Why choose a Minivan? Some call it the ultimate Mom-Car and I know a lot of people who would rather have any type of car if given the option of a minivan. But leaving all those aside, some people will want to have one. Why do you think so? What are some of the reasons why you should have a minivan?
Automatic Sliding doors
In those narrow parking spaces at the shopping center, sliding doors will be very helpful. For one, you won’t have to stand over your kids making sure they don’t hit the car parked next to yours when they throw the door open. It’s also easier to just push the sliding doors towards one side when, for example, you are carrying grocery bags. You can also set child locks on these automatic sliding doors which is also a cool feature.
Most minivans have pockets and spaces for everything you need. Depending on the manufacturer and the make, minivans would usually have glove compartments, center console, plastic pockets in doors and under the wheel. Minivans also have a lot of cupholders which you will really need a lot of, for your coffee, your child’s bottled drinks, and your toddler’s sippy cup.
Most minivans will give you the option of getting “captain’s chairs” for the second row seat. This is definitely a must have especially if you have kids who have very narrow age gaps. These kids, while in the car, will tend to bug each other out which will eventually get on your nerves. Having captain’s chairs will somehow create a separation zone between them.
You Won’t Have to Keep it Forever
We all know how it goes. You start having kids, the kids eventually grow up, and sooner or later, they are gonna leave the nest. They also get cars of their own when they move out. That being said, you don’t have to keep the minivan forever. You can probably trade it in for that sports car of your dreams.
Minivans Doesn’t Mean That You’re Un-cool
Having a minivan means that you are somehow facing the responsibility of parenthood. Although this is true, minivans don’t have to suck. Take a look around and go window shopping from car dealers to car dealers. There’s a classy minivan out there just for you. After all, you’re a parent and that doesn’t mean you’ve ran out of style.
