So, oldpunk is getting even older and I with the news that we're expecting a 3rd kid have found myself in the market for a minivan. Sigh*

I'd love to be able to afford the payments on a Honda but that darn van, along with the Toyota are out of my price range. (Not looking at getting something with over 30,000 miles)

I've never really been a fan of Nissan so I'm not looking at the Quest. At least not yet anyways... I guess there's the KIA too.

Right now I'm stuck between 2 pretty different choices. The Mazda5 (new)and a 2011 Town and Country.

Now, I've owned Mazdas before and loved the ones I had. I'm just worried the 5's not going to be big enough. I've read it both ways when it comes to the Chrysler. I'm a little worried about the reliability from Detroit. Scared to death actually.

Keep in mind that this vehicle will generally be used for commuting to work and picking kids up from school. We'd use something else for long trips.

I'd love to hear an outside opinion or 2.
