Can’t believe we’re talking about possibly buying a minivan. I know many of you reading this own them. I just always thought of minivans as a rite of passage into being an adult. Yes, by age, I am an adult but try not to be one.

We have two five-passenger cars, but it would be very nice to have a six or seven passenger vehicle. For looks, I would prefer an SUV, but vans do much better on gas. Both cars are paid for and we’re thinking next spring with the income tax refund of maybe trading in the Malibu for a minivan. Crazy to think here I am at this point in my life.

Do you have any suggestions or makes and models? Love to hear from you.
