    DefaultLabrador vehicle

    Looking for a new vehicle that will comfortably fit 3booster Seats, and 1-2 crates. I currently have the odyssey, though a great fit, it is lousy in the winter.

    What are you and your labs riding in? My dogs need to be in crates!

    A Honda Pilot will do the job. They are NOT inexpensive!

    I went w/ the AWD Sienna and so far, so good. I do orchard work in addition to going to hunt tests that can be in very muddy locations.

    I have a steep, curvy driveway, just a lick of snow, and the odyssey loses its mind. I bald my tiers every year. Otherwise great vehicle.

    We have a new Dodge Journey R/T with AWD - but I would think the vans have more space

    You have a full crew to haul, sounds like you need something with AWD or 4WD on command.
    I second the Honda Pilot in a AWD.
    We have a 2009 Suburban LTZ with the 4WD option. It's big and can haul just about anything, gas mileage isn't that great but do feel safe in it.

    The problem w/ the Odysseys is that it's only FWD. I've seen/heard of many getting stuck at muddy hunt tests too. The only AWD van anymore is the Toyota Sienna. More $, but I think worth it in the end to have the AWD and it's a very nice driving vehicle. Again, I have to do some orchard visits at times too for my work, and when they are irrigating, it's SLICK. And the orchards out here are huge, on some not so wonderful terrain. My biggest complaint is it doesn't have as much clearance underneath for rutty roads, but so far, I've not had trouble.

    Your price range will be a huge factor. Must it be brand new or will a used vehicle be an option?

    If you opt to go with a Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep vehicle let me know. I can get you 1% below invoice on any of them brand new plus all rebates and zero haggle. Just a price 1% below invoice.

    Love my Honda Element. Honda Pilot is nice. But definitely price is a huge factor. Always can go used? Or look in to fan by fanboys offer. Just watch recalls though, but I think fan of fanboys would clue you in on that too.
