I will agree, the Honda ODyssey Interior is very good to look at. However, upon closer inspection, one thing I did notice was that the build quality is simply not there.

I dont know if its poor craftsmanship but there were things that were not flush, things that werent equally aligned, and other little things. As a total package, its good, but the quality didint seem to be all that great. Maybe in materials..but putting things together was just meh.

your interior isn't allined, or exterior?

What you said, I noticed that too about the exterior, but so far the interior seems pretty well put together.

Not that this would prevent me from not buying the car, since I did lol. But in the second row, there is a bigger gap between the drivers side outer seat and center seat than there is on the passenger side. Its very visible. Also, I dont know what you call it, but the window/door lock panel on the front row passenger side is not flush with the door panel so it sticks out. This isnt the case with the driver side. And the map/pocket on the same door, the plastic edges are rough and not smoothed down.

In the second row with the bigger gap, I'm guessing that one of your seats is in wide mode and you don't know it. Pull the lever on the side of the seat (at the front) and tip the seat forward. Move it to where it should be, and that'll fix the problem.

I wish that was the case, but its not.

Do you have a 2011 or 2012 model? The interior of my 2011 is great. Everything is put together nicely and I haven't noticed many imperfections.

The outside is a different story. I have a couple of misaligned panels at the back near the tailgate. Nothing that would stop me from buying the vehicle, though visible to my eyes. The dealer said he would adjust it for me if I wish, but it would take several hours.

Overall, I am happy with the van's build quality but I know it is hit and miss around here.

My dark gray plastic trim around the power window looks fine.
I do see a little lack of finish around the map bins in the 2 front doors where it switches from textured to smooth (interior of bin) but nothing terrible.
The only interior trim issue I had was the panel in the 3rd row driver side where the armrest / 115V outlet is. It just wasn't clipped right and had a good bit of movement.

Exterior panels is like gstorm said... Though my dealer didn't offer to realign :)

Yooyoo, I forgot to add say: the gap between your seats in the 2nd row. You sure you don't have one of the sides in 'wide' mode by any chance? Hopefully you can just move the seat on those wider nuckles to fix your gap and it isn't a seat cushion thing.

Positive. I was wishing that was the case.
