about to buy a mini van..are these really "MOM" cars!!!!?

im 23.. have two kids of my own, step mama to one, and one of the way(: if anyone had one word to describe me it would CLEARLY be MOM!... but my husband picked out a mini van he wants to get.. its not new, and its cheaper than the SUVs that I wanted to get.. so i told him that we could go ahead and get it... I think itll be fun being so young and having a mini van full of kids, i absolutely love it... but I think SUVs are just better...

what do you think? mini van.. or SUV?

  • I prefer minivans, but my husband REFUSES to get one because of the whole "mom car" thing.

  • i have owned both a mini van and an suv, i def love the suv more, but the mini van came in way more handy with all the kids, especially if i was taking extra's with me.

  • minivans have more space and typically run cheaper, but if you are worried about how you'll look and can afford it, get the SUV. I prefer the minivan. Almost all my neighbors with 3 or more kids have them.

  • oh and if you are getting one of the suv's with the 3rd row seating, remember that with carseats in place you wont be able to fold them down so the other kids will have to crawl over.

  • I fought it tooth and nail. Then when we got one I LOVED IT and still do!!!!! I did however get the 2 seperate seats in the middle row, rather than the long bench....that way the kids can't touch one another LOL

  • Ha..I would love a minivan, but dh absolutely refuses, so I guess we're getting an SUV.

  • Mini van. I don't care if they are considered "mom" cars. I am very proud to have the title of MOM. I love my van.
