Now that we've got a pretty good look at these, which GM minivan would you be most likely to buy, (I know I know--force yourself to pretend you need a minivan, okay?).

My choice, hands-down, is the Buick Terraza.

I'm not voting. You should have put in a "GM needs to go back to the Drawing Board" option in there. None of them are worthy of our votes IMO.

I vote none of the above. the Caravan is the clear winner. Even the Freestar looks lie a better vehicle than these.

Hmm, point taken.

I don't exactly have a strongly negative opinion about these so far, except that they're way too similar; BUT, for those who are absolutely disgusted with what they see, allow me to rephrase the question:

Which of the '05 minivans is least likely to make you puke?

...better? B)

I dunno, Rex, the Caravan is starting to look pretty dated to me:



Like a last generation Toyota minivan.

I think the exterior is over the top, but the Nissan Quest wins my vote for "Most Likely to have originated in this century":




As for the GM lineup, I go for the SV6 ("Montana" is just a dumb name for a Pontiac)

I'm referring to the 2005 Caravan, especially the functionality of the seats. Even if looking a little older, the Caravan is still a nice looking design.

I was at my Nissan dealership to check out the Titan and I saw a Quest, it was perhaps the WEIRDEST and ugliest minivan I have seen. Nissan is good at making cars!!!!

That's fine, I understand that you don't have a strongly negative opinion. I can respect that. However, you're poll is asking for others opinons ;)

It's all good though. Soldier on!

The Freestar more attractive than the SV6! HA, that thing is horrible...it looks like a block on wheels...

I would say that the best is by far the SV6, interior and exterior. I just hope that they offer larger engines than they are saying!

Guys, minivans are ugly and boring. God forbid someone make one that does not look like a Japanese spaceshuttle or the cut it out of the same boring mold.

The Freestar and the Caravan, as functional as they are, they are still Minivans, they look like minivans, they look like the same mold of the ones sold in what, 1994?

The Quest, Oddessy, and Sienna, are Japanese shuttle looking things. They look like they should replace the Detroit People Mover (For those of you in the area).

While yes I agree that GM really did a badge engineering job here, and the cost they saved is showing and what not, but at least they are different from the rest of the pack.

I agree that the Chrysler minivan twins are starting to look dated, but I think they are still the best looking minivans on the market. Having said that, I like the looks of these new GM models for the most part. I have two major complaints with the exteriors on all of them. The design of the headlights is really bad. It just looks terrible. My other complaint is the exposed tracks for the sliding doors. They made no attempt to hide them and they really mar the looks of the side of the vehicles.

Good point. Funny, but these CSVs remind me of the (also car-minivan based) Toyota Highlander and Honda Pilot in some ways --- like a true mix of minivan and faux-by-four car-based Ute.

and this should be a good thing as the Highlander and Pilot both sell well, eh?
