Hey y’all — Happy Saturday! Who remembers when I was lamenting the fact that I drove a Dodge Caravan for a week and fell in love? If not, catch the post here then come back to this post, it will make even more sense … it’s real, it’s raw, it’s hilarious, it’s my midlife crisis/cry for help up close and personal so don’t miss it! LOL!
Anyhoodles, George (the Dodge Caravan, I named him George), changed my life complete. I’m now honestly in the market for a minivan because this #momlife doesn’t have to be so hard. On top of that, I got this wheelchair to lug around on the daily because spina bifida, so standing 6′ 1″ tall and dropping it low to put a 40lb manchild and a 20lb wheelchair into this sedan is no longer a good look for me (or my back per my masseuse). There’s gotta be a better way … and there is … God says minivan saints.
… my family spent an entire Saturday running around St. Louis car dealerships to test drive potential vehicles. We test drove a Honda Odyssey and Kia Sedona, and we looked at a Honda Pilot, Chevrolet Traverse and stalked a Toyota Sienna. Since then we’ve actually rented a Toyota Sienna for almost an entire week. The best part is, I periscoped the entire Saturday bringing my followers along for the ride #puntotallyintended #rimshot. If you’re not following me on Periscope you should so you can interact real time and not miss out because I don’t always post all my broadcasts here after the fact.

And now the moment you’ve all been waiting for! Stacks on stacks on stacks of videos from Test Drive Saturday! Sit back, relax, grab a beverage and get into my experience and ultimate thoughts on each car:
First up, Part 1, the Honda Odyssey (and Pilot)
Next, Part 2, the Chevy Traverse
Next, Part 3, the Kia Sedona (and Toyota Sienna)
Finally, Part 4, My Wrap Up and Final Thoughts
*WHEW* That was one exhausting day but definitely worth every minute. Like I said, we’ve actually rented a Dodge Caravan and Toyota Sienna both for a week so my husband and I are currently chocked full of information about all of the cars mentioned and shown. We haven’t made our purchase yet but you can probably guess what direction we’re leaning in.
