I never thought I'd buy a minivan, now we have bought our second one in under two years.
After twenty months with my side entry van, my hand dexterity deteriorated to the point that I could not get in/out of the van. I now have a head array for driving, which I love, but the side entry van was very difficult to maneuver in and out of with the tight turns required. We now bought a rear entry van that is awesome. I'm able to pull straight in and back straight out. It makes me enjoy going out again!
