Although Toyota vehicles have been most reliable based on my experience, I am open minded and have not been convinced any one brand is better than the next.
However, my 1970 Dodge van was the worst vehicle I have ever owned and I was disappointed when my 1999 Suzuki (Chevy ) Tracker had a recurring wheel bearing problem. I would probably be driving only Toyota except a close friend purchased a Chevy dealership and gave me good deals on the Tracker and Blazer.
One son owns a Honda Odyssey EX and the other 2 sons have Grand Caravan SEs. To me, both Grand Caravans seem quieter inside than the Odyssey EX and the Odyssey is the newest of the 3.

"My van is the best possible van for the best possible world. There is no van, better than my van. I am very happy with my perfectly wonderful van."
Thanks. I don't know what came over me.
Damn brainwashers from Chrysler and Toyota....

It's obvious that your Honda Implant Control Chip User Program (HICCUP) is malfunctioning. The next time you bring your van in to find out why the check engine light is on let them know that you think Chrysler makes nice vans. After you wake up in the rear seat well with no memory of the past several hours don't ask any questions.

I haven't posted here in a while. I no longer own a Honda Ody. I was pulled over helping a DC minivan owner who was stopped with the hood up, when a Freightliner plowed into my van and totaled it. I was not injured, but the live herpes zostar virus that I was transporting back to the lab was dispersed in the crash and I ended up with the shingles which put me out of commission for a while. Unable to work, I lost my job in a downsizing and found myself searching the classifieds for something to do. I finally accepted a job doing floor sales for a local DC dealership. Who would have thunk it?? Anyway, if anyone wants a good deal on a DC van or other product - look me up. I can't give any additional info. out as this would violate my use agreement with Edmunds.

I'm mostly sampling these days too. Without a dedicated fridge the brewing season here in south Texas is about 3 or 4 months. Having kids now doesn't help either. I'm sure the old lady will start in on me soon enough about the carboys, chiller coils, and soda syrup canisters eating up the garage space. Maybe with good brew hitting about $7 a six these days v. $5 a gallon for homebrew I can justify the economics of a dedicated fridge. Of course that involves divulging how much I spend on beer so maybe not.
#2383 of 7485 $5 a gallon?

You must be growing your own hops and malting your own barley. Anytime I've done it I figure I saved a few bucks but got a much better beer. At the costs I'm used to, it's hard to beat a six pack of Fraziskaner at Trader Joe's for $6.
Req content: Having a mini-van to transport the bottled product is handy. Maybe I'll see bdaddy about a DC and pick up a case of the shingles (good hoppy flavor) from him.

I hope you were joking, if not I want to hear your sales pitch...especially when a customer want you to do a DC Van vs. Ody.

I tell people that I used to own a Honda - it's a nice minivan. But to quote Adam, "if you want to surround yourself in the lap of luxury, in a MV with the most aggressive stance, then the DC top-line is the one for you:-)
#2386 of 7485 You want aggressive?

Then you need a clapped out Aerostar with a lowered suspension
#2387 of 7485 Excellent Post bdaddy

Best laugh I have had in years was when I read posting #2381 by bdaddy. But, credit must be given to crkeehn for post #2377, fezo for post #2379, and gess for #2380 which gave bdaddy the inspiration.
Why am I even in this forum when I think the new 2004 Sienna has all of the good features of the Odyssey and Chrysler minivans plus additional ones neither Honda nor Chrysler have copied from anyone else?
