When I had a mini van , I owned 2 different Aerostars one was a 4.0L and the other a 3.0L . I absolutely loath front wheel drive anything. Since no one makes a rear drive mini van anymore , AWD is the way to go imho. Though they ruin that too with all this nanny add on traction control etc. Bah driving has had the fun taken out of it because so few people really know how to handle a car. Jay leno asked his niece why she texted while driving and she said because driving is boring. These people should not get their license . smile

I bought a Chevy Uplander the last year they offered them(2009), got a great deal and now I get a letter or call from the dealership every two to three months asking with such low mileage on ours(48,000 Km), because of the demand for low mileage minivans come in, get top dollar and trade it in on something newer. I know much of this is just salesmanship and promotion, but, even if it is partially true,one wonders why GM stopped making them in the first place?

I asked my sales rep why and even with over 25 years in the business, he just shrugs his shoulders. For the most part SUVs are highly overrated, over priced and certainly don't have the space of a minivan. No wonder these clowns had to go to the taxpayer for a bailout.

OK....I have come out the other side. Number 1 is married and Number 2 I just saw off to Richmond for a fairly prestigious Internship. Back in the day, my wife and I decided we did not want to concede to the minivan craze and.....I am glad that we did not. I still have my '98 Expedition and have never regretted it. I did, however, go to the opposite end of the pendulum and purchase an Escape this past summer. 8 cylinders down to 4 is much better on the wallet. Don't know if you guys can get "John Boy & Billy" on radio but this thread certainly sounds like an episode of "Married Man".....Just Sayin'

She's got a valid point--she's going to be driving it a lot more than me, and I'd pretty much decided on something before we even test drove or looked at much.

In any case, we'll be looking at a Flex pretty closely; what with all the discounts getting thrown at it these days, it's pretty appealing. Not to mention the fact it's smaller than a minivan with better visibility, as far as I can tell.

I know that the Caravan feels too big for both of us; we had a Town and Country rental that just felt enormous, and those are pretty much the same car with different interior and grill. And I'm afraid a Suburban or Expedition is pretty much out of the question!

Adding the Nissan Quest to the list. It's waaaaaaay underappreciated and hence waaaaaaaay under MSRP.

That is the show that I am talking about. I have not listened in several years but when I was, my favorites were the Married Man episodes and "The Reverend Billy Ray Collins".

I don't think that the visibility of the Flex is better than a minivan; it seems lower to me, which mattered for me. YMMV

Well, we test drove the Flex and the Quest today. We liked both better than the (slightly older) Siennas and Odysseys we drove, and much better than the Highlander and the Pilot.

We're leaning heavily towards the Flex; it feels nice to drive, the interior is nice, and it's got a good base package (including heated, powered seats in cloth upholstery--shocker!)

Only trouble now will be finding one with the right options and the right color on the lot--since these things are not exactly popular, half of the bargaining power we've got is taking one of them off the dealer's hands. Sadly, there seem to be even fewer blue ones out there, and that's the color we both really like.
