A sport sedan in mini-van clothing.

2001 Honda Odyssey LX 4dr Minivan (3.5L 6cyl 4A)
After test driving the Windstar, Caravan, Sienna, and Quest, the Honda was the clear winner. Although we had to pay OVER list and wait for it, it was well worth it. I swore I'd never drive a mini-van, but I don't mind driving this van one bit. It is as easy to manuever and park as a mid-size sedan, and has better acceleration and is much smoother than sport-utes. I wanted a sport-ute, but after weighing mileage, space, functionality, and comfort it was really a no brainer. It is still as solid, quiet and reliable as the day it drove off the lot.
3rd row folding seat. Bench/captain seating option of the 2nd row. Traction control. A/C, heating and lighting at each passenger seat.
It could use a better stereo; has no bass and terrible speakers. Also, the seats could be better shaped to give support on long trips.
