Used Honda Odyssey
Making its debut in 1995, the now used Honda Odyssey had some features which made it unique. Most minivans sported sliding doors on the sides, but not the Odyssey. Instead, it came with conventional doors which swung openly, and had crank style windows. The vehicle also didn't come with a standard V6 engines as other minivans; instead it had an inline-4 cylinder engine. What made it popular was its foldable third row seat, which is quite standard with minivans today.
Honda made improvements to the vehicle in 1999, particularly upgrading the engine from the inline-4 to a V6, adding dual sliding rear doors, and installing side curtain airbags. All models came with air conditioning, antilock brakes, traction controls, cruise control, tilt steering wheel, and a nice stereo system. Some models were equipped with automatic climate controls and leather seats.

Although still used, the newer versions of the vehicle debuted in 2011. The vehicle was totally redesigned with the driver in mind. They have a much roomier interior, better fuel economy, and a slew of new features.

One great feature is the fantastic rear entertainment system to keep anyone occupied.
