Do you have a minivan?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I'm cringing at the thought, but I think we need one. Ugh, so uncool!!! Anyway, we have 5 kids, and two adults in our family. We need something that seats 7-8 people, 4 in car seats and maybe a 5th soon.



What do you have? Do you love it? Hate it?

Yep. I drive a Dodge grand caravan and I love it!! I'm 29, married with 3 kids. I don't care if I'm cool anymore. It seats 7 people comfortably and still plenty of storage room.

Dodge caravan. Love it to death. Three in car seats, plus me'n dh. The side doors (two) open remotely, and we recently discovered a drawer under the passenger side seat, and it has a lock on it. The middle seats are captains chairs, and they are stow and go. The back seat holds three, and is also a stow and go. We got an '07, but there was only one previous owner and took good care of it, so it's in pristine condition.

I said that too, but I don't know what else to do! We have three kids, then unexpectedly took our nieces in and their mom may be pregnant again. If that's the case, we'll likely end up with that baby too. Crazy life!

It got stuck in the snow lol. Mine is an '07, and I'm not a fan of the way the controls are set up.
We're looking into Honda Pilots.


Quoting Anonymous:

What do you hate about it? They are so expensive, you'd think they'd be awesome!



Quoting UxorQuodMatris.:

I have a Honda Odyssey. I hate it, we need a 4 wheel drive.

No mini van for us!

We have a GMC Envoy XL. That bitch is huge! I named her Big Bertha.

Yes, but only because the price was right. Paid $600 for it four years ago. Only have one kid, so the rest is just empty space...

Those are sweet looking, but probably overkill for us. We don't get snow here or tow boats or anything. I just need to get to the dang store without drama and get kids to school.

Quoting MissMysteriouss:

No and I never will.

I have 6 kids.

We have a Ford Excursion Limited. It seats 8 comfortably, with tons of storage behind the 3rd row. We get a lot of snow, so 4x4 is a must for me. It is a beast, but I love it.
