Hmmmmm... not an awesome idea, if you ask me.

The new 2015 Toyota Sienna minivan will have an option called Driver Easy Speak.  It's a microphone in the driver's seat that amplifies your voice through the speakers in the backseat.  Is this only to make it easier to yell at your kids?

If you remember, last year Honda put an optional vacuum cleaner in their Odyssey minivan!

I don't like either idea!  I just want to drive.  Please.

Minivan sales peaked in 2000, at 1.37 million.

Last year, it was about one-third of that, at 519,000.

Maybe try making them cooler?  Just an idea.

Or, at the very least, give me one of those privacy glass walls that slides up when I'm fed up!
