ReviewThis is the only vehicle I could find
that I can expect atleast a quarter
million miles from. It is also the
only "large" vehicle I could find that
offers 20+ MPG.
I expected a lot of "have you lost your
mind" comments, but guys offer gutteral
Tim Allen sounds and carpool moms envy
the room. Bottom line, I have my kids
in tow for the next seven years and I
will either be equipped to be an
integral part of their lives (carpool,
school trips, mission trips, sports
team trips, etc.) or I will position
myself to be a bystander. My wife is
also confident that I didn't by this
behemoth in order to "pick up chicks".
Best FeaturesWhat other 19-foot long car can you drive that lets you look down on SUV's. This thing is a kick to drive, it is comfortable and it turns on a dime. Don't dismiss this car as an alternative to oversized SUV's and pickups until you drive it.
Worst FeaturesThey could turn out a passenger van that is the same height as the cargo van, which would make this a great competitor for the minivans. My oversized (140-inch, ten-passenger) model has unbelievable power, a smaller version would be a race car.
