Help please lads. My mom needs a new minivan.

Help please lads. My mom needs a new minivan. She used to drive a 2006 Honda Odyssey (like pic rel), and we basically want a new car that's just like that.
We don't care about gay features like fricking hulu playing through the dashboard or whatever. Just want a simple minivan that does the job and is roomy on the inside.
Also, it would be nice if it was a hybrid I think (to save on gas).
Also, for boomer reasons, the car will only be bought new from an official dealership prolly (so no used/old cars).
Please and thank you.

      why though? Isn't it the ultimate family car?

        The ultimate family car is the station wagon. Trends come and go. We really don't need a huge minivan market. Between the Honda, Toyota, Chrysler, and Kia, the market is pretty competitive. Just don't get the Kia whatever you do.

          need more room than a station wagon. Especially if you've ever moved apartments and stuff.

          Currently, I want to go with the new Honda Odyssey, but it's not a hybrid and the fuel economy sucks. Then there's the Chrysler pacifica hybrid, but it costs at least $10k more, and I don't know if american companies can be trusted @.@.

          Toyota Sienna seems good too, but not being able to take out the middle row of seats to make room is kind of a deal-breaker...

            Who gives a shit about fuel economy when you're already getting fricked on new car depreciation. If you wanted to save money then don't buy new. The fuel savings is nominal.

            not everyone considers a car as an investment.

            Nobody said it's an investment. But the only reason to consider fuel economy is because you want to save money. If that cost savings is a factor, why even buy new? You're too broke for gas, but not too broke to buy new? Makes no sense.

            People care about gas the same way they get tricked into loans based off of monthly payments rather than the total amount.
            It's constantly in your face were as the price you pay for your vehicle is something you'll basically see once if you don't think about it.

            For most people it'd take 5-10 years for a hybrid to make up the difference and if the hybrid system requires any significant repairs in it's lifetime, that pretty much wipes out your fuel savings.

            Yeah there's a lot of dumb shit normies believe about cars. The one that irritates me the most is
            >got rid of the car because the repair was going to be more expensive than the car is worth!
            NO
            You need to compare the cost of the repair to the cost of replacing it (factoring in how long you think the car could last if it had the repair).
            It drives me crazy how prevalent that belief is.

            Because used minivans that weren't beat to shit don't exist, unless they come from a rental agency, but those have their own problems. People who buy minivans typically buy them new and drive them either till they're actual junk or 25 years later when their kids are grown and the van is on the verge of being junk.

            My parents were super cheap with cars and they always bought new minivans because of this.

        Because NPCs fell for the "owning a practical vehicle means you're not cool" meme and bought into the shitty CUV and SUV (as a minivan replacement) meme.

        Your only option is to basically do what my parents did in '08 and buy an actual fleet vehicle model.

        Also do the math on a hybrid, because there's a good chance it'll take forever to pay for the difference in intial price and when you factor in the additional complexity of a hybrid system, it probably won't be worth it.

        Sort of, but minivans are certainly better if you have a large enough family or need the additional cargo space.

    dad with 4 kids here, we just got a minivan a few months back after driving a bunch of them. there's really only 2 options: a used chrysler voyager/pacifica, or a new toyota sienna.
    we got the new sienna, and couldn't be happier.

      did you consider the odyssey and find it lacking?
      Also, should I have kids? My parents really want em, but I actually have a life and hobbies, and have no idea how I could possibly raise a proper child these days without them becoming frickups. For the record, I'm the only one among my siblings who went to a good school and got a good job. The other siblings are...worse than vermin. If they worked at McDonald's, I'd have respect for them. But they are complete frickups who violently disrespect their parents while suckling on their wallets, all the while not even trying to work a day in their lives. My solution would be to beat them within an inch of their life and leave them on the street, but my parents will just coddle them to death. I don't know man... I don't trust fate enough to have a kid. School and college and a job are within my control. But a kid...they can and will turn out to be a fricking piece of shit, and there's barely anything I can do about it ;-;.

        yeah. for the exact same price, the sienna had better trim, better fit and finish, and better overall driving experience.
        >Also, should I have kids?
        absolutely. it's the most satisfying, rewarding and challenging thing i have ever done. feels goodman.

          fwiw, the sienna seems like a no-go for me because of the non-removable middle-row seats. Having all that room really feels good for when you need it (e.g. moving your kids' shit to their college dorm)
          >absolutely
          senpai...;-; <3. Do you have experience raising gen z kids? In my day, we watched johnny bravo and bugs bunny. Nowadays, cartoons don't exist, and all the kids are probably getting brainrot from tiktok and streamers and influencers and who knows what else. But I'm too much of a free spirit to beat my child and tell them to stop consuming gay shit that'll ruin them for life and leave them an empty husk in their adult life. Tell me I'm not crazy, senpai ;-;. Or am I over-reacting? ;-;

            Timbren bump stops with a walled cargo carrier will alleviate that worry.

    exclude korea based on their history of engine compartment fires and now seat fires.
    honda is ok
    toyota is ok, and efficient because it's all hybrid
    chrysler makes a not-very-efficient, all wheel drive minivan where the seats fold into the floor instead of having to lift out
    I'd get the chrysler because the rentastar is reasonably reliable and the seats are easier to move around, and gas is cheap where I live

    You named it. Toyota Sienna. Kia is going to introduce the Carnival as a hybrid but the Sienna is going to be the obvious pick regardless.

    Good luck finding one, everyone that wants a minivan wants one, as does every corporation that wants a company beater car. Having a full-sized SUV as a Prius is unusually popular.
