what is the most reliable used minivan?
I never thought I'd get a van... but now I'm shopping for a van. I have a wife, a baby, another baby on the way and two in-laws living with me. I looked into seven seater SUVs, but it looks like vans just do the job better; or at least more conveniently.
So we just went to the Chrysler/Dodge dealer and looked at the Pacifica and the Caravan (a mid-tier one as the wife wants a rear camera) and it looks like after taxes the price would be 30-35k for the Caravan vs 40-45k after taxes for the Pacfica. The 2017 Odyssey would probably be around 40k and the Sienna, Sedona, etc are probably in the same ballpark. I'm sure I could bargain that down a bit but it's still a lot of money. So now I'm looking into the used car market.
I'm looking for recommendations for which minivans would be a reliable pick assuming the car is certified pre-owned and a 2013-2015 model. For example, on autotrader it looks like an Odyssey would cost about 25k and a Grand Caravan about 19k... but would a 3-year-old used Caravan be a reliable option?
Thanks in advance.
