I did not want a minivan despite my wife's request until I found the Quest! Suspension is tight with a powerful engine and has great external design. I enjoy driving it and don't mind being seen in it. No mechanical probs in past 3 yrs. It gets 20 mpg regularly despite its weight and power. On our 4 hour drive up north for vacation my wife and I were talking about what a good decision we made to buy this vehicle 3 yrs ago.
Engine, suspension, sound system, interior space, external appearance, 2nd row collapsible seats, easy fold into floor 3rd row bench, digital controls for everything.
40/60 split for bench. Collapsible head rests for bench rather than ones that must be removed. Operational windows for sliding doors.
