      Why Honda still uses primitive timing belts in their engines.

      +TheGomezIndustries You wouldn't hear a complaint out of me if timing belts went the way of the dinosaur.

      I just hate timing belts. A $45,000 car should have at least a more durable chain instead of a belt.

      0:11. "But if you need lots of can always get a large crossover." I disagree. Even a large crossover doesn't provide the space that a minivan provides, especially in the third row.

      It's precisely why we traded ours in for an Ody. Not to mention, with more than 2 kids, even a three row SUV is less than practical and you get darn near zero cargo space with the third row in use.

      When looking for a vehicle for a family, it’s important to put practicality and safety over looks and speed. A small, speedy car is not a practical or safe car for most families. A small vehicle can’t hold as many things or people. In a sports car you’re more likely to speed, just because you can, which puts you, the people in the car, and other people in danger. If you don’t care about the safety and practicality of your car when buying it for your family, you will look like an asshole to countless people, most likely even the people in your car.

      yaspeer shaik extra tire is located in the second row in a floor compartment. So maybe the tool kit is there as well (but not sure about the tool kit).

      What has put Honda above all others is a couple of things. Obvious pride in making a quality product. Obvious ability to listen to their customers. Enough humility to actually learn from flaws/mistakes, and address those issues. And the obvious understanding of what causes most businesses to fail: They don’t allow the temptation to cut corners (Greed) undermine the quality of their products. Try to save a penny, and you usually end up losing a dime over time. (Yes, I just made that up) In a word,...Excellence. Keep on keeping it simple Honda. “If it’s not broken, keep on leaving it alone.” More complexity = more problems, and less control. Thanks for understanding that better than the others.

      I currently have the previous generation Odyssey (2017), and I immediately noticed that they corrected one of the things I do not like about mine. The middle row seats have armrests on both sides. Once you take out the middle seat/section on mine, the bucket seats are left without armrest on the inside, which I do not like. The other things I do not like about mine are wind noise, which is surprisingly high, and the ride quality, which isn't as plush as I would like.
