So I'm expecting #3 and need a bigger vehicle. I had an alero but my BF took that and gave me the chrysler 300 to drive but i need bigger, yes 3 carseats will fit in it but the double stroller will not and forget about diaper bags and extra clothes and the winter emergency kit. I need something that's better on gas mileage than an SUV (like an expedition or tahoe etc) but has the room I test drove a chrysler pacifica but not enuff room in the drivers seat I need to be full arm length away from the steering wheel I'm afraid of air bags and feel clostraphobic if i don't have enuff room. So now I have no idea what to get I really liked the pacifica til i sat in that seat and test drove it. Any suggestions would be great.

We have a GMC Envoy. It is very spacious, but it is still and SUV so it will probably be considered a gas guzzler :-( I will give you a bump though...hopefully you find something helpful

I have an '04 KIA SORENTO I can fit 2 infants and a 3 yr old(in a booster). Plus the diaper bags, 2 big strollers and an umbrella stroller. I don't know if I would want to do that everyday but they fit. I watched a show about cars for moms, Nissan Quest is the "hot, soccer mom van" My aunt has one and I think it would be good except fitting all of the strollers. Maybe you should get an Escalade or Expedition, they are huge.

try a mini van... I know alot are like soccer mom when you see a mini van, but we were in a corolla with 2 kids and it was tight, so we got a mini van, its good on gas and has plenty of room for at least 3 more kids,  I spend 30.00 to fill the tank every other friday then usually the week after I have to put in another 10-20 depending on how much we run around, but its really good on gas for a V6....   

Try a new 2010 Equinox... they have more room and are nice, and get 33 miles to the gallon... they are ecofriendly and are very nice looking. highway miles you can get 500 miles on one tank of gas. Its really nice. once my kids are out of carseats it on the list!
