Aside from being a Honda fanboy, the Odyssey shits on a majority of the competition. 2013 Toyota Sienna SE V6 is a very close second. My young ones are only 2 and 4 months, so no need for a minivan just yet, but if I were to get one; it would be the Odyssey most probably. Lots of very nice and easy to use features, luxury ride, and the reliability of a Honda.

Ford Flex with EcoBoost V6 engine. Crazy hp/torque (365/350) and has an amazing amount of electronic stuff packed into it.

Also, does not look like a soccer mom van. Save your balls man, save your balls.

Every person I have seen driving a flex was buried in it. They don't hold value for shit, and the electronics are very finicky.

The odyssey is nice, has the whole Honda benefit. But you can probably get a better deal on the Toyota, and it too is a nice van. I like the Nissan quest, but I hate nissan's in general.

Buried? Domestics don't hold value at all, but that vehicle you can chip and add a larger turbo for quick power.

Mercedes don’t hold their value for shit but that doesn’t stop your people from buying them and crashing them into sand dunes.
