With three kids, I can't imagine not having a van. We are on our second Odyssey, and both have been spectacular. The first one racked up over 300,000k - virtually trouble-free. To expand on what Ray said about upgrades, we always made the conscious decision to buy the base model. As reliable as the Honda's are, our kids are REALLY hard on things. I bought into the whole "fewer things to go wrong" mentality, and it seems to have paid off. YMMV.

Ken, I'm on my 4th Honda Odyssey since 2004. Boy, I guess they break down and have to get thrown away a lot. (I lease 'em.)

Seriously, any little thing that sorta bugged me:

2004 "Why did they put THAT there?"
2006 "Oh, look! They moved it here! Great!
2006 "I wish that they would..."
2009 "Hey, this year they included a...!"
2009 "You know what'd be great?"
2011 "Awesome, you did it! But I didn't say "hearse" anywhere in my letters to you, did I? DID I?

I'm over that part now. I HAVE to have a van. I tried a van AND a car for a while and couldn't afford both, soo..

I wouldn't have another candidate. It's more comfortable to sit in than any car, and it allows the torque and quickness I demand in order to drive like an asshole! Hey, it's Boston! No one else would ever notice!" Especially the Boston police!

Whatever your final choice, Ken, best of luck, except if you buy any Chrysler product.

I've ridden in Bob's van. Everything he says is true.

Seriously, Ken, you ignore the Odyssey recommendations at your peril.

BTW, I've stayed silent on this, but I have an Odyssey too.

My sister SWORE she would never drive a minivan when she had kids. She's now on her third and won't drive anything else.

Ken once said himself that I should be the ambassador to China.
I think I had just written something on how many dates we'll buy from the middle east after the oil runs out and how that relates to the future market for Saudi virgin hair.

Which is what is being used as stuffing for the Odyssey seats.

It seems that the SUV option is not popular here - but I am going to give one more shout out. My family vehicle from "back in the day" is a '98 Ford Expedition. I still have it for hauling and.....those few snow days we have here. Big Blue rode again this past weekend (295k+ miles)as we pulled a uhaul filled with funiture from Oak Ridge, NC to Richmond Va. 55 mph speed limit - HA! I was going 55 until a pickup hauling a much larger trailer blew by me on I-40. My brother-in-law's advice had been to accelerate until the trailer began to fishtail and then back off a bit. I didn't go to that extreme but I did ease it up to 65 mph shortening the time of the trip somewhat. And.....I never did have to justify the purchase.....
