Most cost effective car/van for 8 people?

Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks. Money's not a huge issue but we like to save wherever we can and we want a reliable one also. We've been looking around but we haven't had a whole load of time and it hasn't gone well so far!

  • How about one of those 9-Seater Buses or a Astro Van.

  • Have you looked at They have vehicles by catagory sorting out which have the truest low cost to own -- which takes into account starting cost, resale value, repair averages, etc. Its very helpful.

    I would be looking at mini-vans with the 8th seat option. Pretty sure Honda Odyssey comes with it and the Toyota Sienna. Mini-vans are nice because typically they get better gas MPG then large SUVs.
