Honda Odyssey: the ultimate family car.
We love all of the thoughtful additions for parents. We keep finding little storage compartments everywhere. There are three in the front dashboard/ console area and one under the passenger seat as well as under the floor right behind the front row of seats. We lie ow easy it is to fold the seats down and the storage in the back is incredible. Our doors have stopped opening all the way, and we sometimes have to pull the handle twice. The gas mileage is a huge plus. We have not had any serious engine problems, just regular maintenance. We would recommend this car to anyone with a family. We have done all day road trips with eight people and as long as the people in the back seat are kids, everyone was comfortable. The rack on the top is a plus and we love how the air conditioning has an auto setting. All you do is tell the car what temperature you want it to be and it automatically heats or cools. It is just like a thermostat at home. One downside is that everything is so cramped under the hood that it is hard to do any work on the car yourself unless you really know what you are doing.
