Minivans are Popular at Brown Motors


“The Chrysler Town & Country and the Dodge Grand Caravan have always been very popular family vehicles,” says Steve Brown of Brown Motors in Petoskey, MI. “What you might not expect are the number of people & businesses who love the minivan for ease of entry and the huge amount of hauling capacity!” Consider this: the Dodge mobile man cave!

An article in Automotive News just pointed out that the humble family hauler is becoming cool again. “You have had a lot of high-mileage minivans out on the road, and now as those shoppers look around they find that minivans still have a lot of appeal to their active family life,” said Paul Taylor, chief economist of the National Automobile Dealers Association. The suburban stigma is also fading, he says. “People are less sensitive about driving minivans and the minivans of today are better looking than they were 10 years ago,” Mr. Taylor said. That’s an understatement!

The Chrysler & Dodge minivans of today have amazing features that make your life so much easier. The Stow’n Go Seating literally makes the 2nd and 3rd row seats disappear and opens up a cavernous space to haul cargo! But leave the seats up and you can comfortably transport a lot of people while keeping them totally entertained. The technology available is best in class! Let’s look at the why buy lists!
