Not to get 5 people around and one on the way. I'm actually really happy with the purchase, well in the sense the comfort and smooth ride is really nice here in PR. Don't forget it is over 80 degrees every day here so you need good A/C systems and rear vents are a must, well at least for us.

I think it takes a real man to drive a mini van....LOL. My wife and I support her parents, they are ill more so the father, so I need something that is really comfortable so he can relax with heart and diabetes problems.

Hmmm.

I could do it, but you'd have to supply the "raw" materials!

Lets see, about 20 different colors of air brush enamel, a gallon of clear, a BUNCH of beer, and oh yeah, the naked lady.

And I'm PICKY about what naked ladies I hang out with!

Isold car before, the mini van is the easiest vehicle for anyone to get in and out of one. I have had 2 Expeditions and they have great dual a/c, but no very easy to climb into the back seats. I understand... but are you sure? JK

I heard you have to hand over your balls when you buy a mini-van.:hihi:
Mini-vans are the root of all evil and should be bannished to a land far away for nobody but other mini-van drivers to see. Most people that drive them are too fat and lazy to be able to manage their kids with a regular vehicle. Exercise, eat healthy, lose your fat ass and get rid of the mini-van. The world would be a much nicer place without the mini-van.
P.S. If you drive a mini-van and your ass is not fat. Just wait, it's coming.
