I never imagined I'd buy a minivan but it became necessary as the family grew and here I am. I've owned a few Hondas in the past (1999? civic si and 2000 s2000) and had good luck with them. I waited a long time to buy my new odyssey but am glad i did. Saw the concept at the auto show in Chi last feb and was ready to buy a van at the time but didn't want a Toyota so we patiently waited til the '11 came out and ordered one about a week after driving one.
