Well, we finally outgrew our mid-size
car and had to purchase a minivan. We
chose between a Honda Odyssey and a
Toyota Sienna. We really liked the
Odyssey's magic seat, but realized that
with five family members we couldn't
afford to "lose" all three seats in the
back. The Sienna offered an easy
folding 50/50 split third seat which I
have already used. Also, the Sienna had
skid control as well as traction control
- Odyssey only had traction control.
Both minivans had great crash test
ratings, but the Sienna had better
reliability rating by Consumer Reports.
My husband dreaded buying a minivan, but
has been very pleased with the Sienna.

Reduce the massive dashboard and nose of
vehicle; change slope of windshield to
reduce glare of dashboard which ends up
right in my line of sight; get rid of
ashtrays/lighter; day running lights
should turn off as soon as vehicle is in
park; bigger glove box instead of large
