We're selling our 05 Ody so that we can get a mini we can actually afford. :

Can you all who are carseat/mini knowledgable tell me of a good older minivan that will fit 4 carseats, or can be retro-fitted for 4 LATCH? My Ody only has 3 LATCH and cannot be retro-fitted which I find really annoying. :

Right now I have my 4yo boys in Regents, and a 2yo girl in a Scenera (: -- she's getting a Britax when she hits 40lbs or when we can afford it)

I don't know much about minivans, but I do know this: only certain VW and Audi models can have LATCH retrofitted. Pretty much everything else can have top tether anchors installed, but not lower anchors. So if you want a minivan that has LATCH lower anchors, you need a 2002 or newer.
My parents drive DD around in a 2002 Dodge Caravan. They only use the middle seat and the rest is just cargo storage, but I do know that the middle seat has latch anchors (lower anchors AND tether anchors) for both seating positions. I can't imagine that the back row wouldn't also have LATCH. So maybe that's one option!
Hondas do not have center LATCH (we have a Civic). And I agree, that is annoying, considering how much $ we paid for them!
