New Car!

I just bought a new 2003 Honda Odyssey minivan last night.

I loved my 1999 Subaru Outback wagon, but it wasn't really big enough for long trips with the whole family. Driving around Boston on Sunday with Kathy, David and Thelma in the back seat really convinced me that I needed a bigger car.

When I first started looking at minivans I was resigned to having lower gas mileage. I was surprised to see that, at least according to the window stickers, the Odyssey gets better highway mileage (25mpg) than my Outback (24mpg). I keep track of mileage and I'm intersted to see how it matches up with my driving style.

I'm considering a road trip on Sunday. Anyone have suggestions?

P.S. I am very satisfied with the service at Boch Honda so far.
