Definitely wordnet. Culturally distinct from the blah, blah, blah crossovers/minivans/suvs that surround it.

Having a minivan in the house for 20 years, and not caring for SUV's in general, the Enclave is a PERFECT fit for us. :thumb:

didn't your parents give you that talk already. if they didn't i will tell it for you

when a mommy and a daddy love each other very much they decide to buy a baby, they go to a dealer and ask to order one, once you have ordered one and mommy and daddys pens meet it then creats an order form about 9 months later (if your lucky) the car goes through a developing stage were it gets doors and gps and dvds and all the other things GM wanted it to have, once it is fully developed your car is delivered by the stork with the big 500 hp desil engine and a big trailer to haul your baby, but then the daddy goes in to labor as he signs a check for 45,000 dollars. although some times it can be created with defects, like water leaks and tranny problems, or even worse scratches and bumps, but those are easly fixed by the doctor. THE END. DONT ASK WHY I DID THIS. ;D

Wow, you 'splained it so well for the folks who didn't know all this. I think my description of the "******* child of a full size SUV and a minivan"[/color]...may be a more modern version of your story since not all baby's have both a mommy and daddy nowadays. Some times it involves a factory in Lansing, MI. Winky, winky...[/color] :binky:

In regards to definitions when we looked at the Chevy Traverse, the salesman told us that the name is not Traverse like the city in Michigan, it is Traverse, as in to "cross over". Witty hah?
