It all depends on how the vehicles were taken care of. I'd personally avoid the Freestar, that doesn't get very good reviews, even though I would recommend other Ford vehicles. Stick with a Honda vehicle of your choice, though I'd try to find some with less miles. Around 100K is better.

Great, thanks Tom! I've read some of the same stuff regarding Freestar vs. Odyssey vs. Sienna. 2002 Honda Odyssey EX w/ 140k miles is a one-owner with a (30-day) warranty from a VERY respected (small garage) mechanic / sales shop in town. 2006 Honda Pilot EX-L (loaded) w/ 150k miles is private seller that has been the only owner and taken great care of it with all records. Prices seem very fair ... Ody ~$5500 / Pilot ~$8500 ... will this $3k difference be worth it (in reliability / resale alone - forget about differences in SUV vs van)? There seems to be NO Pilots in that $4-6k price range while lots of vans (and billions of Freestars of course) ... indication I'll get that $2-3k difference back later via resale and/or reliability savings? I'm looking at owning all my vehicles outright (no payments / loans / leases) ... hence the price range I'm looking at and all the reliability questions :) Thanks for your time!

Also take in consideration between the 3K difference is the 4 year age difference of the vehicles you are looking at. But it all really comes down to if you want a van or SUV. Good luck!
