I swore to myself that i would NEVER drive a minivan....BUT....I think we are going this weekend to seriously look at one. OH MAN! I can't believe it. With the economy the way it is...the price is right. Everyone is saying that you can't beat the convenience and space of a minivan. I guess we'll see.

Funny I always said the same thing but honestly we have a Toyota Sienna and I love it. It has the auto sliding doors in the back and it's really roomy.

We were paying up to $80 to fill it last summer but now with cheaper gas it's about $50. My only real complaint is it pretty big to park in some of those really small parking spots.

Good Luck this weekend...Hope you find one you like !

I know what you mean! We thought about an SUV but that would be too difficult with car seats. So we got a Nissan Quest last summer before X and C showed up. They are spacious for kids!

Dh and I always said the same thing, but we got a Honda Odyssey this past summer and LOVE it. It is so roomy. The power sliding doors are a must, I have the doors opened and the kids can climb right in while I am getting the baby in or putting groceries in the back.
