The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Honda Odyssey doesn’t just have the practicality that’s expected in a minivan; it’s fun to drive, too. If you’re shopping for a practical family hauler, the Chrysler Town & Country needs to be on your “must drive” list if only for the features it offers.
