takeaways:

"Multiple drivers observed that they were comfortable behind the wheel for six or more hours at a time, while second-row passengers brooked no complaints about their accommodations, either, whether upright for sightseeing or reclined for napping."
