    I have just brought up the list of cars available to me. I say cars they're more like small tanks compared to what I drive.

    Anyway, I know very little about cars (shameful given my dad was a mechanic), and need some guidance.

    Given what's available in other catagories of car it seems I've limited myself somewhat.

    This is the list:

    2014 CHRYSLER TC
    2014 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN
    2014 KIA SEDONA
    2015 KIA SEDONA - Redesign
    2014 NISSAN QUEST
    2014 TOYOTA SIENNA
    Yup, all mini vans. For four of us. I think we could have gotten away with a smaller/cheaper car.


    Anyway, assuming I have the option of all the above, which car will be the most comfortable?

    Well, I've had a Chrysler Town and Country mini van as a rental. It was very nice. Very comfortable. (I'm pretty sure you don't mean the failed Chrysler TC by Maserati, right? ). :D

    Kia Sedona is the sister vehicle to the one I currently drive, I think. I drive a Hyundai Tucson and it's quite comfortable and decent on mileage.

    Not sure about the others. The Nissan and the Toyota are biiiiiig (but then so is the Chrysler). I try to avoid Dodges, so have no experience with the one you list. :D :D

    Can I ask why you avoid the Dodges?

    The list is from Alamo's website as what is currently available. However, the list is due to change with updated 2015 models but not sure if that'll be before or after our trip.

    Because there is a huge divide in we old folk who used to drive too fast when cars were cars, and drivers new how to drive them. :D Dodge was Mopar. Me? Big Block Chevys. So, you see? Nothing more than unfounded prejudice. :D :D

    The Sienna is probably the best specced, look for the SE badge on the back and it will have electric side and rear doors.

    In truth, they'll all bore you to tears within a couple of days, so i tend to go for the one with the least miles on the clock.

    Thanks for your help.

    Not much choice in that list. I was worried we wouldn't fit four cases in anything else.

    Never mind what's done is done.

    I'm going to have to go back to florida so I can hire a mustang ;)
