yes this is a MINI VAN!! yikes!! We took the plunge, we ran out of room in our Jeep Liberty (so sad) mommy really liked the Jeep. We saw this 08 town and country touring and loved it. It does everything we need. Lots of space, child safety,easy opening doors all the fun stuff. So please dont tease mommy especially daddy (he is not to sure about the Mini van idea yet) it is really fun to sit backwards in the van while mom and dad are driving that is my favorite part.
