MV-1

These are used as handicapped taxis in Winnipeg .. so they have to be terrific. It is what I would get as they are designed to be inexpensive (straight forward) to maintain .. so they trade off cool looks for practicality. I saw one a few years back and they are very neat. They sit quite high in traffic. Because they are intended for commercial use -- they would have to be durable -- and excellent resale because of all of that linked to your mostly domestic use -- almost all used ones would be former taxis.

Otherwise you best bet is a newer generation Chrysler Van.

The most reliable minivan is the Toyota Sienna, followed closely by the Honda Odysse. I'm not sure how commonly these are available as handicap accessible vans. Maybe the Toyota?

The MV-1 is definitely worth a look if you can find one.

If you contact this company - I bet they would give you terrific advice, plus they should have access to used ones as well. In any case they would know all the information you need. Ask about special pricing, read that article ...

.. if domestic vans seem the way to go .. they would also be able to point you in the right direction given your needs and BUDGET.

I think we'll wait another year or so. We decided to keep the old Grand Caravan and bought new tires.

The current generation Grand Caravan - or the much more expensive Town & Country is more like the Toyota and Honda - is worth a look. The powertrain and tightness is a big step up from the ones before it. If you can be patient, they have the "Pacifica" coming out .. which is a HUGE step forward .. but also it will be more expensive.

The hybrid could be very interesting ... good if you drive a lot.
