Re: your favorite car for many kids?
We have a '10 Ody and an '09 Pilot- both have pros and cons. Both seat 8- however I can't comfortably sit in between the carseats in the 2nd row of my Ody- my 12 year old son can though. I can sit in the 2nd row of the Pilot but my 12 year old says the middle of the 3rd row seat is not comfortable. There seems to be larger more comfortable seating in the Pilot but that sacrifices cargo room- my Ody has tons of cargo room!
Also if roads are bad we drive the Pilot- it has AWD.
For our family vehicle my van fits the bill but my husband didn't want to drive a mini-van so he got a Pilot. Ody is much more family friendly with features you will love with small children.
ETA: We had a freestyle before the Pilot and it also served our purposes well- we could fit all 5 kids in it but the Pilot is much more roomy.
