I wanted a van w/o the huge size so I bought an xB. It fits me to a "T." It is fairly comfy for long trips, not too noisy and easy to drive. It fits my dog and two passengers plus our luggage, or me plus 3 HS Football players and their equipment with legroom to spare. I hope it'll last at least 16 more years!
The high seating, comfort for four, small price and size but big on interior, great gas mileage - 33 mpg with an automatic transmission, easy to read gages, and bright exterior lighting.
Add lumbar support, move the hI-beam indicator to the speedometer pod, add more rake adjustment to the steering wheel, add cruise Control, and give it a larger gas tank.
