Research Buying a Minivan – Are You Ready To Switch?
Are You Ready for a Flat Tire?
All drivers are at risk of getting a flat tire, but many new-car buyers might be surprised to find their new vehicle doesn't come with a spare. About 28 percent of 2017 model-year vehicles did no t come with a spare tire, based on a new study by AAA. That figure is actually down from 36 percent in 2015, in part due to increased sales of SUVs, which do have spares.AAA reports that it aided more than 450,000 members last year who were without a spare tire.
Let’s face it – Minivans just don’t have the cool factor. If one was sitting beside an SUV or sports coupe it would be skipped over almost every time.
While they might be boring and not much fun to look at, they are absolutely unbeatable for value and practicality. Even a three-row SUV cannot give you as much storage, seating configurations and overall space that a van can.
Minivans drive and handle more like cars than their trucky counterparts, they get better fuel economy and for those of us with kids it really is the smartest choice.

Of course, the …Of course, the minivan evolved with its own stigma of boredom and parenthood imprisonment. As the world moved on, young parents, who had themselves been shuttled in these seven-passenger contraptions as children, didn’t want to follow in their parents’ footsteps.
