The ride is very smooth and the van feels so solid, it really feels like you are driving an Acura.
We got the EXL to get a ton of goodies and nothing too frivilous.
I can't consider $2k for nav when I need it once a year and can buy an aftermarket for $200.
And I don't want my kids watching DVDs the second they get in the car.
The EXL has tons of great features; my favorite being the CD Library -- it'll record about 400 songs from your CDs to a hard drive.
The safety is top notch, great crash test, large rear view camera is very comforting.
We've been averaging 24 mpg in mild weather -- no A/C.
It's the only minivan you can fit 2 carseat and a Granni in the middle row.
