  • I drive a '97 Chevrolet mini van. It's an older car but is great for my family. It holds eight passengers.
    I do notice know they have some vehicles looking like a cross between an suv and mini van now.

  • I LOVE my Honda Odyssey. Plenty of room, drives and handles well, and has the remote sliding doors that I love. The new 2011 Odysseys just came out and I really hate the look of the exterior. I was planning to upgrade next year, but I am going to wait it out until the next model change.

  • I had a 2000 Toyota Sienna for 10 years. I loved that van so much that I now own a 2011 Toyota Sienna. It has a lot of room (I have a 12 yr old who is my height, plus 2 others, all of whom are not getting smaller,) bluetooth audio and phone, and 2 power doors plus the hatch. It's already made a 3500 mile road trip with no problems.

    Depending on how many kids you have/plan on having I would also look at the Toyota Highlander and Honda Pilot. I've heard great things about both cars from friends with 2 kids.

  • Depends on the size of the family. If you have only two kids a regular car is fine. But if you have 3 or more a mini van is the best fo a large family.

  • We have one child and we have a minivan. It is nice to have the extra room. When we go shopping or trips. Plus we are going to TTC next year, so we will need more room. When I went to buy my minivan I was lookng for a car/suv. My parents talked me into the minivan and I am so glad they did. I have a 05 saturn relay. I bought 3 yrs old with 30,000 miles on it. It was a great deal and stil covered under warranty and elected for extra warranty. I never was the minivan type, but it is nice. Plus, we have friends, and if we want to go shopping there is plenty of room in the minivan, just move the car seat or not, and youre good to go.
