Any other moms that refuse to drive a mini van?

I am getting ready to be 32 and have a 3 year old daughter so i don't really see the need for a mini van but I just don't think i could do it even if I had 5 kids. i told my hubby that i would drive the biggest SUV made before i drove a mini van! Anybody else like this?

  • I love my minivan. I am 25, but it is the most practical vehicle to drive. I am not ashamed, I am proud of the family I have. I don't define myself by a vehicle. JMO

  • nope-while I don't like my Kia bc of all the problems we've had with it, it has saved my back!! I really do like having a mini van!

  • yes, I will never drive a minivan.
    Actually I dont like "mom cars" I had an SUV, and I didnt like it either, I am getting an Infiniti G35 soon (the 2 door) so I wont even have a mom car.
    but I only have 1 daughter so its no big deal for me. lol

  • I'm 31, have 3 kids and love my minivan. I can carry 6 passengers and the kids bikes or almost anything else I feel like transporting. It's big and comfy and not a gas hog.
    But to each their own!

  • So you think a minivan will hurt your looks??? to me that sound like your high classer then us moms that have a mini van.
    I'm proud to have a van and its so much easier to get things in then a 2 door car and if i want to go camping i can just use my van instead of a tent

  • I used to think like you until the day I drove my friend's minivan and it was so convenient and it made my life so much easier. I am 36 years old with a 3 y/o son. I can't wait until we can buy our minivan, I became a minivan believer! Take a good one for a test drive, it may change your mind.

  • I refuse too! Gimme an SUV before I drive a mini van!....I always laugh because my SIL found out she was prego with her 2nd and ran out to buy a mini van before the "stick" was even dry! NOW she gave it up and drives a SUV because she realized she didn't need a mini van with just 2 small kids.

  • Hell no I can't stand a minivan it just isnt me. I have a Jeep and its very spacious. My sister drives a minivan and I pick at her all the time. Just something about a minivan doesn't sit right with me.

  • Thats how I felt bebita. We had to take my pontiac in for service and they gave us a van. At first, I was made....then I was sooo happy-all the room, no bending to get in and out of the back seat.

    I wanted one-When my gas pedal got stuck after servicing the breaks they took the car back and gave us something of our choice-a van!

  • How are mini vans embarassing? Isn't that a little immature. I mean, come on, we are talking about vehicles. They don't define who we are. At least, I am not that superficial.
