 OK so I have a Chevy Trailblazer and while its been in the shop being repaired Ive been driving a Quest. I said I would never be a mini van kinda person but after driving it I really like it. Do any of you have one? Or even a van? What do you love or hate about them? Were going to find out if we can maybe get it and trade in my Trailblazer but Im scared Im not making the right decision.

My brother and his wife have a 2007 Quest...they like it, but it's already needed a bunch of work done.

My parents have a 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan....it's ok, it feels smaller on the inside than mine does.

I have a 2005 Honda Odyssey....I love it, and I'd only trade it for a newer one..lol.

Theirs, the driver side sliding door isn't electric, I don't know about hatch.

my dad's, all 3 are electric.

Mine, just the doors are, but the hatch is easy to close, my 6 year old can do it...lol.

i have an '08 quest and i LOVE it.  the controls on the dash (radio, air conditioning, etc....) is situated kind of tilted and it makes it easier to reach.  i haven't had any problems with it until very recently.  one of the sliding doors is really hard to close now.  we're talking about buying a new car for me and i'm looking at new quests. the new body style is really cute.

I want a Toyota Sienna some kind of bad.  My in-laws have one and I love it!

My sitter had a Dodge Caravan and 2 Town and Country vans before she got her Sienna.  It's an 04, they got in '06, have had no problems except routine maintenance.  The same cannot be said for the first 3.
