I just want to go on record stating that I love driving a minivan. Anyone that down plays it has no ideas the immense joy it brings to a family guy like me.
It completely satisfies the “cockpit” envy many drivers have, it feels more like I am driving a ship than any other automobile I have ever owned.
I drive slower (because I want to enjoy every minute of it)
I have room for anything I want including eleven eight foot 2×6’s
I listen to music all the time. (flawless bluetooth integration)
Kids love it. (of course they do)
So far, there is no down side.
