Hi all,
I need to replace my vehicle. In looking for a replacement, comfy seats is paramount, as is room to lay down (I spend a lot of time in my back seat presently). Price is a factor - needs to be cheap. I'm thinking of Dodge caravans as the seats are stow and go, so I could put a nice bed back there. Maybe a truck. Ideas?

Forgive the obvious, but check out Consumer Reports...local library. The libraries have the back issues going back many years, so you can also review the older models that may be more in your price range.

yes, I'm using consumer reports. Narrowing down to good back seats to lay down in, good lumbar support, and good suspension is harder to come by. I've been doing some test drives, but of course the process is very slow given how I need to pace myself. Was just hoping some folks on here would have some good ideas based on what they drive.
