As we anxiously await a new test car for the Autoblog garage we'll have to satisfy ourselves with what others are driving. Our favorite national newspaper auto journalist James R. Healey takes out the completely redesigned Honda Odyssey minivan. Long awaited to compete with the slick Toyota Sienna and funky Nissan Quest, the Odyssey may not look cool but its what's underneath and inside that counts. And while the Honda offers lots of power, 255 hp, but doesn't have as much room inside than the Sienna. And the second row seats aren't as useful as those in the Chrysler range or the Sienna. But hey did we mention the power? And it's a Honda? That should get enough people in the showroom.

Update: There's also a story on the newest minivan on CNN/Money.
