I traded in my paid-off 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan for a 2011 Honda Odyssey Touring Elite in polished metal about a month ago. Needless to say, my Dodge was not worth much even though it is still in great condition with many features, so I had to kick in a bit more to buy this van I've always wanted to own an Odyssey and the timing was right this year. So far, I am thoroughly enjoying the van. I've added mud flaps, side molding, door edge guards, and door sill garnish. I'm on a trip to Florida at the moment, and am very pleased with the performance and gas mileage. Averaging around 28 MPG on I-95!! Looking forward to reading and contributing to the forums.
