Just got back from Honda. Their minivan would be the only one I would ever buy. They are amazing.
Actually the Sienna is a much better van. I like our odyssey and all, but they did some really really dumb things on it. Like you can turn the interior dome lights on, and even taking the key out does not turn them off. Kinda nice when the kids do that in the daylight and you do not notice, only to come out and your van is in the garage and dead the next morning. And then you cannot get the car into neutral until the car is started, so you cannot push it out a bit to jump start it.
That has happened to us at least a dozen times now.
They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety. - Benjamin Franklin 1775
Yeah you can make that work just as I do with my 3 car seats in back of the Ford Taurus. Works fine for short trips, but when you take an extended trip the noise level just seem to be a little lower if you can seperate the little monsters a bit...
That's dead on. If nothing else, you need the bigger vehicle for longer trips just for storage. There's no way you can fit a family of 5 and all their overnight stuff in a sedan.
I'm not a big fan of "stow and go". My in-laws have a Caravan with "stow and go" and we have a regular one, and I can get my seats in and out faster than they can "stow and go" and when my seats are out I have more room, plus when the seats are in, the seats are more comfortable.
But then, I've removed and installed a bunch of aircraft interiors, so the Caravan seats are a piece of cake.
