Soccer mom's ride gets pimped:
new Chrysler minivans can play TWO movies.
If your kids can't agree on which DVD to watch on the way to the grandparents or Grand Canyon, you may be able to restore family harmony with a 2008 Chrysler Town & Country or Dodge Grand Caravan.
Twenty-four years after helping to invent the soccer mom, Chrysler introduced its fifth generation minivans at the Detroit auto show. The new vans can be equipped with two independent DVD entertainment systems, allowing occupants of the middle and third rows to watch different movies or videos. When the entertainment ends, the middle seats can swivel around to face the rear seats, so the kids can fight over which DVD was better.
