Hah! You're in the same boat I was when looking for a <gag> minivan for my wife. After a LOT of research, it seemed like the Odyssey would be the one to buy, but one with 20,000 miles was only a few thousand less than a new one, and the new ones were $30,000.00!

to respond. these aren't my comments, the pros and cons are edmund's pros and cons, and "edmunds" is what their overall opinion is.
the reason i'm looking at these cars is that I'm looking to spend ~$11K-$14K on a relatively new, low mileage (20K or less) midsize or larger sedan and these are the only ones that edmunds brought back in that category.
Last year we paid $12,000 out the door for '99 Grand Marquis LS w/30K. Except for a brake squeal, it's been freakin' flawless. Only thing I don't like, is the stiff suspension and it's smallish interior. That's a midsize in my book, but no import and/or econobox has anything on this car at that price!
