Car suggestions...

looking to get a new 2013 vehicle...

i want something good on gas but can fit a family of 4.  my kids are older so i dont need space for a stroller.  they are both in Gracos Nautilus so it needs to be able to fit that.  

i have a 2009 Chrysler Town & Country, got it when DD was born, but we havent needed the space for a stroller since she was about 18 months old (thats when she stopped using one), so the space in the van is just wasted.

not really looking to spend more than $25k (not looking for car payments)

DH thinks just because its a car and not a truck or a van it isnt safe.

i would love an Audi but they are more than what i am looking to spend.

Suggestions would be helpful please.  thanks

We have two Honda Accords and LOVE them!  Plenty of room for us and our two boys.

I love my Toyota Avalon, next model up from the also good Camry. Totally comfy and safe. It's a heavy vehicle and will allow your kids space as they get older. My teen loves sitting in the back because the back seat reclines slightly. My toddler loves javing leg room when daddy sits up front and doesnt have to scoot back. Great for tall people. I had an SUV and at first felt uneasy about the kids being in a sedan. In the two years I had my SUV five different people hit me, not my fault. Had this one for almost a year and not one accident. Good luck finding the right fit for you and your family.
