I got a little ribbing being a dad in a mini-van but after I smoked a number of cars on the interstate, that came to a quick end. The EX-L is very handy on weekend errands and is great traveling with the family allowing us plenty of room to stretch out. It is also great having room for a large lab and numerous teammates on my son's lax team with their equipment. My Accord EX-L could never have done so much. My Ody handles just as well as my Accord. I was surprised especially when I test drove the Sienna which seemed like driving a parade float.
