The Secret's Out! Minivans Rock!

So we're just going to address it upfront. We know what you're thinking! Vans, Minivans, Mom-mobiles, People Movers.. we've heard it all! For some reason, these quality vehicles have gotten a bad rap over the years for
being.. how do we put this.. a little un-cool!

And while the truth is, that these may not look like the New Mercedes Benz-E Class that you have in mind, or the all terrain Jeep Wrangler that you've been eyeing, these vans are actually petty slick, cool, fun & trendy. Yup! We said it! So, please hear us out and we'll let you decide.

For instance.. take the New 2013 Toyota Sienna. Whether its car pool or weekend trips with the guys, the Sienna seats 8 passengers with captain seating and room in the back to spare. Because, what is the point in bringing along your fellow teammates or buddies if they cant bring their stuff right? Okay, so far we've got room for the team & plenty of storage. Check!

Now add in Bluetooth, Satellite Radio, Entune-Entertainment System, Back Up Camera, USB Ports, Steering Wheel Controls, Rear Entertainment & More. Ah-ha, we see where this is going.. maybe the UN-cool factor is starting to diminish.. at least a bit right? 

Truthfully, the Toyota Sienna, is not only one of the roomiest, most technologically advanced vans on the market it is also one of the most safe vehicles you can drive. Precious cargo deserves to be safe right?! Sometimes, lets face it, with a growing family, a coupe or even a sedan may not work. If you need room & storage, a van will give you just that and more. All Wheel Drive comes standard for a smoother, consistent drive, and the Sienna is equipped with Toyota's Award Winning Star Safety System, Blind Spot Protection, advanced air bag systems and more.

As far as value goes, it doesn't get any better than this. The Sienna comes with Toyota Care, a 2- year complimentary maintenance program and a complimentary 1-year subscription to Safety Connect, a new 24/7 assistance program that offers roadside protection, theft prevention and more.

Interested in letting us brag about all of the awards that the Toyota Sienna has won? See the trophy case HERE!


The New 2013 Honda Odyssey is in an award winning class of it own. With seating for eight, this van is sets the industry standard for third row comfortable seating. Captains seating, cushioned arm rests, easy in and out passenger entry, this van has got it all. Seating can be easily folded down, removed, tucked away, to fit less people if you want and more flat screen TV! (Just saying')

Oooo ooo this is the fun part! Guess what? Guess What?? The Honda Odyssey is also known for its extremely well equipped interior cabin with features! Push button start, 8-inch display, rear camera, cool box for chilled beverages, USB Interface, Bluetooth, Navigation, Blind Spot Detection and drumroll please.... the first ever HondaVac. Yes, a built in vacuum that will easily reach the front for a total care cleanup.

As far as safety goes, Honda is committed to the safety of not only passengers and drivers, but also for other vehicle occupants and pedestrians. With advanced features like daytime running lights, traction control, lane departure warning, SMARTvent front airbags, tire pressure monitoring and more, this Honda van is always a popular favorite!

So what do you think? Have we convinced you even a little that minivans CAN and DO rock? Vans are not only safe, roomy, affordable and fuel-efficient, but they have some of the most advanced technology features. Trust us, once you drive one and see how great they are, you will never want to give up the room. Most young families like the look of small SUV's, but realize that they do not have the room that they need. With busy schedules, the top priority for most families is convenience. Minivans provide just that. Drop us a line and let us know what you think. We want to know!
