Re: Honda Odyssey vs Toyota Sienna
No vacuum, that comes on the more expensive trim packages. My LX is the base model, and already well-equipped. Electric driver's seat, bluetooth, usb input, rear camera, tinted windows (the base Sienna didn't have any of these) and a 7 speaker stereo (Sienna has 4 speakers, no sub.) The Honda is also rated about 10% better fuel economy.
There were other reasons I didn't choose the Toyota, perhaps its only advantage is that it had a slight power advantage. But the Odyssey has a pushbutton D3 gear that gives it more torque for hills and towing, and also makes it quicker off the line. So really, the power is pretty close, the final cost was pretty close, but the Honda has more features and better ease of use.
