The minivan debate..

Written on July 6, 2005 by Kevin.

One thing that seems to come with starting a family are the thoughts of purchasing a minivan. It seems that many people buy one even though they only have a single child. Is this really necessary? From all reports that I can see, minivans never seem to go over 45mph. They are always extremely slow to respond to any road incidents and general are a pain to be stuck behind. I hope the day never comes that I have to go minivan shopping. I hope that my large sedan will keep the (soon to be) three of us with plenty of space. I just cant imagine having to face myself while I make car payments on a minivan for the following 3 years. Lets hope my wife's desire for a minivan doesn't outlast my dislike for them.


I had a minivan for years and was able to dump it. I bought a Toyota Highlander, & seater. I love it. The very back seat folds down for storage or fits 2 small kids.
