    my wife drives a toyota sienna minivan and she loves it.

    but am just not into it. i've driven a big car before - my old 560SEL was just as long and just as wide as the toyota sienna, so it's not the size.

    i don't enjoy the way it drives. i will drive it if i have to, but i prefer to be a passenger in the middle row and let my wife drive when we take the sienna.

    i admit that it is a fun vehicle when you are going on a road trip with friends. you can all pile into one vehicle and drive together.

All the kids love my car b/c we have Spongebob on the DVD player all the time and the doors slide automatically. All the parents (including my wife) make fun of the fact that I love my minivan so much that I just got a new one. No sports cars for me...

    Otherwise, I tell every parent of driving age kids that their first car, if they can afford it, should be a Subaru of some kind... Run forever, AWD, safe, not too flashy but not too parental... Here in PA love the Outback or the Forester...

    and i actually prefer it to a regular car. i like that feeling of driving at the front edge of a slightly raised bubble....
