We have an '07 Odyssey. I swore I"d never drive a minivan, yet here I am. With 3 kiddos in car seats, it was pretty much our only option, since we also need to have seating for 3 adults fairly often.
While I liked it well enough for 2 years, we just took the kiddos on a LONG drive from MN to PA, and I now adore my Ody!!!! I get back pain sitting in a car for more than 2 hours, but we were in the Ody for 19 hours getting out there and I had no discomfort at all.
Our Ody only has the 1 lower anchor in the back (middle seat) row, so it's great that the newer ones has the 2.
