    Smile Picked up a new Odyssey yesterday!

    It's gor-geous! Wish we would've traded in a long time ago!

    The kids wanted to sleep in it last night.
    They were so sweet offering up their tooth fairy money to help 'pay' for it.

    I've had friends ask how I chose the Ody... and I keep telling them, safety ratings came FIRST... everything else was secondary.

    And all the bells and whistles on it are an added BONUS.
    Gotta love that back up cam and built in DVD.

    So now we've got a Compass booster in the back, Radian and Husky in the capt chairs. Great install on the Radian (FF latch)... the Husky is a little too wiggly for my liking. I'm going to have DH work on it tonight again.

    Anway... thanks everyone for answering all my questions past few weeks!

    Congratulations on the mini-van. We love our Odyssey, too; though we didn't splurge for the touring model.

    If only everyone thought mini-vans were cool. The world would be a safer and less polluted place!

    Glad your family's enjoying it!

    Congrats! Aren't you glad to be rid of the Gen 3 seatbelts?

    Our next van will be an Ody. My mom has one that she bought the same time as our Town & Country, and she's only had a few minor problems since then, while we've had lots of pricey repairs. Gotta love Honda!

    sure about that? as far as i know, no minivans are built to the strictest category of US emissions standards (currently PZEV, same standard that hybrids meed), but many passenger cars are built to these strictest standards. not to mention that most minivans are overall gas guzzlers compared with small economy cars like civics, corollas, fits, etc. but i think you are referring to minivans versus SUVs, in which case yes, minivans would be generally an improvement in that regard.

    WOOT!!!

    CONGRATS!!!!


    Ok, now I have to tell you....If I hadn't read my manual word for word I wouldn't have known about all the cool and neat things the Ody has.

    Like the airbag system, cool light above the center tray, maintenance minder, valve shut-off system, etc...

    I've been thinking about your sweet Caroline ever since I read your story this afternoon.

    God be with you and I pray he rains down strength on your precious family.

    She's such a sweet angel baby.... embrace those memories but try to keep your eyes forward for your family. They need you.

    And I don't know what your faith belief is... but I firmly believe you'll see your Caroline again one day.

    BTW... I have a very good friend who also has children named Will and Caroline... so your story touched me that much more.

    ((((hugs to you))))
