You are in the Vans & Minivans

Toyota Sienna, Honda Odyssey, Chrysler Town and Country, Dodge Caravan, Hyundai Entourage, Mazda MAZDA5, Kia Sedona, Car Comparisons, Car Buying, Van
#1060 of 1261 Looked closely again at all minivans (and most CUV/SUV)

AND the Odyssey, Sienna, Grand Caravan, and Town & Country are the only 2008 minivans that have comfortable seating for 7 adults + sufficient luggage for a week long vacation....unless one gets a gas guzzling Suburban, Yukon XL, Escalade ESV, or Expedition.
The Hyundai Entourage/Kia Sedona have very comfortable seats and leg space for driver, front passenger, and 2nd row passengers but the 3rd row seat is too low and has too little leg room for 8 or 9 years old or older.
The CUV's from ALL manufacturers have same problem as Entourage/Sedona but are not as easy to get into and have LESS cargo space behind 3rd row.
#1061 of 1261 2009 Sienna?

The 09 should be identical almost to 08 Sienna from what I'm seeing as an automotive supplier. I believe 2010 is a major redo for it.

For 08 they shuffled the packages and added Bluetooth and a couple of other minor items. I don't expect much for 09, either.
#1065 of 1261 BIG mistake in article: "Home on Wheels"... [dennisctc]

Article said best value is Grand Caravan SE with 3.8L V6. Sorry, but the 3.8L V6 is NOT available in the Grand Caravan SE in the United States.

This isn't meant as a slam on the Dodge/Chrysler, because they are excellent vehicles, but...
would you expect different from the Detroit press?

WHY would Detroit press be biased?
Neither the Grand Caravan nor Town & Country is made in Detroit. Both are made in either Windsor, Ontario or Fenton, Missouri.

I can only hope that was tongue-in-cheek.

If you read the credit for the review you will see the reviewer is from the Washington Post.
