Awesome Minivan. — PROS I'm a new dad & Minivan w/ the convenience package is awesome. Power slide doors + lift gate. Loading the baby seat is so much easier than having a sedan. Backup camera almost seems like a must. being able to control back climate is awesome! Whether on freeway or surface roads, the ride comfort is great. Generally quiet and very smooth. I've test driven the 2008 odyssey EX-L I felt that the sienna had a smoother ride. Among the 2008 minivan designs, the car looks more luxurious. I would say that the exterior design of the odyssey looks more complete, however odyssey interior is tacky startrek like. the interior of the sienna is not spectacular but just better than what i've seen in other cars. Having a minivan with that much space is awesome. Fit full grill (gift for dad) + stroller & pack & play and our own bags for a weekend trip.... easy. CONS The handling could be much better. I think they lose on the stability by trying to have more ride comfort. You can feel the sway on corners. The turn radius is no problem, I can make a U-turn anywhere my camry can. But you just feel like you have so much less control. I believe the hondas have better stability on corners. Going up hill the new bigger engine sounds like a truck engine. Some what loud. When cruising, it's quiet. I think the brakes could be better. It's one of those, they're not bad and I don't think of them too much, but they don't impress me at all and sometimes I wish they were better. Price: the CE & LE models are well priced. But XLE & Limited are way more expensive. It makes sense though for a reliable and well built car. i dropped a pretty penny for my 2008 Limited.

Great Family Car — Loved the rear seats being able to fold up easily and 3rd seats disappear into the back without taking them out of vehicle. Great rear air, zippy take acceleration, like middle console between front seats. Over all very happy with this vehicle.

A Great Vehicle — I don't like that it is FWD vs. AWD, and that is why I am changing cars (although I got new tires this past fall and that made winter driving a breeze; it handled very well). I love driving the car - comfortable, good acceleration. It is roomy and very comfortable for the whole family (the dual power doors are wonderful and so convenient). This car has been maintenance free (oil changes).

Pros

Excellent ride and handling for a minivan (far better than our past Chrysler products). Good power when you need it. Quiet inside.

Cons

Engine is a bit noisy (ticking sound) when cold. Once inside, you cannot hear it, but standing outside you can.

Good Value In A Minivan. — The best thing about this van specifically is the AWD. It goes through the snow with ease and confidence. The power is good and the handling is the best in a minivan (we've had a 4 other minivans so far). The only real negative is the gas mileage. It is common for it to dip down to 17-18 mpg.

Perfect Family Car By spoto7

Love the power doors, and the eighth seat. Luggage rack is a plus, as we found the trunk to be slightly cramped. The split third row seat, that fold down and store out of the way are a plus as well. Read More
