    Or demand inclusion of the $50 envelope-style cargo net in your $41,590 vehicle.

    I dunno, I've had two cars with nets now and neither worked out all that well. One was an idiot netted shelf device in a Quest we had - that shelf was really useless. I have grocery hooks in the current van and they are a bit of a pain to use. Mostly I carry a small Igloo cooler around (it gets hot here) and wind up tossing groceries in it. For bigger loads in a minivan, flipping one of the rear seats up to gain access to the well in the floor is hard to beat.

    My sister, on the other hand, got a Crosstrek a few months back and begged me for one of my extra nets. Unfortunately I had donated mine to the thrift when we moved.

    From the pics I've seen, it secures at both the top and bottom corners so in theory you can put some stuff inside the net, and use it to keep other stuff between the net and the closed hatch.

    That was an issue with my limited trial run on the Quest - you had to be careful that stuff wouldn't fall out when you opened the hatch.

    I'm thinking hammock. I have a spare in a box around here. :)

    Many of us buy a minivan because it hauls a lot of stuff and gets decent gas mileage. Could you give us some actual dimensions:
    How tall is the door opening, with the third seat down what is the length and width of the back, with the second row folded against the front seat, and the third seat stowed, what is the length and width of the back area?
