I need help car shopping. I want a 6/7 seater, but am not sure what to get. What do you have and what are pros and cons to it? I have a list of about 4 or 5 that I like, but nothing I love.
Thank you for the help!!!!

We have a 2011 dodge journey... I guess it's a cross over, but it has third row seating. It's a boring nothing fancy, but it works for what we need.

Nissan Armada (big brother to the Pathfinder), I LOVE it but it LOVES gas. Mine is 4x4 and has a Bully Dog Tuner on it and I average 13 mpg. That is a lot of idling and sitting in traffic and at red lights. It is very roomy. I have had Tahoes, Expeditions, a diesel Excursion a rental Suburban and none of them compare to the Armada in my opinion. But it also depends on your wants and needs. If your priority is a lot of cargo space the Suburban would be a great choice, if you want something that seats three rows comfortably and still have average cargo space the Armada has the best in class seating room. 

When we were looking, we lined a Suburban and an Armada right next to each other and the Suburban was longer by only a few inches. The Suburban like I said earlier wasn't as roomy for the passengers but had a lot of cargo space. The Armada had a lot more room for the passengers but not as much cargo space. For me, I have spawn of the Jolly Green Giant so leg space was important with three growing boys and a little girl who has legs like a flamingo.

I just got a Buick Enclave and I love it! It has all the bells and whistles....the only downside was the cost. It was a bit more than I would have like to have spent

We had a Mazda CX-9 before trading it for a 4Runner. Honestly we kind of regret it, the CX-9 has guts and was a blast to drive as well as super roomy!

I have this too and love it. Fits my 3 kids just fine plus when traveling with family its nice that my bil who is 6'2" can sit in the second row and i dont need to move my seat and im not hugging the dash. I dont have the issue with the rear seat belt but i do like that it hides away so you can fold down the seats. :)

I have a GMC Acadia. I LOVE it! I have captains seats in the second row so the 3rd row is easy to get to. You can fit 3 adults in the back, but it's tight. 3 kids is fine. I hate the middle seatbelt in the 3rd row, it comes down not across, so I don't put a kid there unless I have to.
