#8 of 10 Leather plus reliability
May 27, 2006 (3:46 am)
Thanks hrngffcr and dc_driver! Your testimonies are enough to convince me to buy a leather interior (my 3-yr old son vomited in my wife's Honda Civic just yesterday - no leather there...)
As for schmidtj's comment, I agree 100%. Actually, Honda's reliability is the only reason why I hesitated to go with the Entourage but I decided to go ahead and will buy the GLS Leather next week (I don't think it can be a lemon but if it gives me trouble I'll simply rely on its warranty (and you're right about the Honda recalls - lots of Odysseys were called back because of power door problems; in 2003, fuel tank with tendency to leak; 2004: water accumulation in the fuel pump electrical connectors). The only regret I will have with my Entourage is that in Canada the model doesn't come with a sunroof (the Nissan Quest is the best for this!)- I love mine in my Mazda Protegé!)

If you are buying the model in Canada with the leather, then it should come with power sunroof. I know the one my wife looked at in leather and GLS had power doors and tailgate plus sunroof. If not then buy Kia Sedona fully loaded, because a buddy of mine has one and it has everything. The two vehicles are the same with different trim and badging.

I'm 6'5'' and 275lbs and I can sit in the back row for short trips. The seat back does angle back more. And the leather seems to have more padding. Plus leather cleans up much better than cloth
