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?

Nice, I would worry about our parking garage situation with one of those, lol. They are pretty though!

Quoting nataliesmom2012:

No mini van for us!

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

I feel like I got surprised with multiples, lol. We just had our sedan and it was fine. Then boom,two more kids overnight!

Quoting harehelper:

If you got surprised with multiples, you might wind up breaking down and getting one LOL. A third row SUV doesn't have nearly the space of even a smaller minivan.

Quoting spastic_poodle:

hell. no. if I needed more seating I'd get an suv with third row. I will NEVER own a van. ick.

We have a dodge caravan. We always buy minivans. They're as easy to drive as a car & have plenty of room. I love them.

It holds 8 people with room for storage. It's big and it's a gas guzzler at 12mpg but it works for us.

Oh no. I refuse. But if you have a very large family ( More the 3 kids) I would suggest it.

We have one... it has six seats in the rear, not just five.

We have a Ford Escape. I will never own a minivan. We are considering a bigger SUV with #3 on the way as it would.be a real tight fit for ODD in between two car seats but she has her own car and rarely goes anywhere with us anyways.
