Our family is growing and my otherwise picky husband is actually allowing me to choose the (used) vehicle we will be carrying our kids & their friends in, we are thinking at least a 6 seater. (Yet he has already said no to a suburban because he said they guzzle too much gas.)

I am curious what other mommas are driving their kiddos around in & what do you like or hate about the vehicle? (Sorry if I left anything out of the poll)

A Plymouth Grand Voyager...not the most attractive thing in the world but it was big enough for myself, hubby and our 4 kids ( all of them still in booster or carseats), plus a friend if nessesary and we could afford to buy it with cash...it's older but it's actually held up pretty well...and it's got a lot of room lol.

We have a Lincoln Navigator and, yes, it's a gas guzzler but it's also safe and very comfortable with all the bells and whistles, so it makes it easier to travel in, especially with two carseats, which are in the second row and my 16 y/o has plenty of room in the 3rd row for herself.

I have a ford escape.  I have  3 girls..one in a booster.  I like it...not big and bulky ...not  too bad on gas.  Has enough room in the back incase we need to put groceries in the back or other things.  I bought it used and havent had any problems .......well...except the window needs a new regulator in it...but being used im expecting things like that.

I have a monte carlo that DH bought before we got together. The loan is up the end of this year and we will be selling it to buy something bigger.

I've been looking at trailblazers... the ext version.  It's a 7 seater, I can get leather and they're cute... lol.   Good reasoning there.  We'll look into it more when the time comes...

 We have a suburban.  I don't like the gas mileage, I do like that it seats our whole family.
