With the third child on the way, our family was no longer going to fit in a sedan comfortably. The search for the perfect minivan was on. After narrowing the field to the Honda Oddysey and the Toyota Sienna, it was time to move from the internet to the showroom. After test driving the Sienna there was no doubt this was the van for us.
We decided on the base level van - it has everything we need - airbags front and side, V6 engine, cruise control, decent mileage for a minivan and power windows. The automatic sliding door would have been nice, but wasn't worth the $1, 000+ to get it.
The handling of this van is what won us over. It has a tighter turning radius than our Honda Accord and is very nimble. I often forget that I am driving a bulky minivan.
We have now had the van for one and a half years and it is still doing great. We have only had to take it in for standard maintenance and we would definitely choose this van again.
I would highly recommend this van to any family wanting great quality for a reasonable price, good styling and a great ride.
