I know, I know....it's a minivan, but it really does improve your quality of life. It's incredibly thoughtfully designed and intuitive. It's a fantastic car for roadtrips, and if you're a parent and need to know your vehicle will work, and will be safe it puts your mind at ease. It's notably more expensive than some of the peers in its class, but it really is a better ride. For equipment you use frequently, it makes sense to invest in what you really want, and I'm glad I did.
Our egos were making us hesitant to buy an odyssey, but now I wish we would have done it sooner. We have a 6 month old and the odyssey has all the storage room you would want. Someone can actually sit in the front passenger seat (with the car seat behind them) and be very comfortable with plenty of room. The van rides and drives great. So far the gas mileage has been good for this size vehicle with a V-6 at around 25 to 26 mpg on average. We love this van and would really recommend it.

The van is spacious and the seats are comfortable. The back seat folds down flat into the well. I call it a well, but it's actually a seat storage compartment. The middle seats are removable. I usually take one middle seat out and it gives me ample space to haul things. For instance, I recently purchased some furniture and was able to place the items nicely in my van. Plus, the items you are hauling do not get wet like a pickup. The van drives like a car so it should be easy for any driver. I love the backup camera as it helps me to avoid an accident while backing. As long as you keep the oil changed and do all of your service checkups, this vehicle will keep running and last a long time.
