Ok guys, so it is time for an update in vehicles. We have two children and want another by next year. Right now all we have is a 4door lariat f150. We were looking at expeditions, but with the gas prices sooo high that isnt really a smart option. So, my husband suggests a minivan. I am not sure if I am ready for that! I love the ammenities that come with them dvd, third row seat etc, but a minivan? I'm only 23 years old. What made you guys decide on vans and what are some good suggestions? I am looking at 2007's. Up for suggestions...help!

I have a 2001 ford windstar. I love it. Also, when we do go to buy a new car I will be getting another minivan. I love them! I especially love the newer ones that have the back window that actually rolls down...those are cool. Also, anything with stow and go seats is great! I'm looking at either the Honda Odyssey or the Chrysler Town and Country.

I was looking at the town and country's and they seem really nice. I found several in our price range...but I am still shopping for the right one. Not sure if Chrysler is what I really want being I have never had a van before.

We just bought our first minivan! I am 23 as well. We used to have an SUV but with my 2 dogs and our daughter it was hard to fit all that in when we traveled. My husband refuses to buy a Chrysler and  I absolutely required the stow and go seating where both the 2nd and 3rd row seats folded flat into the floor. We found the Nissan Quest and absolutely love it! It has everything and still drives like a car since it is built on the frame of a maxima. I definitely recommend it.

I have a Dodge Caravan.  I love it.  We bought ours when I was 25.  My husband was not happy.  He thought we were too "young' to drive a mommy mobile.  He loved it as soon as he drove it.  He now wants to have one for himself for a work van.   We travel a lot.  It makes life easy on the road.  We haul our camper, our kids, our dog, and our crap comfortably.  I'm now looking at the new dodges, I love the body style.  The odyssey's are sharp looking too.
