Our family car is, dare I say, a Mazda 5. Chick car? Yeah probably. But 30mpg with me, my wife, 2 kids, and camping junk? Heck yeah son! I'll call it a mini-mini-van all day long!

Actually, those are the least mini-van-like of the mini-vans. A friend bought one for his wife and ended up stealing it back to using it to haul things for his business when gas prices got to $3.25, and now his wife drives the Tacoma.

Oh absolutely. We usually go camp every other weekend and load it up with tents, coolers, gear for my family of 4, and then my actual family of 4 with room to spare! We really like it.

Eh, who cares. Drive what you like. I never bought into the "chick car" thing, although they generally don't appeal to me. I'm comfortable enough with my manliness to drive whatever I want, regardless of what anyone else thinks. It's like the "big truck = small unit" argument.

Personally, I'd take a real, smaller Mini over the new, bloated one. Although I do like the turbodiesel Clubman.
