    Nissan does make minivans, but their real focus is on the crossovers (namely the Rogue which is actually a pretty nice vehicle) and the sedans (especially the Altima). I've worked so much overtime in the last year because they've been selling those Altimas like hotcakes. It's a nice car too so I can understand that but working basically 8 straight months of 6 day workweeks cause of the increased Altima production was insane. They're also selling Pathfinders like hotcakes as well (so much for the SUV market having gone down the drain) as our truck line has worked even more Saturdays than we have. It's going to be insane over there on truck side once we start building the Rogue on the same line as the Pathfinder and Infinity JX.

    Even if I did have kids, I wouldn't go for a minivan. I'd go for a Rogue (if fuel mileage was a huge concern) or a Pathfinder (if it wasn't a concern). They've done a really good job with the styling and I see so many 300,000+ mile Nissans running around here it's ridiculous.
