I need a vehicle that holds more the 5 people!

What do you have? How is the gas mileage on it? How many people does it hold? Do you love it or hate it? Pros and cons? I am mini van/SUV shopping and I need ideas.

  • My girls are three and four, both in SKR and I am expecting an infant son in August. I can fit the three carseats in the back of my dodge avenger.

  • I have an 8 passenger Toyota Sienna. I love it. I just got it (it replaced my 10 yr old Sienna) a month ago. Almost immediately took it on a 3300 mile road trip, Death Valley included. It performed flawlessly, including the air.

    I have 3 kiddos, 5, 10 &12 (oh, and DH.)

  • We loved our Astro Van moved in it, hauled people in it, traveled around town in it. It was great!!

  • I had a Nissan Pathfinder before I traded it in. It held seven people and had a third row that you could fold up or down. The problem with it was the if you used the last row you had hardly any storage in the back and my stroller wouldnt fit in much less anything else. I decided it was pointless and sold it. When you're looking make sure to keep a close eye on storage. You might even ask to test drive the car for the day or overnight and see how your things really fit in before you buy it. I wish I had!
