This is a review written on my personal 2011 Honda Odyssey.
Here’s a picture of my personal Smokey Topaz 2011 Honda Odyessy. My previous vehicle was a 2006 Honda Odyessy, so you can see I am an Odyessy fan.
The console is great and all the controls are user friendly. I am able to have XM radio and program my favorite stations. I would say Radio Disney is playing 95% of the time!
The open “box” you see if the cooler that is cooled using the air condition. I was so excited about this feature when I was purchasing the 2011 Honda Odyessy. It is so hot in Texas that my family is always carrying around a cooler to keep from buying drinks at the gas station. Well, sadly, we are still carrying around a cooler because this “cooler option” stinks!!! You might as well just use this for a catch all drawer. Your drinks have to be VERY cold before you put them in there and they don’t seem to stay that cold. The cooler is supposed to stay cool for an hour after you turn off the vehicle, but I don’t think so, unless the Odyessy is just not ready for the Texas Heat! So…. don’t let this option sway you into buying this vehicle since the Honda Pilot lacks the cooler, but is also a great vehicle.
The second row middle seat is great for the kids. As you can see, my kids have a peppermint stash from the restaurants we frequent. You can never have too many cup holders in a vehicle!
The back end of the 2011 Honda Odyessy is so big. This vehicle does have a third row, but I like to use it as a covered pickup since I can carry such large objects. We just bought a full size coffee table and had room to spare. I have also seen someone load a love seat in the back of the Odyessy too!
The optional Honda floor mats are SO worth the extra money. We put our van to the test this weekend and hit the beach. You can imagine all the sand we had in there once we got back home! These large rubber-like floor mats saved me lots of cleaning time. I was able to lift them from the van, wash them off and get all the sand out of each section of the van! These mats are great since they hook right into the floor and never move around.
The Honda Odyessy back up camera…… it has spoiled me!! I love it. Look at the picture and you can see my driveway as I see it when the van is in reverse. The Honda Odyessy navigation system is user friendly and very useful.
Of course, my Scentsy Scent Circle can always be found hanging from my rear view mirror.
I thought I’d give you proof that I really drive this vehicle. This is my newest addition to the my Odyessy. I had the back window wrapped to show off my mom blog and my Scentsy site. What do you think?
All in all, I love the Odyessy, but if I could change two things about it, I would…..
1. Improve the cooler.
2. Make the driver more aware when they are running low on fuel with an “eye catching low fuel light.”
