Re: Just drove a 2017 Pacifica. Impressed!

I'll bet the 60s era Country Squire was the first wagon with third row. It faced rear, of course, and no seat belts back then, and babies could be on a mattress between the seats. Man, how times have changed. I think I'm showing my age! lol

LOL... I hear you on that.

The 67 had two opposing "third row" seats. They opened facing each other. Not of much use beyond seating for small kids but they were cool.

Re: Just drove a 2017 Pacifica. Impressed!

Just looking around a bit and saw the Audi SQ5, haven't seen one in person but they look pretty nice in the videos I have seen on you tube. Supercharged and and 354HP :-)

Wished they were about 10k cheaper though and I would go test drive one.

Yeah. SQ5 is awfully nice, but pricey. They've also really cleaned up the cabin tech. Unfortunately, short on cargo space compared with GC. MB GLC is also nice but too small. GLE is perfect except for price and typical Mercedes need for service too often. Again, only a 5 seater, though. If your needs are such, you can't beat the minivan and imho, the Pacifica might be the best currently available.

I disagree. The Q5/SQ5 is horribly dated. It's in dire need of a redesign.

And looks to be about the size of a Honda Civic.

The first family cars I remember were a couple AMC Ambassador wagons. Then we got a brand new 1973 AMC Matador.

They're just waiting for some single guys to come out here and say stupid things to give them something else to talk about.
