I HATE my vehicle.....it's nickel and diming us to death. It's out of commission right now and I'm driving my Dad's Ford Taurus right now....the kids fit in there pretty good....so I was considering getting a car.
We have a family of 5 and I drive a Nissan Pathfinder (with 3rd row). It does not get awesome gas mileage, but it does have variable 4wd, so that's nice for the winter :)
We have 3 in carseats and that would be hard to fit in a smaller car.
