    Differences between the years of Odyssey's

    Hello All,

    I'm currently in the market for a new 05+ Odyssey (probably 2006+ just to avoid the first year jitters). I have searched for a while on this forum and came up with the following differences between the years. I was hoping someone could doublecheck and add in any features that I may have missed (or delete some features that may be wrong).

    2006 VS 2007
    New Tranny (from Ridgeline)
    Telescopeing steering
    TPMS
    Lazy susan deleted from all but the touring model
    New cupholders on second row seat
    Coin holder added
    Windhshield washer dispensors became black instead of body colored
    Programmable Door Locks (EX-L +)
    Third Row Seat Became Vinyl

    2007 VS 2008
    Bluetooth on EX-L and Touring (option)
    4 way power passenger seat (std exl n touring)
    Rearview camera (std exl now)
    Memory linked mirror/reverse gear tilt down (touring)
    New storage bin in plus one seat (EX, EXL touring)
    3 zone auto climate control (EX, EX-L)
    New VCM
    XM Radio (EX-L)
    Auxillary Audio Port Added, new MP3 compatable CD player
    PAX system became optional (Touring, US Only)
    New poweroutlet @ the back


    2008 VS 2009
    Bluetooth availible on EX-L w/ Navi
    Power tailgate on EX-L or higher

    Am I missing anything?

    From the list at the moment i'm thinking I should try to stick to 2007+ EX-L (and 08 if I can find a good deal). Any comments?

    You forgot that in 2007 the third row seat became vinyl and the EXL's got programmable door locks. At some point, the EXL RES models got the power outlet in the back. I'm not sure when that happened, but I know for a fact that it wasn't there in the beginning and it is there now. The cupholders were deleted from the sides of the second row seats in either 2007 or 2008. The whole plus one seat changed, the new one doesn't collapse the way the old one did, thus the storage bin. In 2006 the EXL's got a leather steering wheel and shift knob, but that doesn't really matter to you. In either 2007 or 2008, all of the models got a stereo that had MP3 capability. I'm glad to see someone else noticed the windshield washer dispensers other than me.

    At some point, the transmission got a stacked plate auxiliary cooler but someone will have to supply the year.

    I think you forgot what some would consider to be the most important, the deletion of the PAX system in 2008.

    Could you clairify on the Vinyl comment. Does this mean that all levels of trim have Vinyl seats, or only the Leather ones?

    I think the power outlet was added in 2008.

    I have added all the other points to my list. Thanks everyone.

    In 2006, all of the leather equipped Odysseys had leather third row seats. In 2007, the backing of the seat became fabric. It is unclear as to whether the rest of the seat was still leather at that point or vinyl. (I think vinyl) By 2008, all of the literature listed the leather Odysseys as having leather only in the first and second rows. Indicating that none of the third rows were real. The vinyl only applies to Leather Odysseys. I know that none of the second generation Odysseys had real leather third rows and there was a discussion about it when the this generation came out about it.

    I forget when this happened, but there used to be a drawer under the passenger seat that I think is no longer there. It was there in 2006, but I don't know which year is left (If it did at all).

    This is not a biggie, but the 08+ models are not compatible with the accessory subwoofer. The Touring model still comes loaded with one.

    He wanted to avoid the "first year jitters", but as far as I can tell, the EXL model got a leather steering wheel and shift knob in 2006. Besides that I never noticed a difference between the 05 and 06.

    biggest thing from 05 to 06 was that 06 now had 05/60k on the engine drivetrain. 05's were only 3/36k
