I was listening to the show via podcast recently (so I’m not sure of the date) when the mom of a toddler who has twins on the way was calling for advice on what kind of car to buy. They needed to accommodate three car seats but didn’t want an SUV (environment) and would not be caught dead driving a mini-van. She thought a VW bus would be cool.
Click and Clack tried to gently tell her that she needed to think more about the needs of her family over being cool and recommended the Honda Odyssey. She wasn’t very enthusiastic.
I was very impressed with the brothers’ diplomacy. I wanted to (figuratively) reach across the airwaves and smack her for being so sanctimoniously clueless.
Still driving my large, uncool vehicle that I bought to accommodate my twins+1 and their car seats that is not nearly as nice as a Honda Odyssey but at least it’s not a VW bus.
*disclaimer: VW bus lovers, please don’t flame me. I have nothing against VW busses. Click and Clack just said on the show that they are a “death trap.”
