You know all the reviews out there of the V, especially the wagon, talking about how kids will be screaming in the back, or emerging with tears in their eyes and wobbly knees? Those might not be too far off the mark. Before my V had even cracked 100 miles on the clock this weekend, my nine-year-old son (who has gotten motion sickness all of once in his life to date) had vomited in the back seat.

Think of it as christening your new Wagon.

Dude, you have to stop those 100-0 mph sudden stops! Either that, or stop using the mall parking lot as a skidpad to test maximum g's. :) ROFL!

Had a "spirited" drive through a California pass about a month ago with my wife.

Had to stop at the summit and let her out to get some cold air on her face...

I'm not sure whether or not to laugh or cry about the puke part. There's not enough Ozium in the universe to kill that fume.

I always display an instructional video similar to the ones they show on airplanes before takeoff. I also supply barf bags behind each seat.

Yeah,, I laughed out loud when I first read about the puke, then I cried thinking about you cleaning it up :)

My two high-school daughters HATE my car....especially if I EVER lose traction! Now their male friends......well THAT is a different story!

I cannot transport my father-in-law in my V as every time I accelerate, he is convinced he is going to die. I'm honestly afraid I'm going to give him an MI when he sees my car.

My Dad and my son, though.... :) different story.

I was thinking about that for my license plate but someone in TX already has it, haha.

Thanks, hopefully they get a chance to enjoy it from behind the wheel one day.

The best part of it was watching them from the back looking out the windshield like they knew it was coming. Clearly Big Papí is schooling them right!!

My teenage daughter called me a loser when i took a corner about 1g. We were going to pick up one of her friends. As soon as her friend got in the wagon she told me to put it in Sport Mode to show her friend. I love being a loser.

My 4 month old daughter had a blow out in her diaper while in her infant seat. The poo almost made it out of the infant seat through the hole for the belt. Gross!!
