The minivan is a car that screams domesticity. It calls to mind images of suburbs, family life and youth soccer teams. The car once helped save Chrysler from total ruin in the 1980s, but now it's relegated to a small portion of the automotive market. Meanwhile, buyers scoop up sport utility vehicles and crossovers at an increasing rate, and automakers are faced with the choice of whether they ought to keep selling these multi-purpose vehicles or throw in the towel.
