2018 Honda Odyssey: The Best Family Car EVER

We don’t think we’re going out on a limb by saying the 2018 Honda Odyssey is the best family car ever. Like ever, ever. Frankly, we feel so solid in this claim, that we aren’t even going to back it up with a disclaimer (and car dealerships love a good disclaimer).

Eyes In The Back Of Your Head

Parents really do have eyes in the back of their heads with the 2018 Honda Odyssey. At the touch of a button the driver can broadcast his or her voice through the rear speakers and headsets to more clearly, safely and calmly convey the message of the moment. The all-new Odyssey also offers an in-cabin camera that displays the action in back on the touchscreen up front. Now you’ll clearly see who started the sibling squabble in the backseat. The camera is positioned in such a way that you can even see babies in rear-facing car seats and confirm yet again that baby is still breathing.

Is This A Minivan Or A Lamborghini? 

Nobody has ever bought a minivan for the fun of it. Driving satisfaction has long been a Honda hallmark, but the older Honda Odyssey drives like a cargo van compared to this puppy. The 2018 Honda Odyssey is strong at the start when you need it, and it glides through gears. It whips around like a small vehicle on city streets and it’s quiet and powerful on the highway. It’s the best-driving minivan we’ve ever driven.

Do You Believe In Magic Glide Seats?

The innovative Magic Slide 2nd-Row Seats™ can be moved toward the center of the vehicle, making it easier to move a child in the 2nd row within reach of the driver, and to provide easier access to the 3rd row, even with two rear-facing child seats installed. Every parent’s worst nightmare has just been solved! You can now handle stuffing kids into car seats without breaking a sweat. Gone are the days of running into old high school classmates at the grocery store while looking like a hot mess.

You’ll Wonder How You Lived Without Wifi

Long trips just got way better. Your kids can connect their iPads to the in-cabin wifi to pass the hours. Go ahead, kids, watch a movie on Netflix (no one liked playing the license plate game anyway).

Lease a 2018 Honda Odyssey this month at Thayer Honda for $399 a month!

⬆︎ We added a disclaimer to that part because we couldn’t help ourselves. But we still refuse to add any disclaimer to the claim that this is the best minivan ever. BECAUSE. IT. IS.

Five Reasons To Love Nissan Titan

Completely redesigned for 2017, the Titan earned Truck Trend magazine’s Pickup Truck of the Year for its impressive performance, standard feature set, optional safety tech, and value for money.

It’s A Work Truck

Supportive seats and a quiet cabin make the Titan practical and comfortable for cruising the highway or the job site, and it can tow up to 9740 pounds. Three configurations are offered: a crew cab with 5.6-foot bed, extended cab with 6.6-foot bed, and single cab with 8.2-foot bed.

But being a work truck doesn’t mean you can’t have it all.  You’ll love Nissan’s Around View Monitor 360 virtual overhead camera display, heated and cooled front seats featuring Nissan’s exclusive “zero gravity” design, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, a memory function for the steering wheel, driver’s seat and outside mirrors, 7-inch touchscreen navigation and entertainment display, LED low-beam headlights, Titan Box in-bed storage compartments, and integrated trailer brake controller.

The Best V-8 Engines

They’re a technical knock-out. Titan’s 5.6-liter, Endurance V8 gas engine combines brains and brawn. With a 4-valve-per-cylinder design and Nissan Direct Injection System and Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL), you’ve got the power you want with the efficiency you need.

PRO4X Off-Roading Trim

If you’re a fan of taking your truck through outdoor terrain at high speeds, the 2017 Titan PRO4X is worth a look. This four-wheel-drive trim includes durable cloth upholstery, tow hooks, skid plates, a sprayed bedliner, off-road Bilstein shocks, a lockable rear differential, and all-terrain tires. The PRO4X also packs on fancier features like bucket front seats, an eight-way power driver seat with adjustable lumbar support, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, full navigation, an expanded seven-inch touch-screen display with voice controls, and dual-zone automatic climate control.

The Safest Safety Features

Most 2017 Titan models come with Trailer Sway Control, a feature that helps stop a trailer from tipping to one side, such as when riding a heavy curve. Hill Descent Control helps keep the Titan stopped for the first few seconds to give you time when starting up or down a hill, and PRO4X and higher models have a rearview backup camera and automatic wipers that detect moisture on the windshield.

This month we have $6,000 in rebates on new Nissan Titan inventory! See us for details! Think Thayer Nissan in Bowling Green!
