    What van would you buy?

    Ok guys- fill me in on mini vans... overload me, please

    We really need to get a mini van- we have four kiddos now, three are in car seats.
    I would prefer a mini van over an SUV since I think the gas milage would be better... but correct me if I am wrong. Price is not a big issue- I want something that has enough tethers and LATCH for the car seats.... of course nice safety ratings and a smooth ride. We would prefer a new van like a 2010 or 2011 model.
    I have never owned a van so I have no idea what to look for but I would love to have automatic doors... you know the ones where I just push the button and it opens all by itself

    The kids are as following... not sure if it matters but here they are:

    DS1 16yrs seat belt
    DS2 3 1/2 yrs 30 lbs Radian and RA50
    DD1 19 month 18 lbs Radian and RA50
    DS3 3 weeks 8ish lbs MyRide65 and SafeSeat

    The three year old can either RF or FF right now he is RF in my car and FF in daddy's Truck

    Momma to three munchkins! Own a Recaro ProSport, FR85, TF, Blvd70, Scenera, Radian, Britax Chaperone, Evenflo HBB, Evenflo NBB ... cruising around in a 2011 Ford Explorer and 2011 F-150
