  • Depends on a lot of things. How many kids, their activities, city vs. freeway driving.

  • I had a Ford Escape and I absolutely HATED that vehicle. I also had a Ford Freestyle and hated that too. Maybe it's just Fords...lol. No idea about the Subaru Wagon though.

  • I'd prefer the escape, but gas mileage wise.. the wagon might be better.

  • I'd go with the wagon. SUV's are still known for flipping

  • Personally, I say the Escape. I freely admit the I have an issue with anything called a "wagon." I have a Ford Expedition and I love it but, i have 5 kids so an Escape wouldn't do anything for me.

  • personally I would get a Suburban it is very roomy and it seat 8 (mine is a 2004) I love it bc I babysit (kids) and this vehicle for me comes in very handy I just make sure they all have a carseat and seat belted before we take off. It s like a mini bus for me I love it. GL
    An escape it might be a tad small and the other not sure what it is. My sd has an escape she got it for graduation.

  • What you need to do is find something YOU like... that fits YOUR life... I have three kids and I have a two door Monte Carlo SS... which I love... you don't always have to have a MOM car just because you are a mom. Get what you want, what you can afford, what suits you! I will tell you this though, if you are going to have more than 1 car seat and/or booster seat... take them with you when you test drive and check the fit! :)
