I will pick it up tomorrow very excited.

Congrats! Enjoy your new van!

We rented a dodge caravan for a trip to FLA last summer. A week after we came home we bought the T&C. A huge difference in the ride and comfort. We have since driven it on a trip to FLA. We have leather and DVD and paid just over 26. We love it.

I am on my 3 rd T n C. If I crashed tommorow I'd go for a 4 th

1 st 1 sold for 1/3 of pp ( bought new) 8 yrs n 125k miles ok it

2 nd one ( bought new). Gave to nanny as a bonus ( value 3-4k or about 1/5 th the orig price) 10 yrs n 120k miles


Just bought 2010 used ( couldn't justify a 33k ck n won't finance) will drive it 8-10 yrs.


Both the 1 st 2. Never had a real problem. In fact the 1 st after nearly 200k miles still had a trade in of 2k I think.

We have been very happy with both our Siennas. We're looking to buy another car in the future and we keep thinking we want a third Sienna if they are still making them in three or so years.

I like the 5 - a family friend has one.

I'm a Nissan fan - my 97 Altima has 191+K miles
The Quest is good looking for a van.

We loved our Mazda MPV, but it is in the great scrap heap in the sky

Minivans are awesome

Half of the time we're rushing around to get things done last minute or we realize we're running behind so we need to catch up

I have a 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan. It's pretty much fully loaded except it doesn't have leather. Love having the backup camera and the dvd player for my daughter. Also love the stow and go because I can put a lot of things in there when we travel to Disney World. It's already been down to DW twice and we are taking it in June when we go again.
