Re: anyone need a new car?

Man, you guys are making me want a new car! I love my 2007 Nissan Versa - and even better, it will be paid off by February - but it's going to be a TIGHT fit with all four of us. We'll be fine until we try to take a family trip. We've talked about buying a rack and space case for the top of the car. A lot less money than a new vehicle! Though I'd love to have a Mazda5 wagon. They're so roomy. And we think this is our last kiddo, so it would be plenty of space for us.

We'll probably opt for saving $ and not getting a new car, though. Which is for the best, but... bummer.

We are looking to get a Flex. We only have a Honda Civic and it won't hold a 3rd seat. I need something that is BIG but drives more like a car rather than an SUV or a huge van and I had looked at a Flex. They look very stylish too! Does it drive nice? How's parking? Sorry I'm going to bug you now that I know you have the car I really want!

We will probably try to get one this fall but I want to test drive one NOW!!

Re: anyone need a new car?

Not sure what we're going to do. I drive a Hyundai Accent 2 door, so no way 2 carseats are fitting in there. DH has a Dodge Stratus, so not sure if I can teach him to drive a straight and switch, or if we'll be looking for a bigger car for me.

I love driving mine, it does drive like a nice family sedan. It has the rear backing alarm on it which helps me not hit trash cans lol, sun roof with the vista roof in the back, the kids love it cause they can pull the shades when it is sunny and look for the moon at night lol. I have the leather interior cause I find it easier to keep clean then cloth, it feels great with the seat warmers. Plus the leg room in the middle and back fits my 6'4 husband comfortably. We got ours a year old and it was a leased vehicle. Saved us a ton of money! Plus it is holding it's value!

Re: anyone need a new car?

OP--do you think you could fit three Radians across the back? It might buy you some more time to save up for a minivan or Pilot.

I am able to fit a Highback booster, a Radian and a Scenera across the back of our Honda Accord. I know this because our minivan has been in the shop for about 3 weeks

Re: anyone need a new car?

Well I bought a Honda Pilot the other day 8 seater baby. I couldn't be happier.

The RAV4 cannot sit 3 carseats across safely, even if they fit across. The seatbelt configuration is really crappy.
