I bought this van a year and half ago.
It was the best purchase I have ever made.
I haul around 3 large dogs, 3 children from 5-13 and there is still room for the husband and our luggage.. I put 25k miles on the van in less than 2 years. I only ever had in the shop for routine oil changes and tire rotation.
I bought this van for its convenience, comfort and above all safety.
The van is loaded with safety features.
Sadly, just this week I was t-boned from the drivers rear by a driver speeding off an exit ramp. The van performed exactly the way I had hoped it would should an accident occur.
The van is totaled and I am walking with only minor injuries.
If you want safe, get Honda!
The space.. Everyone was always comfortable.
I drove my van back and forth to california this summer (1800 miles one way) my body never got sore.
I have the rear entertainment system.. the kids enjoyed their trip.
There was more than enough space for everyone 3 adults and 2 children, plus 2 weeks worth of luggage and room for the trinkets to come back home.
I loved the cooler feature, so we could keep our drinks chilled!
Its the small things that make long trips comfortable.
larger cooler or a small seperate one for the snacks to go.
