I have a 13 year old. A 5 year old still in a booster seat(high back) and a newborn come April. What is a good reliable car/van/SUV that would be comfortable for all 3 of my kids. I've been looking but I want actual experience. Thanks!!

We have a truck and love it or if you can find a good Excursion that was fabulous, a Yukon would be good.

We have a Toyota Sienna (3 kids).  I had an Explorer before my 3rd was born and we got rid of it because even with the 3rd row we had in it, it never would have fit 3 kids.

Durango! we are getting a dodge dart! My husband works at dodge so its not only a good family car/cheap but he gets it for cheaper. our payments are going to be around 150 a month for a brand new one!

Have you considered a Subaru Outback?  I know a couple of people who own one and they love it.  It's got great reviews.

I love my car but it wouldn't be a good fit for 3 kids. I only have one child.
