Iíve driven minivans for over 30 years. Every time i was in the market for a new car, I admired the sedans, SUVs, pickup trucks and Jeepís, but nothing met the utility of a minivan.
We are a recently retired couple and love our Honda Odyssey. It has tons of room inside and can haul full sheets of plywood or lots of friends and family. It has lots of passing power but gets 25 mpg on the highway. Itís amazing how much stuff we pile up inside, because we have the room to do so!
The ride is comfortable enough and 500 mile days are easy.
Every time we consider a different kind of vehicle, we just canít give up the room and economy.
