Hey Robert, 

Thanks for writing in. Considering your budget, there are a couple ways you may want to refine your search for the right Honda Odyssey. First, you may want to look at models that are 2012 or older. Anything newer is going to be more expensive than your budget. Secondly, since you are looking for a used model, you will want to consider a few trade offs. For example, you will probably be able to find nicer trim options with higher miles for that price. On the contrary, you will be able to find "lower" trim options with less miles for the same price. You have to decide if lower miles or more technology/comfort is more important to you and your personal needs. 

When you are comparing models, know that the Touring and Elite models are the top trim options, and are considered the nicest. For your price range, if you are looking at a 2012, you should be able to find an a good Touring or Elite model that fits your needs. Again, these are likely going to have 120,000+ miles on them. Opt for an EX or an EX-L if you want to stay in your price range and have lower miles. 

Always look up a vehicle history reports (for both accidents and maintenance), and have a pre-purchase inspection done by a qualified technician. 

Good luck!
