2012 Honda Odyssey Review
says:
Love, love, love my mini-van. Wait, did I really just type that?! Who knew! It has all the bells and whistles (at least the ones that were available in 2012), room for kids, dogs, and even my hubby. Comfortable ride, lots of technology and safety features, dual dvd/tv on same screen so kids can watch two different movies at the same time. Cooler built in for milk cups for toddler.

Handling Ranked 2012 Nissan Quest worse.
"It just isnt quite as boxier, and seems a little smoother - tight turning."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2012 Nissan Quest better.
"The boxy shape had to come in handy somewhere, right?"

Perfect Car For A Mom With Two Or More Kids — Smooth ride, very powerful for a mini van, extremely safe, and reliable. Perfect for long car rides, my children love the dvd player. I was initially not too keen on buying a van, being a manly man and all... but the power and smooth handling took me by surprise.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Dependable, smooth ride

Cons: Fuel economy, and limited leg room in the front seats

Stylish, Clean, Roomy And Affordable Van — Overall, I have had an awesome time with this van. We have driven here there and everwhere and our odyssey have been reliable and comfortable. Even with all of the snow, my van have never left stuck. This van has brand new tires and brakes. Out of 10 stars, I give my van a 10.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: This is a great family car.  The interior is large and comfortable with a lot of trunk space.  This van is also great on gas and rides like a car.

Cons: I wish it was an all wheel drive but Honda does not make their vans in all wheel drive.  However,  the front wheel drive is awesome in the snow with good tires.

after checking and observing both vehicles, we chose the Honda Odyssey. It offered the most value for the money required.
