Some people give their cars nicknames.
Amanda Flores did. She lovingly calls her 2018 Sienna “The Phoenix.”
“Phoenix rose from the ashes,” Flores says matter-of-factly. “And I did, too. My minivan had a lot to do with that.”
Flores was a busy mother of two with a full-time advertising career when, around the end of 2014, she felt a little worn down.
It took three trips to the doctor to pinpoint the cause. By then, it was almost too late.
Watch the video above to hear Flores' story.
