Hi. I'm getting a hanging storage rack in my garage and wanted to make sure that when I purchase the new Odyssey it won't scrape the hood. If you have a 2011 Odyssey, will you please let me know the height of the hood? I want the Touring. I'm not sure if there is a difference between the models or not. It'll save me trip to the dealership. Thanks for your help!

please clarify. Do you mean a rack that hangs from the ceiling? If so you would be worried about scraping the roof or maybe when opening the tailgate? Not the hood???

If you are talking about the hood (the part that covers the engine), you need a minimum of 45" from the ground to clear the windshield washer nozzles. I'd suggest 46 - 47". If you are talking about the roof (without a rack installed), you need about 69", but I'd leave 70 - 71" from the ground.

The above measurements are for a 2011 EX RES, but I believe the height of the other models is about the same.

Thanks for your replies. The rack will be hanging from the ceiling in the front wall of my garage. I was afraid when I pulled in, the rack would scrape the hood, not the roof of the van.

Thanks for giving me the height. I now know how low I can let the rack hang.
