MINI VANS AREN'T MINI VANS ANYMORE! 

Mini Vans aren't incredibly sexy...but when you play music, have three tall boys to hall around, a dog and lots of musical gear, it's the perfect solution.

I've been driving a car for the last three years...which was great! It was reliable...roomy and worked at the time.

IT'S EXACTLY WHAT I NEEDED

But the longer I've been back in the area, the more places I've been traveling...playing music with Power Cordes, and now with a new band, FastTrack; it was becoming harder and harder to get all my stuff in and out of that car...and being a tall girl..getting in and out of that car isn't always easy on a girl with a back that doesn't want to cooperate daily.

WHAT I THOUGHT I WANTED AND WHAT I ENDED UP WITH

I remember when I had a Dodge Grand Caravan. It was awesome. It was a vehicle that I could just slide right in..I didn't have to jump up in a truck, or force myself to sit WAY down in a car!  I loved my first Caravan so much, that I actually had a Caravan after that. For awhile, my family had two vans at the same time; and although some people don't think they are 'cool' enough...they are more than cool enough for me. They make sense!

THANK YOU JEN!

So as I was in search of a new Dodge Grand Caravan, I met up with my friend Jen Odette, to help me find just the right van.

After riding in about 6 vans, she ended up putting me in front of something I had never considered. A Chrysler Pacifica! Wow! Talk about easy on the back! This vehicle had low mileage, stow and go seats, and the best part for me, an automatic stow and go seat in the back!

ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES

I'm not sure I've ever had a vehicle with so many bells and whistles. Wanna talk about a cool van? It's got leather seats, stow and go seats, sun roof for the front, center and rear of the vehicle. It's got lots of storage room in the back, heated and vented seats, (did I mention it has power stow and go in the back?), Car Play, Monitors in the center row seats for long trips and just about  everything else you can think of.

I'm SO excited! I just want to drive all day!  Thanks Jen for helping me find just the right vehicle with the right price, and giving me a great trade in value for my Impala.
