Chana Starlight (2008 - Current)
We say:
Chances are, this will pick up your kids to and from school as the official shuttle service. It seats 7, despite the compact footprint. The Starlight features (oddly) swing-type doors as opposed to sliding ones. Hard plastics are the norm, and there are no power features. Drivetrain's from Suzuki so at least it's reliable and believe it or not, it's iPod ready with a built it aux input.

As a shuttle service, your kids don't have a choice.
As a family car, you have a dozen better choices.
