Minivans may be one of the most unattractive vehicles on the road but when it comes to practicality, they are hard to beat. Buckets seats, third rows, deep trunks and sliding doors make the aerodynamic wheels hard to resist for parties of four or more. Before having kids, I swore up and down that I would never command such a vessel but now that I'm part of the motherload, I'm reconsidering my options. Even mama Heidi Klum admits to the wonder of the minivan. On her recent Ellen appearance, hostess Ellen asked the expectant lady if she could avoid the dreaded minivan to which Heidi replied, "No way. We all don’t fit otherwise... It’s impossible."

What are your thoughts on the minivan? Yea or Nay?
