That said, I like the Quest myself having test driven both it and the modern Chrysler Town and Country. Its interior is very nice, the powertrain smooth, and it's different from the herd.
Yes, I was aware of the shorter vertical space, and it doesn't bother me a bit. I'm not looking for raw volume, but utility. I like the way the seats fold (since I'm already used to it in my Tribeca). Subaru should build one like it, and I would definitely buy one. Time to write my Subaru rep again.
