I was always on of those teenagers who said I would never own a minivan when I had kids, but of course, I now have three kids & drive a minivan. I literally hate the looks of minivans, however they are just too practical to ignore. My dislike for our minivan grew as it seemed to have problem after problem. Although it only had 50,000 miles on it when we bought it, we ended up having to upgrade the transmission in the first year of owning it. It ran well for about more than one years, & then our heating system started acting up a single day. I noticed that I wasn’t able to adjust the blower. My partner was on a more than one week long company trip, & I didn’t want to spend the currency to go to the dealership to get it checked out, so I decided to search online to try & figure out the problem. The blower wasn’t turning off when I turned the car off either, so that meant if I didn’t repair the problem within the day, I would run the car battery dead. The two of us had to make more than one other trips that day to football games for our kids, & the car got so hot. The heating system was either on full blast or completely off. I finally broke down & called a friend of mine from high university who is a Heating & Air Conditioning serviceman. Although he didn’t usually work with cars, he figured out that I had a terrible receptacle & fixed the issue. I am so cheerful that the crazy heating system is no longer stuck on full blast!
