Even though the car had good reviews, I didn't want to drive it because, well, it's a minivan. So glad I saw it in person. It's so much cuter than a big ol' behemoth "mini" van. It's perfect. I'm hauling kids to college in 2 short years and I wanted something small enough to park and maneuver, but with room for "stuff." I knew sliders were great for little kids, but it didn't occur to me until I took my mom to church how nice that access is for an elderly person, too. My in town mileage has been around 24.5 mpg. The "auto" climate control is taking some getting used to.
