    2018/19 Comparisons?

    We are in the market for a new vehicle. Family of 6. Current family vehicle is a tahoe and we are thinking of making that drastic switch to a minivan. I came on here to compare the new sienna/ody/pacifica and not finding any 2018 (and now 2019's coming out) comparisons, only 17 and older. can i find them somewhere else in the forums?

    Greetings,

    Not to scare you but while researching/ buying minivans, please do check consumer reports and avoid the one with all bells and whistles (~$50k price mark.) Also, personal suggestion - try driving them back to back for the "feel", comfort, EOU (ease of use), and most importantly, feedback from kids (2nd/3rd-row occupants.)

    2018 Elite is becoming a pain in @$$ due to some """known""" software issues that Honda is still trying to rectify aka, Cabin Watch and RES related. I've heard the 2019 model has fewer issues.

    Details are in our 'problems/concerns' forum.

    Rest, mechanically, Honda beats the competition ... and I'm glad I bought this one vs Dodge/ Chrysler/ Toyota. Toyota looks dated and Chrysler/ Dodge will have more mechanical/ DT issues in the long run (in my 2cs).

    Hope this helps and happy shopping/ driving the Odysseys!

    BR,

    We picked the 2019 EX because it had the features we needed and wasn't too expensive. We would have preferred leather but didn't want to buy an EX-L or higher trims. So far we've been very happy and haven't had any issues. We also looked at the Pacifica, Sedona and Sienna. If all you care about is reliability then the Sienna or Sedona could be better since it seems like there are still issues to work out in the newer generation Odysseys. We really set out to buy a Sienna but we hated the way the 2nd row seats worked and it actually hurt my back operating them.

    One of the biggest reasons I chose the Odyssey over the Sienna is the 2nd row seat fold. I am buying my 3rd Odyssey and each time I buy one I look at the sienna at least twice, I have yet to meet a salesperson that was able to show me how the seats fold easily. The Odyssey is much smoother and simpler to fold which is important for me since I carpool elementary age kids, I have no patience to fold the seats, I need the children to do it on their own.
