A friend of mine works at the Continental Honda/Acura dealership. He recently test drove the Odyssey and he said the same thing - if he were to buy a minivan, that would be the one. Sounds pretty nice.
That new Civic Si has a funky console, doesn't it? I was watching the commercial on TV, and it flashed by, so I rewound (I have Tivo) and played it in slow-motion. Looks pretty strange.
