Almost totally agree. One thing about leather seats, though, is that they are very friendly to young children. If you don't intend to outlaw food, snacks, candy & drink from the van (or Family Utility Vehicle as we sometimes call it), leather seats will save much cleaning effort and prevent lingering odors and clinging foodstuffs. Also, for our 2006 Honda Odyssey, we went with the Honda crossbars and later got a nice Thule carrier that locks on very well.
