We bought our Town and Country last year before we were expecting #5. It stinks for carseats and having 5 kids. We want a Odyssey with 8 seats. We were very close to buying a 2011 but it was so stressful because it was more than we wanted to spend. We decided to stop looking and revisit in a few months. Obviously an older Ody would fit us better financially, but was curious if the older models are just as good as the newer - as far as the 2nd row seating? Maybe a 2010? How much of a difference is there between the 2011 and up and the 2010 and down models. I realize that we are then buying an older minivan but Hondas are really reliable. I wish we would've just gotten the Ody last year instead of getting in this mess.
