I'm a car girl - worked for a car company (Toyota) for 17 years. I love my Toyota Sienna. It's super-comfy and has great features. The Honda is also an excellent model, very comparable to the Sienna, and I think slightly less expensive. The American minivans are also really nicely designed and comfortable, but tend to be less reliable in general.

When I dialed up my Consumer Reports site (I have a subscription), they only recommend the Sienna and the Odyssey. The other models had questionable reliability. (Dodge and Chrysler were too new to rate on reliability).

I've had a 2002 Toyota Sienna and now have a 2007 Nissan Quest. I love the Quest. I was able to get a lot more options on the Quest for less than a stripped down Sienna. I get about 18 mpg but all I do is around town driving (when I do drive on the highway for longer periods I get about 26 mpg).

I'm not much of a minivan girl but if I did get one it would be the Odyssey or the Town and Country. I've heard good things about both.

The Quest is very nice and super cool looking. We loved the one we test drove, but ended up not getting it because of a jerky sales staff.

I think the Quest is a great buy. I also have friends who LOVE their Honda and Toyata minivans and would recommend those too.

The resale on the Toyota and Honda will be better though if that is even a consideration.
