I've owned 4 Hondas, including this one (3k so far). This is by far my favorite one! I love the styling, features, road feel, comfort, and just about everything. It's true that sometimes wind noise is a little loud on the highway, but it will not keep you from having a conversation with the other passengers. The Rear Ent. Sys is a definite must-have, whether you have children or not. Also, I have no idea what it must be like to drive this van without a rear-view camera. This van just feels solid, safe, and reliable!
VCM (helps with gas mileage), DVD, rear-view camera, air bags all-around, comfort, convenience, features, styling (except wheels, see below).
Wheels on the previous models were better-looking, in my opinion. Better sound-proofing (some wind noise is noticeable). Brakes can be a little tighter (less travel). Some trim pieces may seem loose, but that's just aesthetics to me.
