For a van, this is the most fun to drive vehicle! It has lots of power, good mileage compared with Explorers and Expeditions that compete with vans, and has been tight and rattle free! Something I can't say for my domestic cars I owned. Hopefully, this blue baby will stay out of the shop, like my other Hondas!
Powerful engine, removable eight person seat, numerous airbags, dual auto climate controls for the front, 6- Disc CD changer, sharp steering, 22mpg for me, power doors, light up controls on the wheel and power window switches, heated mirrors, the fact that all this is standard!
Eek out a couple more mpg. Maybe even drop 10 hp if you can get 21 mpg without cylinder deactivation. (I bought an EX with cloth, which doesen't come standard with VCM)
