I Miss My Minivan So Much [AUDIO]

Chrysler CEO Visits Windsor Assembly PlantEveryone used to pick on me for having one.  The trusty Dodge Caravan.  The Lee Iacocca mobile as they used to call it.  After having 3 of them in my life, I finally unloaded the last one  a few years ago for a more “stylish” SUV.  What an idiot! Just like the Governator said – “They’re Baaack“.  Or at least the auto makers are trying with a vengence.  There’s fierce competition amongst the major brands to get market share back for these handy vehicles.  According to USA  , they had  a shoot-out of sorts:

To evaluate the high-end, high-profit vans that make the small market worthwhile, USA TODAY, and the MotorWeek TV show convened the Ultimate Minivan Shootout, a comparison test among well-equipped vans priced from about $34,000 to $43,000, without shipping charges.

Although pricy, they picked the Honda Odyssey as the best.  You can read the report above if you are in the market.

Sorry.  I wouldn’t pay $40,000 – no way, Jose!   I liked my old one.  It was a “dealer car”.  We got it for $16,000.  Boy, those were the days.  I remember the day I got rid of it like it was yesterday!
