Anyone drive a minivan or Honda pilot?

Right now we have a GMC Acadia. We like it. However, we are looking at minivans because we need more options for seating. Right now, we have 3 little ones in car seats, and we are open to the possibility of adding a 4th child in the next 12-18months, which would (obviously) mean another car seat. So, we are looking for an 8 seater that has 2 tether anchors (where a FF car seat tethers) in the 3rd row. I know the Honda Odyssey and the Honda Pilot (which I realize isn't a minivan) fit that.

Do any of you drive non-Hondas that have 8 seats and 2 3rd row tether anchors? What do you drive and how do you like it? For those that have the Honda Odyssey or Pilot, how do you like it?

We have a 2000 Honda Odyssey and LOVE it! As long as you take car of them, they last a long time. We've had ours for 1 1/2 years now. We got it from a Certified  Used Honda dealership. They made sure it was in tip top shape. With the condition it was in(Excellent) and the mileage on it, it blue booked around $9000, and we paid $10,000 for it.

We had a minivan and i LOVED it, it was so easy to move around in with carseats, very spacious, and really comfortable. I had a chevy but it was only 7 seats because we had bucket seats instead of a front bench seat

 My friend has a Honda Pilot and she loves it!  I like it too!  It's really nice and has lots of room!

We love our Pilot. It has 108,000 miles and going strong.  We have two kids, but I carpool and fit 3 more on a daily basis.  They fit comfortably, but you do lose storage space when you put that third row up.  I do know many people that love their Odyssey...one with four kids and she is very happy with it. : ) Good Luck in your search!

I have a pilot and I LOVE it!!! Lots of space and a smooth ride. We got it because we were trying for our third. Personally I don't like minivans, so after looking at suv's I fell in love with the pilot.
