Honda Odyssey – Wins Motorist's Choice Minivan (Also a 2006 VSA and IVA winner)



AutoPacific’s Take on Odyssey’s Win: Honda Odyssey wins the inaugural Motorist’s Choice Award® and also was the Minivan class leader in the 2006 AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Award® and Ideal Vehicle Award®. Owners’ ratings of the reputation of the Odyssey and the Honda brand for reliability, dependability, and quality strongly contributed to its win. Odyssey owners also strongly rated seating and cargo capacity. After all, that is what a Minivan is all about.
IntelliChoice’s Spin: When the Honda Odyssey rose to the top of the minivan class in the Motorist’s Choice analysis, we at IntelliChoice were not very surprised. Afterall, the Odyssey has been a Best Overall Value of the Year winner the last three years, and shows no sign of losing that crown any time soon. An absolute standard-bearer for all other minivan’s to work towards, the Odyssey delights it’s owner everytime it is loaded up with supplies (and/or people!) as well as when it comes time to make that monthly payment. A true “Motorist’s Choice”!

Scion xB – Wins Motorist's Choice Small Wagon



AutoPacific Take on win by Scion xB –
Scion xB owners’ satisfaction ratings for its size and package strongly contribute to its class-leading performance in the Motorist’s Choice Awards’® Small Wagon category. The xB “rolling box” design makes it very easy to get into and out of and easy for the driver to see out of. These are important factors to the xB owner. While xB is small on the outside, it is huge on the inside with its limousine-like rear seat getting rave reviews.
IntelliChoice Analysis – The Scion xB is a true Motorist’s Choice ‘no-brainer’. We at IntelliChoice named the xB as a Best Overall Value of the Year winner in 2006 thanks to its amazing resale value and low expected maintenance and fuel costs. And when you factor in the low entry price, the xB shines. The amazing thing is that it came to the U.S. market to attract younger drivers, but it seems to be a bit hit across all ages. With a Cost of Ownership of just $23,500 vs. $27,000 for it competitors, can you blame them?
