Our 7-seat minivan has been well-loved by our family for about 7 years. We continue to enjoy it's conveniences for taking the kids with friends for adventures and traveling comfortably on road trips while playing our tunes. Many times on the weekends and weekdays it sits around as we prefer to use our walks, bicycles and "beater" for most errands and even running the kids around. We keep it pretty clean, but can't claim spotlessness. After all, it has helped raise a family. There is also a small dent above the left side wheel from a hit and run. Not a safety concern, but if you are going on a first date you may want to find another car.
