lovely family car with lots of issues

Had it since 2019, after first month found Little painting chipped like spiderweb on the car roof (just 1 month), service guy said that blamed on birds. Every year Running about 13000km, and did alignment every year, now is 28000km, 4 tyres totally worn out. Has to do a regular service every 6 month, twice a year cost around 800 dollars, which a little annoying and too much for this price car. 350km driving range per tank is very short distance. Good side, no matter what my two kids love this minivan. Show details

Engine oil leaking

I can't believe the 2015 Honda Odyssey Australia I bought from Sutton Homebush Sydney, The First....! sell guys are pretty bad serving customer, they don't care whether you buy or not, Second, being service the servicing centre people are sucks, the cost promised cap but still over charge, you need to advise them that was capped, There wasn't many choice in 2015 as i need 8 seater, even the sell guy was bad i still need to make my decision, Now, the issue the engine oil is leaking I only driven 60,000km with this 5 years. I can tell the Honda car now was not as good as before. I swear i won't buy this brand again. Absolutely not reliable car anymore. Show details

Poor Fuel

Poor Fuel economy on the Current Honda Odyssey. Only 300kms per tank. Honda can’t seem to fix this so we might have to take this matter further. It certainly doesn’t match anywhere near the advise consumption advised by Honda and on the sticker on the car when bought. Has anyone else had Petrol Consumption issues? Show details

Perfect family car

Absolutely the best family car (with young kids) for many reasons. I have 2 car seats for my kids and i love that i can slightly recline the seats for when they fall asleep so their head isn't resting on their knees. The far back seat folds completely back which is so handy to change kids' nappies. The standard model comes with all the extras like sunroof, leather seats, folding side mirrors, window shades and more. The only negative is that the boot isnt automatic and its quite large so it's always a bit of an effort to close it, but even with that minor discomfort i still give it 5 stars. I bought this car brand new in 2015 and have had no issues with it Show details

Very disappointing electronics/console

I accidentally left my key and fob in the garage, used push button start and drove to my destination 20 minutes from home with no audio or digital alert from the car. Had to taxi home to get the key! Also the Bluetooth is dysfunctional and the maps is not user friendly. Thermometer is often several degrees incorrect. All are consistent with the manufacturers specs so if you’re after a car with great console features go for a different brand! Otherwise a nice car to drive.

Great car for work and family

We purchased this car to use for both family and work. With the rear seats folding flat in the back, it gives a very large space to use for transporting work materials. It also works with a mattress so our two small kids sleep there when travelling.

The automatic door is wonderful, making school drop off and pick up super easy from the kiss and ride zone.

Great family car!

I had purchased this car to accommodate my growing family and have been very pleased with the overall performance. I have the 7 seater model which is able to fit 3x 0-4yo car seats with great accessibility - this was one of my top requirements when short-listing the vehicles. It is not expensive to maintain and parking is super easy with the 360deg-view cameras. Only downside is there is no automatic door open function to the rear door otherwise great car! Highly recommend to those who want space with a touch of luxury.

Perfect car for my family (with 2 young kids)

Mine is the VTI-L model. I love this car so much as it has the sliding doors and the bird eye camera for easy parking. I do not have to worry about my kids opening the door and damaging other people's car. Very fuel efficient although it does not have much power. It is very spacey inside and you can fold down the very back seat for more boot space

Car is ok. Had power window issues since day 1

Car is ok. However I had power window issue since day 1. Honda acknowledge the issue however it took them 2 years to apply a workaround to the issue and countless number of time I had to bring the car back to Scotts Honda. In the end I had to settle for no car tint. Would I buy again from Scotts Honda. Definitely NO!

Hello there,

With the VTI model, can the third row still be occupied if I have two child seats on the outer seats of the second row? I'm worried about the tether straps that goes all the way back and the access to the third row. Thanks

Hi, the straps are going to the back side of the 2nd row seats of VTiL model, so no issues with accessing 3rd row seats. Not sure about VTi.

I have the VTi-L which has different seats so I can't really answer for the VTi

Thanks for your replies. I've test drove the vtil and I'm familiar with it's anchoir points. Would have been great if it's an 8 seater.
