Been searching online for weeks for a local deal on a good deal on Honda Odyssey`s. Local dealer had just posted this 2006 Honda Odyssey on their website. Had to go and check it out. WOW, talk about a nice van. Traded my 97 Olds Silhouette on the spot and put $3000 cash down. Was priced at $13,980. Bought a Zurich Direct drive train warranty for $1480 to be safe since it has 96890 miles.

Hi Jim, it sounds like a good deal! I paid more for mine here in Canada.
A lot of nice features in the interior, but I am just not sure these vans have enough
cup holders :)
I see in your pics that you don't have the 8th seat.

I recently removed 3rd row, 8th seat, 1 captain chair and lazy Susan,(-300 pounds) and
now this Ody drives like I installed a turbo and bigger breakes :) it shoots off stop lights
and breakes much faster, and it curves easier, much more agile all around.
Not to mention less gas consumption.

I pulled out the jump seat and stored it away. Thinking about pulling out the lazy Susan to. Don`t have much use for storing that way. There are only 3 of us so pulling chairs is a good idea. Use to on my Olds Silhouette to. Do the stow and go seating in back pull out ?

Your kidding, I looked at it and thought how in the world do
I unbolt it. Would be cool to have that pit opened up for vacation coming in June.

Guess I better look at some tech info from the honda parts online. Thanks for the help. Had no idea they came out.

That was easy enough, should have had my son come help it out when the time came. Sure was heavy lifting it out and getting onto a cart to haul away.
