 2012 Nissan Quest LE: Perfect Vehicle for My Family

The above picture was taken by my wife (so blame her for the blur) just after my daughter blurted out, "This is the perfect vehicle for our family! I love it so much more than our CR-V!"

I do too because of the extra room and amenities, and even though I've admittedly (and foolishly) avoided the minivan stigma.

Now, with a teenager and a 10-year-old, I'm probably on the far end of the minivan demographic and doubt there's one in my future. But you never know. And the Quest and my daughter's assessment make a solid case for changing my mind.

For the record, the kids aren't just giddy from riding in the Quest. They were watching a DVD of Mel Brooks' Robin Hood: Men in Tights on the vehicle's 11-inch rear screen. This after I picked up a copy of Young Frankenstein at the supermarket for $4.99. I had to tell them to keep it down because they were laughing so loudly.
