So being adults not always that easy! Make a lot of tough decisions, raising kids, paying bills…. you know the parent life. I know on a daily basis it really can be tough and sometimes make the right decisions is even harder. Like do I eat breakfast for breakfast or breakfast for dinner? Sometimes I just don’t understand and I do have to revert to my kid sometimes. So I’m glad for those really tough decisions I have websites like KBB.com a.k.a. Kelley Blue Book the book some of us know of, but now is all on a website/app. Kelley Blue Book is the trusted resource for new and used car buyers/trusted resource to help people make the best possible buying decisions.


Just recently had the pleasure to join a few dads in California for the #KBBDads event where we got to choose from a few pre-selected vehicles to pick out our family favorite.


Here’s a list of the few vehicles that we got to choose from Kelly Blue Book chose from over a wide group of different vehicles down to 5. Below are the top 5 that us dads had to choose from which are all really solid contenders.

  • 2016 Toyota Sienna SE
  • 2016 Subaru Outback 
  • 2016 Kia Optima SX Turbo
  • 2016 Honda Civic
  • 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe


What do you look for in a solid family vehicle? I posted the question to the Twitter Universe and here is what they had to say!


I would have to say functionality would be my number one item when looking for a family vehicle. How would you vote?

Out of the top 5 KBB.com Family Vehicle choices, I would have to saw the Toyota Sienna would be my larger vehicle choice and the Kia Optima SX Turbo as my go to sedan.

The Honda Civic is an over achever in my marks, but everyone has one. The Kia Optima still has the pep, style, warranty, and functionality I am looking for.
