I love my Odyssey!!!

Last July when I traded in my 2005 Yukon XL Denali for my 2008 Honda Odyssey, people thought I was crazy. No, what was CRAZY was the $4.59 gas prices! I couldn't stand paying $70.+ for a HALF tank of gas, that didn't even last two full weeks. We stopped driving as much as I usually drive and that was barely nothing anyways, since I was working full time with the daycare all day, so my driving was limited to cheer practices, grocery store, and other errands like that. Mike was deployed, but I knew I had to do something and soon. I did all my research and found the perfect vehicle that still offered space and was apples-to-apples in my opinion. Fully loaded Denali to fully loaded Odyssey. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

I really do LOVE my Odyssey! I have always wanted one, and now I can cross that off my list, so to speak. I think my favorite feature is the Variable Cylinder Management™ , that saves a ton a gas. I am currently at 19.5 mgp at a little above a half a tank after traveling throughout town and up and down the highway for over two weeks. Love it!!!
