Disappointed in Honda Odyssey

While there are many positives about the 2005 Honda Odyssey and it has a loyal fan base, fuel inefficiency, horrible door mechanics and poor maneuverability make this van less than optimal. Our next car will likely be a Subaru Outback.

I love this car.

I don't dislike anything about this vehicle. Now that I don't transport kids as much in the vehicle, would be nice to have a slightly more fuel efficient car. That said, it is way more efficient than an SUV.
