  • I have a singleton, but I he's in Little League, and Scouts. We are forever carpooling to camp and games, and I have a full-size truck. It would be nice to be able to take more than 2 kids around if I had to.

  • No because of gas mileage and I really hate driving large vehicles. My best friend just did though, she has neices and nephews that she takes places too. She complains about the gas, but loves that everyone isn't cramped up.

  • I think some people just like and prefer a minivan and don't care about the extra cost. If you love a car, you are usually willing to pay a little more to drive it around :) We are working on baby #3 and I really, really, don't want a minivan ;)

  • Yes, its great for taking little friends here & there. I have three kids but each one could bring a friend.
    I still drive one & they're older but hoping to get something smaller, soon. As my oldest one get her licence in a few months.

  • I am thinking bout one.I have 2 kids but I wanted one even when I had one. Some of those minivans are pretty cool now. I just borrowed my grandmothers for a road trip and now I want one. (seat warmers, pop out t.v., and spacious.

  • Not at all. We have one and a small 4 door. We'd like a slightly larger vehicle for longer trips for comfort but we are looking closely at gas consumption and emissions before we make any decision about that.

  • I wanted a minivan from the time I was pregnant with my first. I didn't get one until after I had my second, but if I could have afforded it three years earlier when I only had one, I would have gotten one. I love my minivan!
