What's the company that started the minivan craze? If you're old enough you remember when Chrysler/Dodge introduced the minivan back in the Lee Iacocca days during the 1980s. Here's a quick checklist to winterize your Dodge / Chrysler minivan or van before you hit the road during the harsh, cold weather of the winter months.

A for a lot of folks the minivan of choice is the Honda Odyssey minivan. Winterizing your Honda Odyssey involves taking care of the usual suspects  when it comes to maintenance for the cold, snow and ice of the winter months. The winter season also means holiday travel, before taking that road trip to grandma's house, be sure you have a car emergency kit stowed away in your minivan for...whatever may come with the extreme cold temperatures should your journey be interrupted

The lady who posed this question about the best minivan for driving in winter had flipped her van with 6 kids in while winter driving...Guess I'd be wondering the same thing too. She gets a number of different suggestions. What do you think is the best minivan to tackle the cold, snow and ice of winter season weather?

Because of the cold and snow of winter weather the sliding doors can have a problem with sticking. What to do? You probably already know the answer but here's the solution to stuck sliding doors - and ranks them according to efficiency, safety, cockpit and performance. May the best mom mobile win!

When the winter months arrives, a wheelchair van (handicap or mobility van) has ramps, hinges and batteries to consider with it comes to maintenance. Winterizing your handicap or wheelchair van will ensure that your specially-equipped minivan will be able to handle the freezing cold of the winter weather when you prepare your vehicle for the harsh snow and ice of the season.

The birds are gone, The ground is white,
The winds are wild, They chill and bite;
The ground is thick with slush and sleet,
And I barely feel my feet.
