  • I have a 2006 Town and Country and I LOVE it. We test drove a BRAND new one ad Ididn't like it as well as my 06. It has stow and go and also my back seat is almost always out cause I haul alot of crap. It is spacious and gets pretty good gas milage (about 22 in town which is GREAT for a van) The only thing I don't like about it is the cloth seats. I have to keep them covered so they don't get stained. All my other vehicles have leather and it's soooo easy to clean.

  • I hate my Dodge Grand Caravan. It is a 2001 though. My friend has a new one and it's nice. I don't know how it does on gas though.

  • Screw Dodge mini van. We had so many problems with that van. I will never buy a dodge again. I will never buy a mini van again. My next purchase will be a full size high top van.

  • The best minivan is any van not parked in my driveway..lol. Sorry. I detest mini vans. I would drive my mothers 1973 station wagon before a van. Having said that We know several people with the Honda Odyssey and they couldn't be happier.

  • I have had a Chrysler Town and COuntry, a madza MPV, a Ford Windstar, and a Nissan Quest, and a Pontiac Montana.......I now drive a big Lincoln navigator, but if I had to buy another minivan, I would go with the Honda. You can usually never go wrong with a HOnda.

  • We have a 2008 Town and Country minivan and I gotta say, I LOVE it. It was the best car purchase that we have ever made. It has stow n go seating for the back seats and we are able to take out the middle seats if we needed too. It also gets great gas mileage too.

  • We have a 08 Honda Odyssey. I swore I would never drive a mini van because I was not a soccer mom but once I became a mom with three children under 8 I had no choice. When we were car shopping we test drove every mini van u can think of and the Odyssey hands down was the best. We drove a brand new Dodge caravan around for a week and decided not to buy it after driving the Odyssey for two days. The Odyssey has seating features that beats the Dodge Caravan stow and go by far and it holds its value better than all the other mini vans on the market. If you have any questions you can send me a message.
