Time For An Upgrade!

I have SD7 and DS6, and now DD due in November. We have two vehicles: a Honda Civic and a Ford Focus. So once November hits, I'm going to find myself in dire need of more room.

I'm really thinking about trading one of my cars in on something bigger and have absolutely no idea of what to get. I'm wanting a three-row SUV, while my husband is pushing the minivan on me. Decisions, decisions...

That being said, what do you drive? How much room do you have? Do you like it? I need some suggestions, ladies! Thanks! :)

I always swore I would never get a minivan. Now I drive one and LOVE it. The gas mileage is decent and with car seats the push button sliding door is perfect. We bought ours used and when we need a new vehicle it will be another minivan.


BTW I was a die hard suv girl.

I'm definitely trying to hold out for the SUV, but it's hard to look past the price difference! What make and model do you drive? :)

with a newborn if you ever go on road trips   you can change their diaper in a mini van without having to get out of the car.

Mini van
I climbed into the third row of a full size SUV while pregnant and vowed to never own one.
I have a Chrysler town and country and LOVE it.
