No, I did not buy a Dodge Caravan. Besides being out of my budget, I, like the family in the commercial, have ONE KID. Who needs that much car to cart one entitled kid who apparently needs TWO TV screens to keep herself entertained?
We’re still rolling in the 2003 Corolla which recently treated itself to a $1,500 brake job. The new car will likely be smaller than that. The list includes a Yaris or Ford Fiesta. I do understand that when you start a family, you need to evaluate how you’re going to cart everyone around and sometimes an SUV or Minivan just fits the bill. We just don’t need that much car ourselves but I’m not anti-Minivan or anything. I just think sometimes people get more car than they need. Some people don’t need any car. I know a couple in NDG whose family vehicle is one of these cool bikes from Denmark.
I do admit, I love the Toyota Highlander. But I fear if I ever got one, my kid would turn into an asshole.
Seriously, Dad? You’re gonna let your kid behave this way? I’m calling child protection services.
