    New Vehicle Recs?

    Currently we have the dreaded Grand Caravan (2008). Because of this, my 2 girls in the back are in HBBs, the middle row we can use LBBs. We're expecting in March, so we'll be adding a RF seat soon, which I want in the middle row for accessibility. So my question is - anyone have a recommendation for a vehicle that would fit 3 boosters, and probably soon a couple of 5-steppers AND a RF seat? Bonus if it's an 8-seater so they can invite friends. MUST have AWD or 4WD and handle well in snow (I've heard the newer Odesseys aren't great with snow.)

    My first thought was a Sienna, but I don't have any experience with those. Are they good? Any model years to avoid? We've always had a minivan, so I don't know if there are other options that would be good.
