$40 more per month = $1440 over 36 months. The difference is not that minimal...

What is your feedback on the T&C?

It sucks.

Being a little more descriptive may help someone make a decision

no power, bad handling, drives like a truck. Oh sure they have bells and whistles but are the bells and whistles  any good. Ime they were terrible... And the only way they market themselves is with bells and whistles because they have to cover for how bad the car is.

Also depends on your needs. I'm pretty sure that the Town and Country only has 7 seats while the Odyssey has 8. For me that was important since my wife does carpool and sometimes needs the 8th seat.

The acceleration is a joke.  Also, my power sliding door has been malfunctioning almost from day one.

Thanks guys, this is exactly what I needed to hear. I don't need the 8th seat and I can live without the power doors. Odyssey it is.

it seems like this is a common marketing ploy which works! Just look at the cell phone market. :goes for cover from Samsung owners::P
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

I guess my question is why not buy?
And while you're at buy something decent with 8 seats and auto doors instead of the base.
Pickup a full 7 year warranty for $800 and you're good to go for a long time.

If only I had the negotiating skills that you pulled of with your Altima...

I guess the question would be how do I get the best price, and would I have to pay the whole thing down up front, or can I get the price even with financing?
