Hi. I need some purchasing (or leasing) advice:
I have a family of 6. We are looking to replace our 11 year old Honda Odyssey. We live in NY, and recently moved to a woodsy area with bad roads. We feel we need 4 wheel or AWD for both ground clearance and to handle snowy hilly roads.
Also, we take long family trips a few times a year and would like our car to comfortably accommodate all 6 of us, plus our luggage/equipment.
The Odyssey is very comfortable and can accommodate our cargo needs. But, it is too low to the ground and doesn't have AWD. We considered the Toyota Sienna because it can accommodate us and our cargo, but it doesn't have good clearance.
Any suggestions would be very appreciated!
Thank you so much!
We live in MN and my daughter and son-in-law drive a Honda Pilot that they love. It's AWD and is very comfortable, handles well in the snow and fits extra passengers well in the third back seat. He recently drove over 1000 miles with 4 other grown men to play baseball. They did add a luggage rack for extra equipment, but travelled comfortably and were still all friends when they got home.
