Two years ago we bought the dreaded mini-van. Neither of us wanted one but with the third child on the way it seemed the logical choice. We researched, created spreadsheets, test drove all of the vans out there and finally settled on one. The biggest flaw with this mini-van was the tires. We hated the tires. They ride terrible and they are crazy crazy expensive. Well the time had come to replace them after only just over 40K miles. Oh, did I mention that these tires wear terribly too? After much thought, more spreadsheets and more test drives we decided to keep this van and replace the tires to get about one more year out of it. Wow, was that painful. I am still not sure that was the right decision but its done now. Maybe next year there will be another vehicle that we will love more and can haul around our large family. Hmmm....maybe not.
