We bought this van when we were expecting our fourth child and we've really enjoyed it. We have four captain chairs and we love the way we can herd all the kids in and shut the doors before we get everybody in their seats. For a big family I think this car is a better buy and more comfortable than any SUV we've had. My husband wants to trade mine and get a newer model but at 106,000 miles it still runs great. If I ever get another, I'll spring for a high top with leather seats.
It is very comfortable to drive and ride in. The four captain chairs leave lots of room in the interior and you are able to separate fighting siblings. There is even enough room between the drivers seat and the chair behind it for a full size stroller for longer trips.
The air conditioner vents should never be placed where they are. No cold air hits the kids in the back seat. I think air vents should come from the sides and point backward.
