Car spin-off, sort of

I am beginning to look for a bigger car than what I have and I'm opening my mind up to the idea of a mini van, but I'm still stuck on SUVs.

Mamas who drive mini vans what van do you have? What do you like and not like about it?

Mamas who drive "mid size" (not huge) SUVs, what do you have? What do you like and not like about it?

I like Explorers, my mom & step dad each had one for a few years before the transmissions were going to go out so they got different cars. I really like them when the body style changed around, 2004? 

Although I know whatever vehicle I'll be getting I'll have to make a sacrifice on gas, no van or SUV will get as good of gas mileage as my car does unless I were to get a new one...  

BTW I've kept the Explorers in my mind because of knowing that *you have fit three car seats into the backseat lol.

I also really like the Trail Blazers, my grandma has rented one for works trips, and I've ridden in a couple of different TBs... They are nice.

We have an 08 Hyundai Entourage mini van. LOVE IT! We have a 15 it old and 2 in carseats so my little SUV wasn't gonna work.
I love that the back has vents and controls for the a/c. We have plenty of room.
We didn't upgrade and get the power doors or the dvd player. Wish we had, but that was our stupid choice. :)

I LOVE mini vans! Never owned one but my aunt has a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan and I am in love with it, wish I could have one!

I owned an Explorer too. LOVED it. I didn't care even much about the gas but there as alot wrong with it so I got a car instead. I love bigger vehicles!
