****, I am 59 going on 25 and still modding the **** out of all my cars (and doing all my own work)...Only just got started on this one.
Plus my other ride.....
.....so you put the satellite in the Pacifica then put the van in a rocket to send it into space?No f’n way are you 59 lol.
I’m 38 this is my 4th mini van. I use them for selling and installing satellites. Been at it since 2004. This is by far the nicest one I’ve owned even though there are things that i am pretty let down on for the original price tag of the van but I’ve had trucks , suvs , fast cars ect and the mini van is really one of the best vehicles a person can own unless you need to tow a lot. It would be a lot cooler if the Pac would come in awd but then there would be no stow n go.
I mod all my vehicles so this one will be modded soon. First mod happened a day after i got it and it goes in next Friday for another.
"2500 miles and still using the original tank of gas provided by the dealer." :surprise::surprise::surprise:I am one of the 70-somethings. No grandchildren yet, just occasional visits from our adult sons and their significant others so we really don't need a people carrier. But I missed the cargo capacity of the Toyota Previa that we had for 15 years. After it died that Previa got traded in for a Prius. Now I have the best of both worlds, a PHEV minivan. Mostly use it for errands around town and carrying R/C planes to the flying field. 2500 miles and still using the original tank of gas provided by the dealer.
Shortly after I wrote that we went on a camping trip and had to fill the tank. :frown2: Which is exactly why it fits our situation so well. Enough electric range to handle all the errands around town and a gas engine for the longer trips. :smile2:"2500 miles and still using the original tank of gas provided by the dealer." :surprise::surprise::surprise:
Very correct. Like here, old and no kids.(well, I do have a four year old, but she is a cat.)The poll is interesting in that I think it points out a misconception about who buys them. All the marketing I've seen is directed at child rearing ages, yet about half the respondents are beyond that usual age. I'd like to see more features and option choices directed at older owners.
We travel to the Catskill Mountains every summer, family vacation, and this is the ideal vehicle to fit the family and everything we want to take as well. I also have a kid in college, so it comes in handy to have the room to move things back and forth.What's with the 51-60 group screwing up our Bell Curve? Kids out of the house but not yet grandparents?
I agree we may be a significant owner share, but I am sure that dealer feedback gives them a very accurate picture of the ownership age groups. But it is probably also skewed by their assumptions that many of us in the older group are focused on grandchildren transport -- if we buy the entertainment packages (like I did,) that guides their advertising as well. And in today's 2 working parent families, many may have become "soccer grandparents."The poll is interesting in that I think it points out a misconception about who buys them.

Didn't want to relist everything, but great points.[edited]......
And where did the nice features go? Rear vent windows, dual glove boxes, Under-seat storage, I can’t begin to use all that cup storage, but the console ones could be larger diameter so insulated metal cups would fit instead of allowing them to spill if you have to brake hard.......
Speaking of consoles, it seems everything designed since the premium version on my ’08 T&C has become less and less useful....
