    Default HELP ME PICK A NEW CAR

    Ok my current lease is being transferred and I need to pick a new family car.
    The problem is I can't make up my mind lol.
    I have 2 kids and oh yea the wife. The current car is a Toyota Rav4 way too small.
    I have the following cars I need to pick from Honda Odyssey or Pilot and the Nissan Pathfinder.
    I need something with plenty of trunk room for the kids stuff when we go on road trips. So if any other suggestion please feel free.
    Thanks for your help

    isn't the Pilot in the same class as Rav 4?
    I voted for the minivan.

    Pilot has the 3rd row seating you must be thinking of the Toyota 4runner.

    I think he was thinking of the Honda CRV. Looks like your fairly committed to Japanese 8 passenger vehicles? If not the tahoe/suburban or GMC equivalent is a nice pick for SUV, while the VW routan minivan would get my vote as best minivan out there. The Nissan Maurano might also deserve a place on your list although with the third row trunk space is limited. I prefer Nissan to Honda or Toyota but there is no reason other then rooting for the underdog and I think their styling is slightly better. Either way if you stick with them I can't see reliabilty ever being an issue and resale value should stay relatively high so it just a matter or finding one you like the look of the most and are most comfortable driving.

    I voted pilot my uncle had one and loved it. But I must say the seats were killer for long hauls but his was also one of the early ones. You may also check out the Ford explorer I've heard theyre really nice too. Good luck.
    No that pistol isn't the only thing under my kilt, but I can tell you both of them work just fine

    Dodge journeys are really nice cars. They have a ton of room. They have three rows of seats in which the third row folds down. I'm five feet 9 inches and can lay down in the back (with the seats folded down) and not touch either the back hatch or the 2nd row seats. Tons of wonderful features too.

    Something made in the USA would be my first requirement for a new vehicle. YMMV.
    Be careful how you treat people on your way up, you may meet them again on your way back down.

    Emotional reasons or rational reasons?
    I've thought about this argument, and some people say you have to 'buy American'. But the flip side is that unless the American is equivalent to the foreign car, you're rewarding the American company to produce sub-par cars.

    Then again, I've seen places in the US where non US cars or bikes stand a good chance of being vandalized. So buying an American car could be a rational choice, even though it might not be when comparing just specs and price.

    Guys thanks allot for the input. I was looking at American like a Tahoe or something along those lines but the lease prices are crazy 700+ a month for a 35k car. Just not worth it. And most Japanese cars are build in the USA anyway lol.
