I did it all -- Edmunds, Consumer Reports, NHTSA, other buyers, Toyota, Chrysler/Dodge, Nissan, Ford Flex -- NONE compared to the Odyssey EX-L.
Add the RES (DVD system) for $1400 more and it becomes a no brainer.
Odysessy rides better than the rest.
It is quieter, best gas mileage, and Honda plastic is superior to all others, even nudges out the Toyota.
You must test drive each, look at the features/cost, resale value, trade-in values, financing options, and hands-on inspection.
I chose the Odyessy over the Toyota as costs were similar.
I chose it over the Chrysler because of the difference in features, quality of materials, road noise, looks, reliability, resale, etc.
Seat configurations, gas mileage, features, quality of build
No road or engine noise like the Chrysler
Doesn't sit on the ground like the Toyota
Doesn't look like a dust buster like the Nissan
Honda 1.9% APR
We compared side-by-side w/ a new Sienna and a 2013 Town and Country and it was a no-brainer.
