Update! being that i was the OP just wanted to let you guys know i ended up buying  a 2011 sienna le with 35,500
miles for $18,700 (total including his fee, $350 i think) it was a lease buyout the deal was facilitated by elisha levene of unique motors (lakewood). Very Recommended he was great !
Comparable odysseys were close to 23,00 with no backup camera (on ex model) (2011Sienna has on le) Being that it was less than 36,000 miles, and 2 weeks before 3 years  it was still under warranty,
so got a free water pump $600 value,:) .
Also top of the line new tires had been put on 3 months prior.
Had it inspected, was in great shape besides for  needing a new water  pump which was Free, and needed New brakes, which cost me close to
$600.
I am totally thrilled,love the drive
Overall satisfaction 10/10
Tis'chadesh. Glad to hear you are happy with your decision.

True. Honestly I have driven all 3 and i like the way the Odyssey drives the most.
The Toyota is very smooth but the handeling is very loose, the Quest is more "sporty" because it's a Nissan.
The Odyssey is very middle ground, very smooth but not loose.
I rented it once for a long road trip,
Pros: for the driver its realy amazing, smooth, quiet, good pick up and good gas, I would forsure take it over anything else.
Con: it's not as big, smaller trunk and 3rd row dosent have too much leg room.
Some people claim that due to its shape it'd get pushed around alot when it's windy on the highway.
Drove all 3 today and I thought the Quest had the nicest drive.  Very similar to my Altima and it doesn't feel like driving a boat as the Ody does.

But the Quest's trunk space just seemed sad compared to the Ody.

1 repair in 7 years and it pays for itself, no?

Thoughts on Honda Care warranty?

I bought an 8 year extended warranty for my Odyssey.  It comes with free roadside assistance, which is quite valuable in and of itself.  There are other benefits including a free loaner if your car needs warranty work in excess of a certain amount of time.

Also, you do not have to buy the warranty from your dealer or from a local dealer.  Any authorized Honda dealer can sell you a warranty, and the cost is typically a LOT less than what your local dealer charges.  I paid 1380 for a 0 deductible 100k mile 8 year warranty.  If you figure the cost of roadside assistance for 8 years at a conservative 50.00 a year, that brings the cost of the warranty down to 980.  Also, since I got my warranty from an out of state Honda dealer, there was no added tax.

My local dealer wanted about 2k for the same warranty, inclusive of tax.

If anyone is interested, I bought my warranty from Curry Honda.
Here is the contact info: Dave Heffernan 877-227-8422.
What do you do after your dreams come true?

The 7 year/80K with no deductible seems to be the sweet spot.
Why is that 8th year so much more money?
