#41 of 62 Re: Honda Odyssey - new body for '09? [dsrtrat2]
Jan 06, 2009 (9:55 am)
The 2nd generation Odyssey, (the first one with sliding doors) was released in 1999, then the 3rd generation (this current one) came out in 2005. This indicates that each odyssey model is around for 6 years. Furthermore, within the six years, years 4,5,6 are slightly altered from years 1,2,3. This coincides with the 2008 face lift. The 2008 face lift will be offered for 2008, 2009, and 2010, until the entire car is redone. The model released in 2005 also fits this scenario since it was also available for the years, 2005, 2006, and 2007. Let me know if you have anymore questions.
#42 of 62 2009 Odyssey EX or EXL? Please help me decide!
Feb 06, 2009 (10:33 am)
So I'm about to pull the trigger on an 09 Odyssey lease and need some advice. Is the EXL (without NAV, without DVD) worth the extra $$$ over the EX?
EXL has the backup camera, leather seats, heated front row seats, moonroof, VCM and the power liftgate. As with the EXL, the EX has the dual power doors which is really important to me (that's why I'm not cosidering the LX at all). I have one child and will probably be adding another in due time. I am short and am wondering if get the EX, will I be cursing myself that I didn't the EXL with the power liftgate? The camera seems nice but you still have to turn around and look behind you when backing up. And of course, heated leather is nice on your rear end, but not essential, although the "wipability" factor with kids needs consideration. Anyway, please help! EX or EXL? Thanks so much!!!

I'd get the EX-L; all those little convenience features seem trivial now, but on a cold morning you'll really appreciate heated seats, on a rainy day you'll like the power tailgate, and the leather will be really useful when it comes to wiping up spills and such.

We just got the EX-L without NAV and without DVD. My wife is 4'10" and her main requirement was the power liftgate. It is definately worth the extra $$.

I have been given a price on the Honda Odyssey that has leather interior and DVD. I paid for the bottom line price from consumer reports and it said the price I should pay is 29,115. This is the price the dealer agreed to. Has anyone found a better deal if so please email me with the info. Thank you.

Would you happen to know the Consumer Reports price for EXL Res/Nav? Is this the price which you have to pay for the information from Consumer Reports, or is there another way to obtain it?

No I do not know the price for the Nav. included. Yes this is the price through consumer report that you have to pay $14 for. It is worth because all you have to do is show the dealer the report and you will get you vehcile for the bottom line price almost every time.
#48 of 62 Question on TPMS
Mar 20, 2009 (8:21 am)
I know that on some vehicled, the TPMS sensors in the wheel are married to the wheel position on the vehicle including the spare. On my EX-L there is a general system and my question is this....Can I rotate the tires without taking it to the dealership to have the sensors re-programmed like you have to do on many Toyota's.

You can get a better price now. I was offered EXL+RES for 28,455. No destination charge, just tax and DMV ($207). Keep shopping! good luck~
