I never thought of myself as a mini-van kind of person. However with the birth of our third child it seemed inevitable. It fits them comfortably and allows room for more people or groceries. The space is great. My only complaints are as follows, I don't like the spaces for the seat tracks because when kneeling to buckle a seatbelt for my son they can really hurt my knees.The other problem I've had with it is electrical. Everytime I use the air conditioning the van starts to shake. The dealership has not fixed it after several trips to them.
Space for my family is the best, but extra space for a Christmas tree is priceless.
Better design of seat tracks on the floor, maybe with the stow and go type this has changed. I don't know. Better quality electrical systems would be fabulous, my friend had the same problem with hers.
