Toyota Sienna

We opted for the Sienna over the Odyssey mostly due to driver's seat comfort. We could NEVER feel like we had the seat adjusted right in the Honda EX-L. In the Sienna, it felt so much better and we could actually SEE the speedometer. The steering wheel in the Odyssey seemed like it must be for some woman who was 5'4". Our arms never felt right - like there was no place to put them and the dinky captains area between the two front seats sucked.

One word of advice if you go for the Sienna - if you get the AWD version - insist on different tires. The run-flat tires are still a joke these days and a waste of time and money. Who cares if the tires get you to the next town/gas station when you might have to special order the damn tires ? Not every model has a spare tire on it either - you want to make sure you have a donut somewhere.

We mostly went for the Sienna/Odyssey for repair history and for resale value. Those things hold value like nobody's business.

If you want to compare the cars at consumer reports - let me know and I'll give you my login for it.
