I was impressed with how low the engine is, but on a vehicle the size of a minivan? My neighbor showed off all of the features and it seemed like an extremely well-designed vehicle, but when he opened the hatch I remembered what SlowMover (?) said to that hybrid Tahoe cultist about how unnecessary high SUVs are.

A van would have had a much lower platform. That sound important when you are carrying heavy things. He convinced me that if I ever win Publisher's Clearinghouse (or somehow obtain financial independence on my own--ha!) that I would purchase a van for hauling stuff.

Do Toyota or Honda make cargo vans?
