Once again, Honda comes up on top when it comes to safety ratings. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has recently awarded the 2011 Honda Odyssey with a five star rating from their new crash-test rating system.
Honda Odyssey earns top five-star safety rating
The 2011 Honda Odyssey received an overall rating of five stars in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s new crash-test rating system, the safety agency announced today.
The Odyssey’s overall composite score is composed of a five-star frontal, four-star rollover and a five-star rating for the combined side pole and barrier tests. The side barrier test is an area where other vehicles have shown weakness with the safety agency’s new testing format. The side pole test simulates a 20-mph side-impact crash into a 10-inch-diameter pole or tree at a 75-degree angle just behind the A-pillar on the driver’s side.
According to Honda, the four-star rollover rating is actually the highest rating a vehicle of this body type can achieve under NHTSA’s testing methodology:
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety recently announced the Odyssey received a top score of Good in all of its crash tests but hasn’t completed a roof-strength test that is required to earn the Top Safety Pick designation.
Out of the more than 50 models NHTSA has tested so far, only 11 have earned a five-star rating under the revamped system: Acura MDX, BMW 5 Series, Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Cruze, Chevrolet Silverado, Chevy Traverse, GMC Acadia, GMC Sierra, Honda Accord, Hyundai Sonata and Volvo XC60. NHTSA still has few more models left to test for 2011.

Here are some reviews that I would like to share from our customers at Frank Ancona Honda in Olathe, Kansas. The first review is from Erin B. of Gardner, on Yelp.com
Although, I didn’t buy my Honda at Frank Ancona, I did take it there for an oil change. I called and they were able to get my car in that afternoon, unlike some other dealerships. I pulled in and my car was taken car of quickly. They have a WONDERFUL waiting room. There is coffee, juice, snacks, children’s books/toys, and a clean environment. They also gave my Honda a quick car wash before bringing it back to me. I highly recommend this dealership!

I have been going to F.A Honda’s Service dept for the past 6 months or so. I have been very pleased with the Service. David Ricketts is very professional and honest. He does not recommend unnecessary maintainence work to be done. Being a single mom and someone who doesn’t know too much about car maintenance, I’m very comfortable taking my van to that Service dept. I know they will NOT ” take me for a ride”.
