First Time Minivan Owner

2010 Honda Odyssey EX 4dr Minivan w/Rear Entertainment (3.5L 6cyl 5A)
We purchased our Odyssey in July 2010 and have really enjoyed the experience so far. The Odyssey gives us plenty of space for our 2 small sons (3 1/2 yrs & 1 1/2 yrs) with room to spare. We love the space behind the front seats which prevents the kids from kicking the backs of our chairs. We don't worry about the kids getting fussy on long trips because of the Rear DVD player. The power sliding doors are very helpful. The drivability is good, the steering is responsive, the engine has good pickup, and the ride is soft yet firm. The brakes could be improved, but are ok for a car of this size and weight. So far we love this van as the perfect way to transport our family of 4!
Good overall drivability, comfortable seats, Rear Entertainment System, 2nd row sunshades, 2nd row MagicSeat, split fold down 3rd row seats, MP3/WMA compatibility.
AWD for wintry climates, stronger brakes, make the ventilation controls more intuitive(too many buttons!) and easier to read (LCD in the daylight), trip computer (miles to empty etc.) should be standard on more trim levels, especially on a car targeted at long distance driving.
