anyone need a new car?

I have a 2008 RAV4 so basically I can't put three across in the back. I'm looking at the Honda Pilot with the 3rd row that seats 8. What bout you?

We bought a honda Odyssey before L was born. I it, you might want to look at one instead of a Pilot, the sliding, automatic doors of a minivan can't be beat with a bunch of littles and all the car seats

Re: anyone need a new car?

uhm. YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've been wanting to get a new car since DD was born. We have a 1998 Jeep Wrangler (not kid friendly....or safe) and a VW GTI. Love that car, but it's a 2 door. And I've been crawling in and out of that damn car for the last 2 years. DH doesn't understand my wanton desire for a new car as he hardly ever takes her anywhere and doesn't understand that, yes, it's a HUGE PITA to get her in and out. Sigh.

So, I told him we need to trade the Jeep in and get a mini van Ok. Maybe not a mini van, but a wagon-type thing would be nice. More than 2 doors and a spot for the dog in the back...

Yep! Well maybe. We have a ford focus, 4 door with the hatchback and it is going to be a very tight squeeze not to mention very little trunk space. We will make do for a while I am sure.

Re: anyone need a new car?

I am but DH isn't on board yet. Since it took me a year to convince him to conceive another child, I'm waiting a couple months before delving into the new car discussions again, lol. I'm eying both the new Nissan Quest and the Toyota Sienna. I love the Pilot but I don't see the point in having a third row you can't access, which you can't if there are 2 car seats in the middle.

Re: anyone need a new car?

Ha ha, yeah I second the waiting to bring up the topic with DH. Mine still doesn't even want to think about double strollers, LOL, so we haven't had the car talk yet. We have a Honda Accord 4door. . .so technically it will work. But we won't be able to have any guests in the car and I am getting tired of bending to put ds in and out of the car seat all the time.

We only have one car right now, as DH commutes to work without a car, but that might change too. So we have talked in the past about getting a bigger car as a second (mom) car and having the Accord become DHs car. But at least we don't have to buy one before the babe is born. . .although we still talk about having a 3rd child, so as someone mentioned, might be a safer idea just to buy the big car now!

I hate the thought of a minivan (I don't know what exactly). . .but I hear Prius is supposed to come out with some bigger cars. . .

I'm totally with you on the mini-van, but my DH is so NOT. I have no idea, but he is so ANTI mini van.

Our car died on us around tax time, so we just upgraded to a van. We're all set with room for number 4!
