Default Anyone did steering wheel extension project on 05-07 Honda odyssey?

I'm thinking the steering wheel is kinda too far away and I had to reach out to be able to have a good grip of the steering wheel or i"ll have to move the seat forward and stick my leggs to the panel. I see some of those steering wheel extension kits on line and i'm not sure if it'll fit the factory steering wheel and not void the factory warranty. Anyone has this kinda expirence?

I've never heard of an extension like that before, but generally a Honda uses the same functional parts across the board (I said Generally!) But anyway, if you can find out if that company you see has advertised that it can fit on an accord or acura TL, TSX, RL, CL, etc, then it would be fine for your oddysey. Since steering is a large part of your driving experience, and to not have it comfortably in reach, it might jeopardize your safety by not being able to turn with enough response, perhaps consider an aftermarket steering wheel. Yes, they would fit your oddysey, and you'd have to buy a hub kit as well, but you should choose a steering wheel that is a "deep dish" design. This means the actual hand grips of the wheel can be 3 or 4 inches closer to the driver with the center of the wheel still in the stock area. The only drawback is that you won't have an airbag, but come on, the odyssey is basically a tank and I doubt you'd get hurt in an accident. The choice is yours.
