You are in the Vans & Minivans
What is this discussion about?

I've been using edmunds alot during our current search for a mini van. We're about a month into the process and have narrowed it down to either the Odyssey ex-L or Sienna XLE. I'm getting fairly comparable offers (little lower for the Honda actually) for each but with the Sienna I'd use the 36 month 0% financing.

Welcome, first of all.
Let us know if you have any questions. I have an 07 Sienna LE, but the Ody was a close 2nd choice. At the time of my purchase, the Ody cost a bunch more for what I wanted.
IMHO if you want comfort and isolation, go with the Sienna. If you are willing to sacrifice a bit of road noise and a harder ride, the Ody is more rewarding to drive, sportier and with more steering feedback.
Both are good choices. Toyota's engine sealed the deal for me, though.

If I was the one driving this all the time I'd go with the Toyota without a doubt because of the stronger engine. My wife prefers the ergonomics of the Honda and said she can't tell much difference driving the 2. We'll see what kind of pricing we can get and decide.

2007 Odys were a steal a little while ago, but they may be all gone.
If you can get a deal on the 2008s, go for it.
Back in May of last year an Ody EX was about $1800 more than my similarly equipped Sienna. Actually the Sienna had a tad more content than the Honda.
Toyota changed content levels a bit for 2008 - the tow prep package and DRLs are extra-cost options that were standard on my van.
Definitely shop around. An Odyssey EX has about the same content as a Sienna LE with EVP #2. There are minor differences - Honda has climate control while Toyota has a trip computer at that price.
What is your price range?

Hi, Newbie, just signed on. have a Chevy Astro Van, no problems except right front door window goes up veeeery slowly or not at all. side sliding door bolt rides up and comes out (already found a fix for this on this forum, THANX) fan speed for A/C and heater switch will not work on HI, #1 and #2 work fine.

Hi! I just picked up a Nissan Quest S, and would like to add an aftermarket Nav + Rear Cam system to it.
Where's the best place to get any feedback from other members, or see what others have done in a similar minivan or other vehicles?

Hmm, there is a rear-seat entertainment thread, but it's not very busy.
I would ask in the Quest threads and in the general comparison threads for vans.
