A minivan can provide your family with safe, practical transportation and generous space for passengers and cargo. Three-row crossovers do their best impression of a minivan, but they can’t match the family-friendliness of a minivan, which comes from its sliding doors and third-row seating you can actually use.
Here are six good used minivans you can find on Autotrader for less than $10,000.
2011-2018 Dodge Grand Caravan
The Dodge Grand Caravan is one of the oldest names in minivans, and it’s still a respectable value choice in the segment. You might be surprised at how new a Dodge minivan you can get for less than $10,000. The Grand Caravan is one of the most affordably priced minivans when new, and depreciation makes it even more affordable on the used market. The Grand Caravan got an updated aesthetic inside and out and a more powerful standard V6 engine in 2011, so that’s a good model year to begin your search. The Grand Caravan offers available Stow ‘n Go seating, with second- and third-row seats that fold completely flat into the floor. Find a Dodge Grand Caravan for sale
2005-2010 Honda Odyssey
The third-generation Honda Odyssey is in a sweet spot of value right now. It’s new enough to still feel modern, but it’s depreciated enough to be very affordable. The Odyssey has always been a class leader in minivans for its safety and reliability and for the surprising level of refinement in its range-topping Touring trim. The third-generation Odyssey drives like a smaller vehicle, with sedanlike handling and a powerful standard V6 engine. The Odyssey got a face lift for 2008 that gave it revised styling and more standard technology, including Bluetooth connectivity. Find a Honda Odyssey for sale
2009-2014 Kia Sedona
The Kia Sedona is often overlooked in favor of its tough Japanese competitors, but it deserves a look from families looking for a bargain-priced family hauler. It may not have the same level of interior quality as its rivals, but the Sedona gets excellent safety scores, and it’s loaded with standard features. Satellite radio and a USB port became standard on every trim in 2009, and satellite navigation became optional on the top EX trim in the same year. In 2011, the Sedona got a facelift that brought with it standard Bluetooth and a new standard V6 engine that was more powerful and more efficient than the V6 engines of previous generations.

The quirky Mazda5 is something a little different. It’s smaller than your average minivan, but it still has three-row seating for up to six people. Its smaller size means that it has more agile handling and that it’s better on gas than most of its bigger competitors. The Mazda5’s styling is much more interesting than the typical family vehicle’s, too, and it won’t be accused of looking boring. There aren’t a whole lot of these for sale on Autotrader, but if there’s one for sale near you and you don’t need the space of a full-size minivan, this Mazda is worth a test drive.

2004-2009 Nissan Quest
The Nissan Quest doesn’t blend in with the minivan crowd. Its unique exterior design sets it apart from its more mainstream competitors, and the interesting design continues in the interior. Under the hood is a strong V6 engine that gives the Quest a surprising fun-to-drive factor. It has an interesting available SkyView roof, a unique configuration of four sunroofs. The Quest has a flexible interior, with a fold-flat third row, like most minivans, and second-row seats that fold almost completely flat. Bring something a little different to the school pickup line with a Nissan Quest. Find a Nissan Quest for sale
2004-2010 Toyota Sienna
Comfort, power and interior space come together in one family-friendly package in the Toyota Sienna. The Sienna delivers the safety and reliability you’d expect from a Toyota, making it a minivan you can trust. The base V6 engine is powerful, and the interior space is versatile, with tons of room for passengers and cargo. This is the only minivan on this list with available all-wheel drive, which is a great feature for families in snowy climates — it provides an extra layer of confidence and safety when roads get nasty. The Sienna is simply one of the best values in used family vehicles. Find a Toyota Sienna for sale
