    8 passenger car

    Our car was totaled so we have to find something new ASAP. Price range is 10K or less (could stretch to $12 if absolutely necessary). We have been looking at 06-11 8 passenger sienna's but haven't found anything acceptable. We are running out of time and need to consider other 8+passenger vehicles. What else should we be looking at?

    Stats-Family of six+one on the way. 13 yr old-5 stepping but long legged, 9yr-old, 5 stepping in most cars, 6 yr old-FF in maestro, Radian, or Frontier, 3 yr old-RF in britax BLVD, ready to move up to the Radian soon. Infant will be in a bucket of some sort.

    Re: 8 passenger car

    Honda Odyssey has an 8 passenger model during the same years you mentioned. Though the 8th seat is really small.

    The Honda Pilot is also an 8 seater.

    Going way back, I believe an 05 Chevy Astro seats 8.

    You may be able to find a 10 passenger older Dodge Sprinter.

    We ended up bumping our budget up significantly and buying a 2011 Honda Odyssey with the 8th seat. We were in a serious time crunch and had run out of options. We really like it though.
