Pros: Base vehicle comes with modular seats that are easy to lift out..
Cons: It's a minivan and drives like one.
Advice: Rebates & Discounts; purchased $ 26,000 list for $ 17,500. Keep on dealing!I have a growing family, son 3 1/2, daughter 11 months, and with all the usual gear (car seats, stoller, diaper bag, ect) there was no room left to carry anything else in our small sedans. I liked the Kia with all its options & low price, but didn't like 20 mpg highway & questioned Kia's first try at a minivan. Ford was too expensive & wouldn't/couldn't deal. The Pontiac was nicer than the Chevy (Too many Ventures on the road & they all looked the same). The Pontiac has a more sportier look (Our is silver w/black cladding), nice solid supportive seats, good mileage. There is no mistaking it for any thig but a minivan-don't try taking a fast sweeping turn too fast because it won't. But I purchased it to get my family around in confort at a price I could afford.
