van recommendations?

We are looking to buy a used car. Preferably under the $10,000 range. We have a 03, 06, and 07 town and country on our list to check out.
Anyone have any recommendations on older vans?

I think I would prefer one that doesn't have a bench seat in the middle row. I think it may be easier that way. We have a 7 year old 2 year old, and a LO due in January.

I don't like vans myself. My soon to be hubby likes them and he is always trying to get me to get a Honda Odyssey. Honda's are good and last long.

I can't say I love them either. But I love the idea of more room. 3 carseats across is not easy to do. Not to mention its really hard to find a car wide enough to fit them. Even with the right carseats. :(

We just traded our Honda Fit for a Honda Pilot. So much more room. It seats 7. You might want to look into something like that. This is what it looks like...

My dd loves her ford explorer SUV, with hatch back and third row seating. I love the dodge grand caravan but its on consumer reports list of cars that need a lot of repair. Go to library and look at this years issue of consumer reports car ratings. There is a federal car safety website, too.

I love my dodge caravan. I think it's easier as a 7 passenger otherwise you will have 3 kids in 1 row

That is a good choice. I like it.

Most of the suvs with 3rd row we have looked at are way out of our price range.
