After several months of friends and relatives nagging and asking me when I was going to Road Test this minivan or that, I resigned myself to the fact that people really want to know these things! My response to their requests was always the same – there wasn’t a chance I would ever test a minivan! As the story goes, my wife came up with the brilliant idea to hold a Mini Van Showdown where we would test and compare two minivans head to head along with the help of a few nagging, minivan-driving friends and relatives. Hand on heart – I wasn’t drinking at the time, but I agreed right away before thinking about what I’d agreed to. Short story, long – here we are.
