How do you decide whether or not to drive a minivan?
We are in the market for a new car. we have a small SUV but finding that with out two boys, and our dog (who is enormous) there just isn’t enough room for all of us to go anywhere together. Even with roof racks full we still can’t take everything for a camping trip. I find it surprising since I felt that our Nissan Rogue was so big when we bought it. But, no, it seems with kids it is true, the minivan may be the best option.
I swore I wouldn’t get one.
It’s not that I have a problem with them per se. And it definitely isn’t an issue of me thinking I am too cool for a minivan (I wish track pants were socially acceptable to be worn in public) it just isn’t me.
Maybe it should be.
So now, we are thinking about all the options. Leather seats? Mounted DVD players? Roof racks? Trailer hitch? Cargo mats? Satellite radio?
I certainly remember when I was just excited that my car had a CD player!
